This new random map script is based on our recent release, The Flush, but introduces a new variation of Regicide to play on this or other maps. Other Regicide variations have been released in the past but this is different. In the Regicide setting, this map script includes a watch tower and 3 houses instead of a castle to promote the possibility of Feudal Age combat. But the big difference is that instead of a king, you start with 5 KINGS! This allows for a wide variety of new strategies, including early scouting with some of your kings, garrisoning some in different structures, garrisoning some with your allies. You are not eliminated from the game until all 5 kings are eliminated. Think of it as having to get rid of the whole royal family before winning!
On other than Regicide setting, the map script plays exactly the same as The Flush. The basic script, The Flush, was designed for experienced or better players. This map makes flushing easier than on Arabia, and early warfare is the only good option on this map. Why?

For those who want to try this new "Royal Flush" Regicide style on a less difficult map, we have added this Regicide style to our MFO@RandomArabia and MFO@RandomYucatan maps (and removed the frozen, all snow terrains for those who don't like it). These are designated with a "RF" after the name, and included also in this zipped file.
