Dvorak - Liberation

You know how it is sometimes. You're rummaging around on your hard-drive, and you find an old Notepad file from years ago, and you wonder what it is and why you even have it. Well, this post is one of those. It's a file I found relating to a card-game called Dvorak. Dvorak is one of those games that the players can either make up as they go along, or pre-design decks designed to work with a simple set of base rules. Anyone who's player 1001 Bank White Cards will know the drill

Well, the file I found contained notes for a Dvorak deck based on the South American Wars of Liberation.

Now, I'm pretty sure I didn't write it. Some of the wording isn't my style at all. But I have no idea where I got it from. So I present it to you pretty much as I found it, on the hope that either someone will recognise it, or that they may feel inspired to run with it and make a deck. Indeed I may do it myself sometime. It looks like that, with a little bit of tweaking, a fairly interesting two- or three-player game could be created here.
