    One person will post a map, and everyone will try and guess what that map is representing. Once someone gets it right, they will post the next map. If they don't have a map/don't want to post one, then they can declare an open floor.

    If a map is posted, and no one is able to get it right/the person who posted it hasn't told us if someone got it right after a bit of time (one to two days), then open floor will be declared. If you post a particularly difficult map that is not finished after three to four days, post larger and larger hints to speed along the process.

    Also, if you are the first person to post on a new page, please re post the map unless you have customized display settings. The standard number of posts per page is 20. This is for the convenience of other users.

    Here are the labeled islands of the Caribbean Sea, and the Pacific and Indian Oceans for reference.

    Each colour indicates that the country leads in this item. The colours represent the top 12 items of this class of items. The split of Russia and China don`t matter, it was just the easiest way I could find to colour them with multiple colours. Obviously more hints will come after some guesses, as I do believe the map is a little lacking on its own.

    Different types of crime? US #1 in mass shootings, China #1 in mass stabbings, Nigeria #1 in religious violence, India #1 in rapings, and Russia #1 in bear riding.

    Do the colours somehow represent the item, or are they arbitrary?

    I'm not sure that Peru and the US are well-known for their profusion of Eastern Orthodox churches. :)

    Are the colors ordered by rank; i.e., is black low or high?

    There should be a new Amendment to the US Constitution, protecting the right to bear rides.

    Arbitrary. I went across the "standard colours" in excel and tacked on grey and black. To be honest, the different colours were included just because the final map is better being able to see what each country is top in.

    Dark Red
    Red
    Orange
    Yellow
    Light Green
    Green
    Light Blue
    Blue
    Dark Blue
    Purple
    Grey
    Black

    They show the top producer of these items. The items are all related. And the use of 12 is pretty arbitrary in that was the data I had.

    Yes. I was honestly surprised it wasn't entirely China and Russia (though they still hold half of them and there is a big drop of in quantity produced, Quinoa is a tiny fraction of corn.
