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.

2012-09-12 02:28:19 - ODWO: I noticed that yellow and Pink play on Teams together ... and I'm thinking Yellow gave him the password? (it wasn't me - and for just that reason too) Let's keep it fair guys.
2012-09-12 05:01:49 - VioIet: gla!

2012-09-15 19:52:34 - ViperOverLord: GL
2012-09-15 19:52:59 - ViperOverLord: Dude__ you're stretching red
2012-09-15 19:53:25 - ViperOverLord: I barely recognize yellow's sn and I don't remember even playing a team game with him
2012-09-15 19:55:42 - ViperOverLord: Yup (checked) __ never played a team game with him, and only played 1 non battle royale game with him. But thanks for dragging our names through the mud
2012-09-15 19:55:47 - ViperOverLord: Appreciate it
2012-09-15 19:55:54 - ViperOverLord: Glad you could invite me here for that
2012-09-15 19:56:33 - ViperOverLord: And I didn't give yellow (who I dont even really know) the pw; so thanks for that accuastion too
2012-09-15 19:56:44 - ViperOverLord: baseless accuastion*
2012-09-15 19:57:21 - ViperOverLord: Or yellow didn't give it to me that is
2012-09-15 19:57:25 - ViperOverLord: You sent me a pm dude
2012-09-15 19:58:13 - ViperOverLord: Sat Sep 08, 2012 5:31 pm - check your box
2012-09-16 07:30:10 - Donelladan: it was meant for ancessus and me, i think ODWO just copied the message from another game where we are yellow and pink :p
2012-09-16 18:06:15 - ViperOverLord: Ah__
2012-09-16 19:35:43 - VioIet: that wasn't really nice ODWO
2012-09-16 19:35:54 - VioIet: he should at least apologize for his mistake, and not ignore Viper
2012-09-16 19:36:22 - VioIet: also, he could've pm'd an issue like that, and not have brought it to the game chat
2012-09-17 14:08:31 - ODWO: HA!@ I'm just now seeing this ... and yes, it was for Don and Ances.
2012-09-17 14:10:20 - ODWO: Violet ... I was thinking of the other players and if they "might be" hurt in the game by such... not me.
2012-09-17 14:12:37 - ODWO: And yes, both were those colors in a differnet game. Either way, I'm fine wiht Don and Anc. playing. I think they're playing without silent partnering. And Violet, if you ever need to PM me ... feel free to do so. ;)
2012-09-17 14:14:00 - ODWO: I think Viper saw what Don said ... no one was ignoring anyone. Unless they really wanted my attention that badly. I do not take sides in others arguments.
2012-09-17 14:16:57 - ODWO: I just like a FAIR Game. (and again for whomever) I'm quite OK with Don and Anc. playing singles. If anyone thinks I need to keep talking about this ... feel free to let me know .. or even PM me, as Violet suggested. It was all for the players ...
2012-09-17 14:17:33 - ODWO: ... not for spite or other motives.
2012-09-19 05:32:40 - VioIet: I'm sorry ODWO. If I called you out, I should've called Don out as well. But I was honestly confused by the whole thing.
2012-09-19 05:33:21 - VioIet: I've pm'd you before and found you to be quite nice. Hope we will play many future games.
2012-09-19 13:55:23 - ODWO: np. :) Donelladan and I had PM's each other after my post.... "I should've" posted the results that I was just making sure "of things." Hopefully, everyone understands . From now on, I'll also keep my thoughts to myself (original post by me here)
2012-09-20 06:35:43 - Donelladan: np for my side, and I am sorry i should have asked u before inviting ancessus
2012-09-29 01:06:10 - ViperOverLord: GG ALL
2012-09-29 03:12:46 - ODWO: well done!
