    Ground Rules

    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.

    As requested, here are the labeled islands of the Caribbean Sea, and the Pacific and Indian Oceans for reference.

    Furthermore, here is a blank map:

    I see one of you're maps is out of date. The Netherlands Antilles don't(or is it doesn't?) exist anymore.

    "It doesn't", it is singular just as the United States is singular. Which makes "los Estados Unidos" en espanol muy irritante.

    And I like to think of it as one country. We don't live in 1786 anymore.

    @Contre: Yes sir, I have done as you requested.

    Also, does anyone have recommendations for any other map templates to put in the OP?

    Sorry guys it is I just found this new thread. :blush:
    No to all of you above. Here is your hint: Red means the country has A, Blue the country has B, Yellow C, Purple A&B, Orange A&C, Green B&C and Brown is A,B&C. 24 more hours until the next hint.

    And that Pacific Island is Guam.

    Ok each color represents the presence of a company in that country according to my previous hint. 24 hrs until I reveal the answer.

    P.S. A smart person would possibly check previous threads where I could have mentioned this. :mischief:
