This is the redesign of the mapboard of Grand Siècle boardgame published by Azure Wish in 1993. The look & feel has been greatly improved. The map is now much more readable and intuitive, having at the same time a gorgeous graphic quality. It contains some key additional informations and is a bit larger. Some errors in the original map layout have been corrected and the map now contains a diplomacy track for minor nations and, last but not least, a useful legend.
