Fog of War
Slots Per Player
In a standard game each player fends for himself and there is only one winner.
Regions are randomly distributed at the start of the game and each region starts with three troops.
A player is selected at random to go first and then subsequent players follow in turn. During a team game the play order alternates between the teams.
At the end of your turn if you have conquered at least one region you get 'spoils.' Once you have three of the same color (or three different) these can be traded in at the start of your turn for bonus troops. Escalating Spoils indicates that each set traded in will be worth more than the previous. The first set is worth 4 bonus troops. Then 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 etc. If you own any of the regions that you trade in you get two bonus troops on those regions.
At the end of your turn you can reinforce once from one region to another (they must be connected by regions that you own).
Fog of War
Fog of War masks enemy positions that are not adjacent to your forces (or your team's forces). It also masks region and zone names in the log
You can only assault from regions held since the start of your turn. If you conquer a region during your turn you cannot assault from it until your next turn.
With round limits, the game will automatically finish at the end of the specified round. The winner will be the surviving player with the most troops.
Each player has up to 24 hours to complete a turn. You will get an email notification when it is your turn to play.
42 Territories, 6 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2012-02-05 21:21:04 - rutty: what happened blue? how come your so weak? did someone take a stack of yours?
2012-02-06 07:51:13 - rutty: hopeless your not going to take oz in a escalating game are you?
2012-02-06 21:49:07 - general T: lost all 9 against 2 yellow. thanks for the concern, i appreciate it....
2012-02-07 13:36:12 - rutty: hopeless why are you atacking my hong kong stack? If you want to be in hong kong you only have to ask and i'll move
2012-02-07 14:10:42 - hopeless1: I will politely decline to answer your question, since I wouldn't want to reveal anything about my strategy. I'm not going to ask you to move. I think that would be inappropriate.
2012-02-07 16:40:37 - rutty: to politely ask someone in the knowledge that they may not do what you ask is not inappropriate and it can save heavy losses on both sides
2012-02-07 19:21:12 - hopeless1: That's fine then, but I wouldn't feel comfortable entering into any agreement.
2012-02-07 20:59:52 - rutty: that does you credit
2012-02-08 13:39:12 - rutty: please stop stack nibbling! it's a bad tactic! and really anoying! either take out a stack completely or leave it alone.
2012-02-08 13:39:48 - rutty: taking stacks out completely is only a valid tactic later in the game.
2012-02-08 13:43:56 - rutty: if you need to be in hong kong for some reason make room for me to leave it by stacking novo or manila
2012-02-11 04:31:40 - hopeless1: Guess I'm not in on the joke
