Fog of War
Slots Per Player
In a terminator game you get points for the players that you eliminate.
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.
Each player has up to 24 hours to complete a turn. You will get an email notification when it is your turn to play.

2012-06-25 12:47:08 - nolefan5311: pink, no reason to keep killing my regions off when i'm one of the weakest out there
2012-06-25 16:11:16 - HLLYHWH: I dont know what you are talking about blue. I have only took regions with 1 for a card. That is generally not seen as needless attacks. People share card spots all the time. And I consider a game like this as about even.
2012-06-25 20:46:31 - nolefan5311: then maybe crazy did it...i had a small stack in NE Canada that's not there anymore
2012-06-26 01:58:26 - ender516: Read the log: yellow took Quebec, pink took Ottawa.
