The mid war card South African Unrest seemed perfectly clear to me, until I read the Twilight Strategy article on it. How, exactly, can the event be played?
South African Unrest reads:
USSR either adds 2 Influence in South Africa or adds 1 influence in South Africa and 2 Influence in any countries adjacent to South Africa.
The confusion comes in from the Twilight Strategy article:
Despite a possible interpretation of the event’s text otherwise, you cannot use this for 1 in Angola and 1 in Botswana: it has to be 1 in South Africa plus 2 in Angola or 2 in Botswana.
Prior to reading Twilight Strategy I thought the following 4 options could be played:
- Place 2 Influence in South Africa.
- Place 1 Influence in South Africa, and 2 Influence in Angola.
- Place 1 Influence in South Africa, and 2 Influence in Botswana.
- Place 1 Influence in South Africa, 1 Influence in Angola, and 1 Influence in Botswana.
I think the Twilight Strategy note is saying that #4 is out. Is that right? If that was so, shouldn't the card read "In any one country adjacent to South Africa"?
