I'm surprised I haven't seen any comments on the lack of supplements again, for 2017. Maps are a big part of geography and there have been several changes that haven't been addressed as supplements this century. And from what I see, a lot of the younger generations don't know where a lot of countries or even States are located. It's over time to update continental maps for Europe, Africa, and Asia, and a World map that isn't so dark colored for countries like the one they include for new members.
You are absolutely correct Harold on your assertion about some "update" maps are in order and far past due !
Now that you mention it, yeah, I guess it's surprising Phil or Tom didn't mention the lack of map supplements this year (there was one? perforated poster though, right?).
There were 2: Vikings, and History of Stadiums.
The last time there was only 2 yearly supplements was way back in 1935. 1934 and 1931 had only 1 supplement.....
