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. 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 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.
86 Territories, 22 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3

2012-10-08 20:13:33 - markthe1st: yeah ok craig, looks like pink / yellow have an 'unofficial' truce just now anyway
2012-10-10 18:05:17 - jakewesthoff: sounds good blue
2012-10-14 12:04:59 - Karibdus: man i shouda been checking the chat
2012-10-15 14:07:11 - craigv: Blue, you have to deal with pink...
2012-10-17 21:22:30 - craigv: Red, you might want to consider moving Iowa so blue has a path out
2012-10-17 23:18:34 - jakewesthoff: blue wat do u want to do
2012-10-18 15:17:39 - markthe1st: yeah red, that would be only real way out for me, thru Iowa
2012-10-18 21:31:52 - jakewesthoff: well i guess u can go through ohio now
2012-10-22 21:19:30 - craigv: blue, i'd like democrats and have no prob with you moving south. Will be glad to observe the same truce at new borders.
2012-10-23 11:50:56 - markthe1st: yeah ok
2012-10-25 00:07:16 - craigv: 2nd is just the last loser yellow.
2012-10-25 16:27:43 - Karibdus: what does 2nd in a 3 way truce get to be?
2012-10-26 12:52:57 - Sethers: good game red
2012-10-27 13:10:02 - craigv: Be interesting when yellow finally realizes that pink isn't his buddy.
2012-10-27 14:32:13 - Sethers: yellow, offiicial truce until the other 2 are dead? We are on pace to be about even troop and bonus wise.
2012-10-27 15:10:38 - craigv: Bad move yellow. If you take it you have a whole lot more exposure to both blue and I than pink does. You shield his bonuses but yours will get hit
2012-10-28 01:44:42 - Karibdus: you can take victoria & bc.
2012-10-28 01:46:09 - Karibdus: were seein the same sether, xcept i dont reckon a truce in a standard game makes sense to me
2012-10-28 01:48:28 - Karibdus: even craigy was at a loss for words on that question.
2012-10-28 01:50:30 - Karibdus: well just keep goin along, til 1 dem suicides or something. obviously if we attack each other we would both lose.
2012-10-28 01:54:47 - Karibdus: st paul might be a good place to trade cards
2012-10-29 20:12:54 - Karibdus: i'll say this though. since craigy brought about a 3 way truce in a singles gAme. i
2012-10-29 20:14:33 - Karibdus: i feel this game is in hand for either you or I. how bout we finish off this & then you & i join a heads up game & split the points there.
2012-10-29 20:15:57 - Karibdus: whaddya say sethers?
2012-10-29 20:18:57 - Karibdus: should be a 100 points here give or take. We can join 3 heads up speed games & the winner here will
2012-10-29 20:20:36 - Karibdus: just lay down. That should split the points pretty close. Now the ? is who uf us 2 wins this game right. well maybe craigy will suicide & decide for us
2012-10-29 20:21:36 - Karibdus: or maybe you have a better plan?
2012-10-29 21:03:46 - Sethers: That plan makes sense. I'm guessing he'll choose for us
2012-10-29 21:04:42 - Sethers: And miss click
2012-10-29 22:29:37 - craigv: That's pretty chickenshit if you ask me and makes me think you've been in Secret Diplomacy from the start. Of course two teamed up will win. This isn't doubles. Big difference between a truce and teamwork.
2012-10-30 13:50:14 - Extreme Ways: Just play the game cowards, Craig is obv right
2012-10-30 21:30:00 - Sethers: And you can mind your own business since we don't care what you have to say
2012-10-30 21:44:50 - Sethers: Orange, I understand your point. Yellow, everyone for himself after this round.
2012-10-30 21:46:37 - Sethers: Nothing secret either, more just obvious survivalism when everyone else is teaming up makes no sense to weaken ourselves against each other
2012-10-31 11:41:07 - king achilles: Please don't plan ahead of having a deciding game even before there is still a 3rd player in the game. Fight this one out.
2012-10-31 16:02:43 - sirgermaine: well, thanks craigv, I just found a couple more jerks to foe
2012-10-31 18:41:30 - Karibdus: craigy you went & told your big brothers the mean players not in your 3 way truce were picking on you. !
2012-10-31 18:43:32 - Karibdus: sethers if you wanna change the plan then lets stay truced til their gone then 2 rounds to get set & we can go at it then.
2012-10-31 18:44:20 - Karibdus: no sense playing this hard just to stop now
2012-10-31 19:19:17 - Karibdus: craigy is accusing of us "Secret Diplomacy", with capitol letters even.
2012-10-31 19:25:38 - Karibdus: Sethers remember when he was callin on blue to attack you, just like 2 teammates would
2012-10-31 19:30:39 - Karibdus: now we turned it around on him & he's is throwin a fit, please.
2012-10-31 19:31:41 - Karibdus: Again we both played this really well, be a shame to let it go. Lets just finsh em off,
2012-11-01 15:03:27 - Sethers: yeah, definitely 2 faced to have a truce and then get grumpy when the other's truce beats out yours
2012-11-01 15:04:33 - Sethers: I've never played with someone who whinned to others about a game where they're truce failed. That's a new one
2012-11-01 15:04:46 - Sethers: (their)
2012-11-02 17:42:30 - Sethers: good game yellow. Well played
2012-11-02 17:43:06 - Karibdus: so are we playing this out or what?
2012-11-02 17:50:59 - Karibdus: you want to try a doubles game? what maps do you like?
2012-11-02 18:22:15 - Sethers: doubles would be great. You pick
