This is a very unusual and interesting map with a large inset of the United States. The western hemisphere map presents an odd border between Mexico and the United States, and it also displays the British perspective for the boundary with Canada. The large inset shows the United States, which extends to just beyond the Mississippi River. The map is filled with the river and mountain systems. A few cities are denoted with a small circle filled with a dot, but the cities are not labeled, and one can imagine that the players of this game were required to name the marked cities.
