    Rules for South American Supremacy Variant:

    1. The Starting Year is 1835, though the map represents no exact period in time. Rather, the map and the variant as a whole are a composite of 19th century South America.

    2. Starting Positions:

    Chile: F Val, A San
    Argentina: F BAs, A Cor, A Sal
    Brasil: F SaP, A Rio, F Slv, A Man
    Bolivia: F Ant, A LaP
    Colombia: F Cal, F Car, A Bog
    Paraguay: A Asu, A Con
    Peru: F Lim, A Tru
    Venezuela: F Mar, A Ccs.

    3. The Andes Mountains: Indicated by a darkened border, separating the western ridge of the continent from the interior. Units may not cross the Andes Mountains (like Switzerland) except at "passes," marked on the map by two small parallel lines with a normal border between them. The Andes Mountains form the border between Cali and Popayan, and stretch all the way south to separate Punta Arenas from Patagonia.

    4. Punta Arenas/Tierra Del Fuego:

    An army or a fleet may enter either of these territories, OR a fleet may pass directly from the Golfo de San Jorge to the South Pacific Ocean.

    Adjacencies in the region are as follows:

    GSJ borders TdF, Pat, ScS, Mal, and SPO via Magellan. (NOT PAs)
    TdF borders PAs, GSJ, Pat, ScS, SPO.
    PAs borders TdF, SPO, and Ara. (NOT Pat, because of the Andes, and NOT GSJ)
    SPO borders PAs, Ara, San, Val, Jua, GdG, ScS, TdF, and GSJ

    5. Rivers: Very simple. The Amazon and Parana rivers are navigable by fleets. They are NOT separate bodies of water themselves. This means that fleets can move up and along these river borders just like fleets on coastlines can. For example, a fleet could on subsequent turns move from RdP to BAs to SaF to Crt to Asu to Mis to Prn, etc. etc. No special order format is needed. Support operates as normal, though it should be noted that fleets CANNOT support actions involving inland territories while on a river. Just as a Fleet in Belgium could not support an Army Burgundy into Ruhr, neither could a Fleet Santa Fe support an Army Cordoba into Rosario. Also, fleets may not convoy while on a river (just like fleets on a coastal territory may not convoy in standard.)

    6. British, French, and Dutch Guyana: European controlled territories that are impassable like Switzerland.

    7. Victory conditions (20 SCs), turn movement, and all other aspects of SAS conform to Standard in every way.

                          The government of Peru would like to apologize for the autrocious display of favoritism displayed by fellow Latinos in Honduras last night. It was just deplorable how the game was unjustly called in order to prevent the Capitalistic Americans from CRUSHING the hopeless Hondurans. Again, let us reitterate; Viva Estados Unitos!!!! 2-1 USA! USA! USA!

                            You are real brave spouting off **** from behind a mountain range you Chili Dork. I now don't have to worry about who I am going to crush, get it, crushed chili peppers, or do you need me to spell out for your 8th grade education.
