Some of the names are very hard to read, is there a bigger version of the map anywhere?

edit: http://www.variantbank.org/results/rule ... ericas.gif easier to read :)

Sorry. My photobucket account is stubborn...next season the maps will be bigger...

Do you want me to make some of the names larger? For the small provinces, that's not possible, I'm afraid.

You can change the size? Why not the name!

Guys, I looked on the Variant bank website (see abbreviations link for War of Americas) and it seems to be a whole lot of use when trying to see what your doing and where your moving! Hope that helps :)

Shouldnt it be june 13? I must confess the time thing is messing my head up a little. But I am in Sweden and right now its like 1 pm (or 13:07 to be exact). Its saturday and its june 12. So even though there is a time difference sunday would be june 13 or am I even more confused then i first thought?
