For land-based wargaming, central tabletop rivers only really work if there's one or more crossing points, so that element's probably of greater significance than the actual line of the river. I'd suggest keeping the watercourse line fairly simple though, given that any very meandering course in real-world terms would mean small lakes and marshes alongside, where no commander with good sense would choose to fight.

If I were setting up a miniatures battle, with the set on areas being about a foot or so from each of the long edges, I would definitely use map #3. I would have at least two fords or bridges. If it were eight feet wide, I would use a bridge and two fords.
What if you did a map with enough sections to cover an area twelve feet long? The course of the river could vary over the twelve feet. A customer could vary the number of 6 foot fields she/he could use, and the course of the river, by selecting which section of the 12 foot map to print out.
If you made the two ends of the twelve foot map geomorphic, you could make the possibilities almost infinite!
And if you put a half twist in it, you could make it a moebius map!
Have fun! Steve

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.
