Are you sure?  I mean, what about a map shaped like:

----------------------------
|            |             |
|            |             |
|            |             |
|            |             |
|            |-------------|
|            |             |
|            |             |
|            |             |
|            |             |
----------------------------

Or do maps only count if they have at least four pieces...;-)
