I've done it now, whoo boy!

So I went to the South America section and I see these folks in a land dispute and I think "Hey, there is some good stuff here."

So I claimed all of the Andes and Rainforests for the PacNW. Familiar territory I figure, so the ease of taking it should be good, with moderate backup.

Salutations from the Antipodes, oh evil one!

Now that you have claimed all our interesting features for the PNW, could you please send us some rain? We could do with it down under.

So, does this mean we can give parts of the Pacific NW away in trade? Thinking . . . Lynnwood for Mendocino . . . Kauai for Kent . . .

I think that in order to "claim" a territory you have to physically be there and show proof. I could "claim" New England, but if I've never been there what's the point. I think that there should be a picture of you standing next to a sign or a landmark in order to stake a claim.

Are there any pictures with you in them? We need verification if we're going to hand over two countries to you.

YOU are going to hand over the countries to ME? I thought I was claiming them for the NW!

But, if you insist: (I'm the one getting, not giving, the foot massage.)
