a) Where is that?
b) Would the main roads be considered Narrow Streets?
Transylvania.
But it’s also very much like towns in NW Germany.
A main road through the village(not a narrow street), but the offshoot streets would be.

Viscri, Romania. Taken from the west.

Let me cogitate on this.

If you ask me, that is board 48 & SSR: "All Grain is Woods (or Orchards)."

von Marwitz
Yeah...
I know how that ends up.
The cry from the mini-mind gallery goes up;
“I don’t like wholesale terrain changes by SSR.”

I think we've jumped the shark.... sigh
Great idea! Sketch up a map depicting Paradise Cove, CA (where the infamous Fonzi scene was filmed) and we can design a hypothetical beach assault scenario using it! We'll need SSRs for Great White Sharks, water skiing and leather jackets.

I think so.

The normal geo-boards (even if you butt them together) tend to array the terrain - especially hill masses - either at 0° or 90°. As they are only 10 hexes wide each, this is probably mainly due to the physical limitations of the boards. Bd18 is an exception insofar the line of ridges of the hills is running diagonally across the board. However, these hills are very small and only level 1. Not much more can be done on a board that is only 10 hexes wide in this regard.

The Fort board dimensions offer 16 hexes for the purpose. Something like this very roughly - disregard the "real" 4a terrain:
