in GoldBox titles you either have 'the' map (full map) or no map AFAIR ...
I never have either, but heard a lot about the game as I was doing my research for Dungeons & Desktops. I don't know if the Wizard's Crown guys actually played it or not, but it is definitely the same concept--and I'm not aware of anything like this earlier, though there were surely some strategy games with something similar. I agree with you about the awful automap in the Gold Box games. I never used it! I did find the official cluebooks very, very nice, though.
