    Default Princess Bride Map

    I'm watching The Princess Bride and wondering if anyone created a map trying to recreate all the bits from the movie.

    Maybe that would make a good map challenge.

    There is a Princess Bride video game, which contains a map.

    No idea if the game's any good, but the map looks interesting.

    Google-Fu.........HEEEEEE-YAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!

    There is this link (which has a ton of Fantasy maps by the way): http://www.woodge.com/books/fmaps.html
    Princess Bride here: http://www.woodge.com/books/maps/map_princess_bride.jpg

    Unfortunately, the BIGGEST map I could find via Google's Image Search seems to no longer be available and is a two page black & White map, Fifth across the top: http://www.google.ca/images?hl=en&so...=&oq=&gs_rfai=

    That (the "game map") is a reproduction of the map in the copy of the book that I have, published in 1987 (17th printing), with some cross-promotion with the movie. Given that there is no separate credit or copyright for the map, I suspect that it was William Goldman's work.
