NOOOO! That idea is not dead. Its an awesome idea. Its better than this one...lol. Its actually just so good, that it opens it up for a plethora of different ideas and ways to implement it, which mean it will be awesome, just a little messier deciding what would be best. If you like that other idea Andy, what might be helpful is asking lack, what would be possible/easiest for him, so we can perhaps discuss the reasonable ways of doing it, and then narrow down which will affect the actual game play best....

But ill put some more thought into this one. I typed it a second after conception...i mean..conception of the idea.

Hopefully some can help us narrow this one down to something useful, and worth coding. Maybe someone who does the programming can suggest what is possible. Some of the ideas for this seemed unlikely.

Such as, spoils lighting one region of no fog ie... unfogging all ajacent territories of that teritory, so youd essentially have little flowers of no fog on the board by the end.

My guess is though, one territory unfogged, coupled with the flat or escalating, or no bonus spoils would be the easiest variation to code, and the combination of spoil combinations would make it the most simple to use and understand. Instead of getting +2 armies for holding a region spoil, you get to see the spot. If you or your team own it...too bad, just like nuclear. Unlike nuclear though, you still get the bonus armies from the card.

It makes it not as powerful, but the easiest to code, and the simplest to understand and implement, I would think??

Right now most of the additions to this seem to end up in the same area.

the whole lighting up the board for seconds or rounds is interesting, but I dont see how it wouldnt just make the game totally unfog after a while, so I personally, dont see how it would work... Besides, if you cash the spoils, then take a quick screenshot with bob...you get a pic for the duration of the game, so its just too powerful.

I think the only reasonable options would be, unfog one territory, or unfog a group of territories, and one territory is easier, and just makes sense. I suspect it isnt a complete impossibility either. Essentially, he would take the code for nuclear, and change it to unfogging the region, not killing it, and then adjust escalating and flat rate, to not give +2 bonus, but just unfog the areas for that one player.

Players already get unfogged areas for reasons on the map, so without knowing better, it technically should be possible??

and anti fog is a good description, but a stupid name for it. I think someone said Clear fog, which is immediately more descriptive, if not as flashy.

Spoils:

Clear fog
Flat rate Clear fog
Escalating Clear fog

or

Clear fog No bonus
Clear fog Flat rate
Clear fog Escalating

The biggest downside, is its essentially one option, but has three names. There may be an easier way, but the no spoils option, makes it more difficult.

I dont think theres any question it would be a fun little addition to the spoils options. I think the only question may be priority, and feasibility. And, those ninja spoils*cough* conquer spoils are definitely a more unique style of play, and I myself would be more interested to see them.

What would be truly ideal, is if we could combine nuclear with flat rate and escalating
this one with flat rate and escalating(which is absolutely necessary)
and ninja spoils with flat rate and escalating too(if possible)

Because its the combinations of these spoils working together that will make the gameplay novel I think. Alone they make all the games no card games, and it means the power of the spoils is typically so small, that playing escalating, is still more challenging. But, combining them, makes a new frontier of strategy, combined with the many objective boards, and maps, that I can only instinctively imagine will create some strategies, that were never dreamed of before.

Ok....I summarize this in my original post. Unless any complain, Ive convinced myself the one territory is the way to go.
By all means if theres a better idea throw it out there still

qwerts version is the same version I suggested in the first place. I just had other options in there. I agree the name is much better, and that of the choices, its the best option.

You mean it got refined until it no longer needed any posts - and then disappeared from the beginning of this forum due to lack of integration?

Sounds like a great idea maybe the spoils you get take the fog off the card you have but only for you whilst you hold it, this gives you a planning advantage so that from your first spoil you can plan the next 3 -4 rounds for your kill with good deployments, but also knowing someone else can see territories that they are not boardering with will add that extra safety dimension. I know a lot of 8 player fog games i play i tend to block a player in where i can from round 1 this element will make me aware others could see it.

Great you implement mine sugestion =D>

but i must say that these its bad.
Also, the spoils will be in the log. You will often have to keep away from those spots with stacks, to keep them hidden, so it will most definitely change game play on both sides.

I still think that only you can know what territory its permanent clear of fog,and these will be same for all players.Also all territory who is starting,will be foggy when you lost in game,because they not cleared of fog,and these mean that territory who you hold,become permanent unfogg when you use cards.

I dont want to be pettty here, but all you did was suggest what one of the suggestions were in the first place, unless of course you suggested this at some other time, in another suggested. What you suggested, was the option that was the most likely, but some other options were suggested along with it as well, again, unless there is another thread where you suggested clear fog spoils, in which case, you clearly developed the idea. I, as usual, did no such search before this suggestion. If there is a thread, technically, this should just be linked to it, though this one is getting close to refined....I hope.

your naming of it however, was more..."clear" and that I did use. Anti-fog sounds cooler, but clear fog simply makes so much sense it has to be used.

I dont understand fully what you mean by the last part, but to clarify, if you cash spoils on clear fog option. the log will list what regions you held, as it always does, and that will inform players of what sites you can see, if they want to rifle through the log. If there is a way to hide that info as well, that would be great too.

I doubt this would be possible. I think the regions would simply have to become "clear" after you cash the spoils, in exactly the same way the region becomes "nuked" after cashing spoils.

You understand correct- need someon to give answer on that. Hide territory names after use a card,will great addition to these sugestion.

It definitely could be. this one could use some discussion. On the one hand, it makes the spoils more important, but at the other, knowing what areas someone can see, is a positive thing too, because it requires you to avoid those areas, which in a way, can add to the fun...

I could argue it either way. My instinct would be knowing what areas were fogged would be better in the long run. But the idea of having invisible spy's is nice too.

Definitely agree with Qwery...

With the cards in the log option - then BOB would be able to read it all up and tell you who can see what...

Not knowing what people can see would be ace.
