Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In a Doubles games, pairs of two players team up against other teams. The last team alive wins.
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.
There are no 'spoils' in this game.
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.
2012-12-15 18:17:36 - Gunn217: do you mean me harm cyan? I'm going to leave your stack alone in good faith.
2012-12-16 05:15:21 - LatinWarMaster: Green, if my partner agrees I might be willing to offer a cease fire. However, it would have to be turn based and on the condition that you (Gunn217) and I both go to battle with other teams. That way there is less troop build up at my border.
2012-12-16 15:18:28 - Gunn217: i haven't built anything on your border. You come to me...and then I did not attack. If you attack me, I'll attack you back, then we both lose.
2012-12-17 17:06:51 - LatinWarMaster: Sorry Gunn217, I would have preferred a formal alliance since you cearly had the advantage the way things were.
2012-12-17 18:36:18 - Gunn217: Advantage? What the hell? I didn't attack you. I had no intention of attacking you. I though I made that clear by NOT ATTACKING YOU!
2012-12-17 18:37:38 - Gunn217: If you're going to say that me attacking those singles caused you concern...well...I don't know how else I could have seen what your intentions were without doing it. And I didn't advance, clearly indicating I had no intention of moving forward.
2012-12-17 18:38:18 - Gunn217: I've played you two before and have respect for you guys but that was a pointless and stupid move.
2012-12-17 18:40:05 - Gunn217: Team 4 is running away with it. What possible purpose would there have been to attack me!
2012-12-18 15:35:54 - LatinWarMaster: I agree, that move wasn't my best. I'm still willing to talk. Cease fire between us... but we need to engage the other teams.
2012-12-18 18:59:02 - Gunn217: : I'm not going to truce with you but I will say that I have no intention of attacking you if you leave me be. Trust me or not is up to you.
2012-12-18 22:12:37 - LatinWarMaster: OK fair enough, can you please move that 7 stack out of the way so I can go and attack another team? Thanks.
2012-12-18 22:13:27 - LatinWarMaster: And maybe your other larger stack a bit further from my entrance as a gesture of good faith? :)
2012-12-18 22:57:05 - Gunn217: Ok.
2012-12-19 14:22:19 - LatinWarMaster: My appologies Gunn... I was unaware of the 20 round limit. I seem to have taken on too many games.
2012-12-19 15:17:38 - Gunn217: : no problem
2012-12-21 16:49:50 - kozone4: Fidias, those troops aren't going to be attacking you.
2012-12-22 23:50:21 - fidias: ok...
