OK I got all information from the following discussion in livechat:
06:22:16 ‹DawudBeale› Hi everyone, can someone explain spoils to me?
06:22:30 ‹Razorvich› sure
06:22:50 ‹Razorvich› hang on a dec...will get a link
06:23:11 ‹DawudBeale› I already read the instructions but didnt find them very clear
06:23:27 ‹Razorvich› oh ok
06:24:23 ‹DawudBeale› If I have the property mentioned in the card, how do I play the card?
06:24:58 ‹Razorvich› go to your private chat tab mate i will "attempt" to answer all questions
06:25:15 ‹Bruceswar› here is a quick break down
06:25:24 ‹Bruceswar› escalating means the spoils go up each time
06:25:31 ‹Bruceswar› flat rate... the colors stay the same..
06:25:38 ‹Bruceswar› nukes...
06:25:46 ‹Bruceswar› means you nuke each region you cash
06:26:08 ‹Bruceswar› to cash a set you need 3 of the same color or 1 of each color
06:26:21 ‹DawudBeale› how many colours are there?
06:26:28 ‹Razorvich› 3
06:26:46 ‹DawudBeale› and what about if I own a region that is named in the card and it has a square bracket?
06:26:49 ‹Bruceswar› red = 4
06:26:54 ‹Bruceswar› blue = 8
06:26:57 ‹Bruceswar› green = 6
06:27:01 ‹Bruceswar› mixed = 10
06:27:04 ‹Bruceswar› in flat rate
06:27:18 ‹Bruceswar› if you own that region you cash
06:27:20 ‹Bruceswar› you get a plus 2
06:27:24 ‹Bruceswar› unless nukes
06:27:25 ‹Razorvich› you scream "WOOHOO"
06:27:29 ‹Bruceswar› then it goes to a nuetral one
06:27:32 ‹Bruceswar› lol
06:28:11 ‹DawudBeale› ok so owning that property you only get two troops?
06:28:19 ‹DawudBeale› how do you use your cards?
06:28:29 ‹Bruceswar› you get + 2 on that region
06:28:40 ‹Bruceswar› then whatever the set you cash is worth
06:28:48 ‹Bruceswar› once you get 3 of the same color or mixed
06:28:53 ‹Bruceswar› it will ask you if you want to cash
06:28:54 ‹Bruceswar› or wait
06:28:59 ‹DawudBeale› razorvich sorry I just realised you send me a private chat. sorry I am new to the interface
06:29:25 ‹DawudBeale› ok so why last move did it not ask me?
06:29:25 ‹Razorvich› all good mate....bruce is on a roll here
06:29:34 ‹Bruceswar› looking now
06:29:41 ‹DawudBeale› http://www.conquerclub.com/gam...2655201
06:29:58 ‹DawudBeale› I have alcer de sal and its in brackets but I never got asked about adding troops
06:30:25 ‹Bruceswar› you now have 3 cards
06:30:27 ‹Bruceswar› if you have a set
06:30:31 ‹Bruceswar› then you can cash
06:30:31 ‹Razorvich› happens automaticly
06:30:36 ‹Bruceswar› it will not give you the bonus
06:30:42 ‹Bruceswar› until you cash
06:30:42 ‹Razorvich› next turn mate
06:30:54 ‹DawudBeale› but I had the card last turn and it never asked me
06:31:13 ‹DawudBeale› hangon. Are you saying I can only get the two troops for that property if I use all 3 cards?
06:31:14 ‹Razorvich› you may not have had a set
06:31:23 ‹Razorvich› what cards do you have?
06:31:27 ‹Bruceswar› yes
06:31:30 ‹Bruceswar› that is correct
06:31:33 ‹DawudBeale› so its just an extra bonus basically
06:31:37 ‹Bruceswar› when you cash a set
06:31:40 ‹Bruceswar› that is when you get +2
06:31:43 ‹Bruceswar› yes indeed
06:31:45 ‹Bruceswar› that is correct
06:31:47 ‹Bruceswar› extra bonus
06:31:49 ‹DawudBeale› and at what point will it ask me?
06:31:57 ‹DawudBeale› after assaults, during or before?
06:32:02 ‹Razorvich› whenever you can cash
06:32:11 ‹Razorvich› at the start of your turn
06:32:19 ‹Bruceswar› before you delpoy men
06:32:26 ‹DawudBeale› ah ok
