The original Boxy War was created in late 2005 by BinarySpike.  The base design was fundamentally different than the latest incarnation of Boxy War, along with significantly different corners and the lack of the SW flag.  Several months later, development of the map took on a new beginning by [[User:A Meteorite|A Meteorite]] and [[User:TD-Linux|TD-Linux]], and the previous map was totally scrapped – leaving only some of the basic principles in place.

In July of 2006, pyramids around the Geno area were replaced with a clear mesh containing the Boxy War logo along with the removal of bad flags from the middle, replacing them with OO flags.  Blue beams known as plasma forks were also added to the top section, turning you tank into "A hearty soup of ions" when touched.

In the Fall of 2006, L flags and a new spawn zone was added to each side of the base due to the challenge of exiting base when on the losing team.

In late 2006 or early 2007, the map went through its biggest change.  OO flags around geno were replaced with obesity flags.  These flags could only be removed by leaving the middle section.  MQ flags were added on the roof of each castle.  Geno was given unlimited shots, but only allowed one kill.  Laser was limited to 100 kills. These changes to the map, along with a brand new 4 team CTF map ([[Missile War]]), caused the decline of the once popular map.

The changes were reversed after about one month, keeping the MQ flags though, but by this time, Boxy War was losing popularity.
