Description

My first map, which is based in the 4th Largest Continent, South America.
Though Central America is very protected (It's bonuses reflect this) it is also isolated from the rest of the map and its expansion is limited. On the other hand starting in Brazil is very open to attack but the bonuses are better per territory. The South is also well protected but not as protected as Central America and again its bonuses reflect this.
I recommend this map for 3 vs 3 and other team-games. In team games whoever gets hold of the 3 key areas (Brazil, Central America and South) wins.
- Superbonus's have been added, but kept at 0, so they do not affect normal games but game creators can chose to activate them if they wish. If you wish to activate them, here is a recommended template:

I recommend using the 'Warlords' Distribution, for most games.
I also like getting suggestions or feedback!
Enjoy! - Major Risk

Review by Aziridine on 9/19/2012.
Excellent map! Unlike some of the more popular maps, virtually the entire map is strategically useful, which affords tremendous scope for creative picks and strategy. However, I think the larger bonuses in Central America are a little *too* weak despite their safety. I would suggest tweaking the bonus values as follows:
1. Make Guatemala and Eastern Cuba both worth 4.
2. Flip the values of Panama and Western Colombia to 5 and 4 respectively.
3. Make Southern Chile worth 1 - it's relatively safe and doesn't deserve to be the only two-territory bonus worth 2.
Even as it is though, one of the very best maps around.
Response by map creator Major Risk on 4/7/2013
I have taken much of what you have said, and updated the map. At the time of writing, the update is 'Pending Public'.
- Panama is now 5 and Western Colombia 4, instead of 4 and 5 respectively.
- Eastern Cuba is now 4 instead of 3. However I don't feel Guatemala is a 4 bonus, due to the safety of it and the two 1 bonus's nearby it.
- Southern Chile has been kept at 2, to add dynamics to the gameplay, as it gives a good place to start for the south, where it is hard and slow to expand from. (You often meet resistance early on)
- Superbonus's have also been added, but kept at 0, so they do not affect normal games, game creators can chose to activate them if they wish, and as soon as the new version is public, a template of the recommended superbonus amounts will be linked in the map description.
- Finally I have also corrected many spelling mistakes, and touched up some aesthetics of the sea, and font used in the writing.
Thanks for your input! Enjoy!

Review by Commander C {Warlighter} on 6/27/2012.
Good map. Just don't always choose S South America, Brazil, and the Carribean or you might be surrounded. It's interesting and with good strategy, you can do well with good use of bonuses.

Review by Nathan on 9/26/2014.
Fun map and nicely done, but I see no reason for the regional imbalance. Some bonus regions grant armies at a 1:1 ratio (Amazonas), while some are at a 1:2 ratio (Guatemala). I recommend players manually balance the bonuses.

A nicely sized, accurate map overall and one of the best South America maps I've seen. It did a decent job of covering the Caribbean. Overall a good map!

Review by Dublin Warrior on 11/3/2015.
I give it four stars out of five.
I won my favorite game here in 13 turns,
and 4 stars is the highest rating that I give out for most anything.
Excellent job! :)

Review by sasa on 7/6/2017.
I like blind concept, many cards.
I do not like enforcing every region separately. In the late game it is annoying.

Review by Amazonian Monster on 8/3/2017.
Nice map, but there is a bug on Android: both sides of the map can't be seen. In fact, some territories in Central América can't be seen by the android player.

The default initial distribution in multiplayer is unplayable. I strongly advice to customize it before starting the game.
