Looking at what photos I can find of the game, it looks like the buildings and vehicles are all parallelograms. Trapezoids is also accurate, but paralellogram would seem to be more accurate. Could someone more familiar with the game confirm (and update the article if appropriate)? Alan De Smet | Talk 07:17, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

I try and base my wiki pages on actual contemporary source material - the magazine articles I've found tend to use "trapezoid" in describing the buildings. I believe that term is also used in the actual game manual. I suspect hard core fans of the game would be more used to that term. However, once I get some scans done of the mapboard, I can mention that they are really parallelograms, perhaps in an image caption?? Thanks for fixing the bolding on the introductory use of the game title - I'm still new to some of the formatting conventions.Michael Dorosh 15:36, 29 December 2005 (UTC)

Okay, I've made mention that the shapes are actually parallelograms - good catch. However, I continue to use "trapezoid" later on - mainly because you can use it in the following sense

"...buildings in the new Edition were also trapezoidal in shape..."

Whereas "parallelogram" is harder to get to flow in the text when used in that situation...Michael Dorosh 15:45, 29 December 2005 (UTC)
