Map Collector - Help
Back to the main help page
On the left side of the game area (or above the game area on mobile devices), there are three views:
- Available maps: Shows a list of the maps that you can collect at your current position.
- Maps you still need: Shows a list of all maps. The ones you already have are grayed out, and the one you don't have yet aren't. That way, you can easily see which maps you still need to collect by looking at which ones aren't grayed out. You can't collect maps by clicking on them from this window (otherwise the game would be too easy), you need to go places where the maps are available and collect them from the Available Maps view. If you click on a map in this list, the corresponding line will be highlighted. To unhighlight it, click on the map again or press the Esc key.
- Maps your opponent still needs: Similar to "Maps you still need", but shows your opponent's maps. Only available in two-player games.
The number next to the title of the view is the number of maps in the view that you (or your opponent in the case of the last view) don't have yet.
By default, Available Maps is expanded on all devices and Your Maps is expanded on desktop devices. To collapse or expand one of these views, click on the title.
To collect a map, click on it in the Available Maps view. It will then appear in the Your Maps view, which shows that you have collected it. If the map that you are looking for is not in the Available Maps view, you need to go somewhere else to find it.
If you are looking for a map of a specific line, it's possible to find it anywhere, but you are most likely to find it either on that line or at a station where that line stops. The maps available at a specific station or on a specific line are changed each game month. This means that if you go back to a station you have already been at this game month or if you ride a line that you have already ridden this game month, the maps that you will find will not be different than the ones that were there last time you were there.
