by Philippe Janssens
1. The rules of Diplomacy apply except for the modifications
2. The map shows South America as it was in 1821. Bolivar has just created Greater Columbia; Chile has been independent for
3 years and Argentina for 10 years; the Loyalists still hold High-Peru and a
part of the Viceroyalty of the Plate, future Bolivia; they are taken in charge
of by Bolivia in the north and San Martin in the south; whereas Brazil is just
about to become the Brazilian Empire under Pedro I.
Bolivar, President of Greater Columbia. F(Caracas), A(Bogota), A(Selva).
San Martin, Argentinian General. A(Mendoza), A(Cordoba), A(Buenos Aires), F(Rio de la Plata) [see rule 7]
Pezuela, Viceroy of Peru. F(Lima), A(Cusco), A(La Plata).
Jean VI, King of Portugal (exiled in Brazil). F(Belem), F(Bahia), A(Santos).

4. Victory Conditions
The winner is either:
(A) The Bolivarian Objective: The player who can
“control” Greater Columbia, the Viceroyalties of Peru, Brazil, Chile,
Argentina and Paraguay. In order to
achieve this “control” the player must possess the original 3 home centres
of each of these powers as well as Paraguay, a total of 16 supply centres; or
(B) 20 supply centres of any kind.
5. Activable Home Centres
Four powers possess an activable
supply centre which when occupied, become home supply centres. These are Panama (Columbia), Potosi (Peru), Porto Alegre (Brazil) and Ile
6. When a player controls the 3 original home supply centres of
a country required for victory under the Bolivarian objective, or Paraguay, he
can build in those centres as if they were his home centres.
7. Buenos Aires
The player who owns Buenos Aires
(Argentina initially) has at the same time a fleet which can only be built at
Rio de la Plata. If a player loses
control of Buenos Aires he automatically loses the fleet no matter where it is.
Fleets may navigate land provinces by using a river. A fleet can control a land province of which one of the borders is a
river (e.g. Paraguay, Selva and New Grenada). Thus, for example, Bolivia could build a fleet at Selva. Note that F(Ria)-Sel is illegal, whereas F(Ria)-Rim; F(Rim)-Sel is legal.
provinces have two coasts: Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Costa Rica,
Panama, Bogota, Chubut and Patagonia Septentr. The Panama Canal will not be
built for another 67 years!
Certain areas of the Andes chain
are impassable in the Autumn season. These
areas consist of the mountains which separate Lima and Titicana from Cusco and
Potosi, and those separating Autofagasta and Santiago from Tucuman and Mendoza.
