Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In a terminator game you get points for the players that you eliminate.
With manual initial troops, each region is initially populated with 1 troop and during the first round of the game players deploy the rest wherever they see fit. During this first round, you cannot see your opponents' deployments and all players can play simultaneously.
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. A set of three reds is worth four bonus troops. Three greens is worth six and three blues is worth 8. A set of three different colors is worth ten bonus troops. 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 as many times as you like between regions that are connected.
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.
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2012-09-22 14:04:41 - anonymus: ok gl everyone i have no clue how to play this, should be a fun experiment lasting a year or so ;)
2012-09-22 23:23:32 - nvrijn: Red ... a lot less than that for us, unless we each go our separate ways :-)
2012-09-22 23:30:03 - anonymus: ok you go right i go left
2012-09-23 03:11:15 - Geoff_with_a_G: roger that
2012-09-26 11:43:14 - anonymus: i will not hit your sdt. GEOFF i just make sure you dont hit me from there..
2012-09-26 11:43:51 - anonymus: or atleast i will not hit it until it makes sense to hit it and that should take a couple of turns..
2012-09-26 11:44:30 - anonymus: (just so we are clear and i dont get blamed for cheap tactics when it comes time to do it, but it is far away i promise, lol)
2012-09-27 18:48:16 - boingboingdaniel: and i won't hit you red
2012-09-29 09:26:15 - anonymus: ok cool blue give me 1 turn heads up before you do then..
2012-10-01 08:35:15 - nvrijn: Red ... I assume we are still cool too
2012-10-01 10:56:48 - anonymus: yeah lets give eachother 1 turns notice aswell no worries i just wanted to have a look from paras..
2012-10-02 13:36:33 - steggy15: i'm not planning on going any further your way for awhile green
2012-10-05 04:50:46 - nvrijn: Blue ... How about a one turn notice truce and I'll concede all the Wache (airport)
2012-10-05 08:30:48 - anonymus: wow nice stack blue..
2012-10-05 09:53:38 - boingboingdaniel: if you wanna start to leave the area I won't hit your stack if that's what you mean
2012-10-05 18:13:14 - nvrijn: I meant I'd wrap around and never enter the airport. Chalk it up to my fear of flying :-)
2012-10-05 18:15:58 - nvrijn: I also provide a good buffer zone. Let me know if that works
2012-10-05 23:12:42 - steggy15: How do you want to proceed green? be amicable for awhile or battle?
2012-10-06 08:00:34 - anonymus: ok i take that as a thread blue so either step back to FS 4 and i will let you keep the bonus and just retake fs3 if you step in i will break you in airport and spend the rest of the game making it difficult in general..
2012-10-06 08:11:53 - luxbock: yellow... quite happy to be amicable for now ;)
2012-10-06 10:15:38 - boingboingdaniel: I'll compromise with you for now red, I'm going to keep my stack where it is but I won't come in
2012-10-06 10:17:26 - boingboingdaniel: I might change my mind though so play nice
2012-10-07 00:09:36 - nvrijn: Make that into a 1 turn notice treaty?
2012-10-07 08:10:08 - anonymus: ok i can live with that
2012-10-09 08:44:50 - anonymus: you see i could have broken your bonus blue, but i did not.. i just took a safe spot for when you decide to break the truce since you where beefing up for that..
2012-10-10 13:18:18 - steggy15: Green I plan on making a move in the next turn or two, just a heads up if you would like to vacate troops or load up for battle
2012-10-11 09:25:51 - luxbock: i'll continue to be amicable as long as i keep my bonus in that area ;)
2012-10-12 11:27:26 - steggy15: you've got yourself a deal green, at least for the near future
2012-10-12 11:28:53 - steggy15: I need to keep the current territories I have tho up there
2012-10-14 09:43:46 - luxbock: hmmm... i'm sure you could have taken a different "spot" though :)
2012-10-14 14:29:43 - boingboingdaniel: Hey cyan, I was hoping to reinforce some troops out of there next turn but didn't wanna go through your stack. If you could move it back for one turn I can come through and you can have it straight back
2012-10-15 22:17:34 - luxbock: so yellow... i take it the deal is off?
2012-10-16 13:28:06 - steggy15: ya, you broke the deal when you broke my bonus, I never broke up your bonus which was the deal
2012-10-17 00:06:53 - boingboingdaniel: im gonna start coming through anyway next turn cyan so one more chance to move if you wanna take it
2012-10-22 07:41:38 - nvrijn: I moved and you are through. I'm obviously hoping you don't plan on returning, but with that army you can pretty much do whatever the hell you want. Just let me know
2012-10-23 13:59:21 - anonymus: this is blues game for sure
2012-10-23 17:42:35 - boingboingdaniel: ye cyan im gonna advance but just a couple for now
2012-10-23 17:44:19 - boingboingdaniel: and red was hoping to join those 2 stacks, you can move your stack if you want first
2012-10-24 07:41:32 - nvrijn: Blue ... which stack? You are everywhere
2012-10-24 22:12:44 - boingboingdaniel: the 2 he can see
2012-10-24 22:13:37 - boingboingdaniel: oh wait he can't see 2 xD
2012-11-08 12:33:19 - boingboingdaniel: gg all
2012-11-08 19:33:56 - steggy15: gg boing
2012-11-09 08:48:30 - nvrijn: 50 guys on the access point? Talk about conspicuous consumption
