Didn't really get a chance to look at the rules for this variant when it was up, but I have been working on my own. And if I know how to make a map I could post here and how to colour and carve it, I'd put one up.

Diplomacy U.S.A.

There shall be seven starting powers:
1. New England
• Maine – Army
• Mass – Fleet
• New Hampshire – Army

2. The Union
• Penn – Fleet
• Maryland – Army
• Virginia – Fleet

3. The South
• Florida – Army
• Georgia – Fleet
• Alabama – Army

4. The Heartland
• Detroit – Army
• Chicago – Fleet
• Indiana – Army

5. Texas
• El Paso – Army
• Dallas – Army
• Houston – Fleet

6. Mid West
• Minnesota – Fleet
• North Dakota – Army
• Nebraska – Army

7. California
• San Francisco – Army
• Las Vegas – Army
• Los Angles - Fleet



All territories correspond to state names EXCEPT in the following places:
• California broken into San Francisco, Southern California, and Los Angles
• Nevada broken into Nevada and North Nevada
• Texas broken into North Texas, El Paso, Houston, and Dallas
• Louisiana broken into New Orleans and Louisiana
• Illinois broken into Illinois and Chicago
• Michigan broken into Michigan, North Michigan, and Detroit
• New York broken into Upstate New York and New York City
• Quebec broken into Gaspe, Townships, Montreal and Northern Quebec
• Ontario broken into Toronto, Southern Ontario, and Northern Ontario
• Nova Scotia to be called Halifax


Mississippi River is navigable.
A fleet passing along the Mississippi River must land in a territory adjacent to the one it just left. These territories include: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and New Orleans.

The Ohio River is navigable. The territories accessible are: Illinois, Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio. Note that a fleet entering Ohio from the southwest (Indiana or Kentucky) cannot exit Ohio via Lake Erie.

The St. Lawrence River is navigable. Territories bordering the St. Lawrence are: North Quebec, The Townships, Montreal, Toronto, and Upstate New York. Moving between the lakes is a simple move. Ie Lake Erie TO Lake Huron.

Geographic Notes of consequence:
• Rhode Island is part of Connecticut.
• Delaware is a part of Maryland.
• A unit in one of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado or Utah may move to any of those territories. This diagonal move is unique to this location on the board.

Thoughts? I have a paper map all carved up, but not sure how to post one...

Thank you Dar Krum, but this forum was made for the game I had created, although it can be used afterward for your game.

Wow! Really sorry about that guys. When I saw nothing in this forum I thought I'd put some stuff up. I certainly did not mean to step on any toes with this. Please consider all the stuff I have posted as simply suggestions for discussion AFTER completion of this game. Again, no slight intended whatsoever.

Best of luck to all involved and have fun.

suggestion: Would gameplay be improved if the rio grande was accessible?
