Fog of War
Slots Per Player
In a standard game each player fends for himself and there is only one winner.
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.
Each player has up to 24 hours to complete a turn. You will get an email notification when it is your turn to play.
45 Territories, 6 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2012-12-23 16:33:49 - Free Hatani: it looks an awful lot like a secret alliance
2012-12-23 16:41:44 - Free Hatani: that would also explain why the two biggest guys on the board took such pains to not break each others bonuses
2012-12-23 22:05:32 - rediago: no secret alliance
2012-12-23 22:06:16 - rediago: why should i attack red when easier targets are on the board. 15 armies to 1.
2012-12-24 01:02:18 - Joe Kickass: like the secret alliance you and pink had not attacking each other while you just sat there collecting armies.

2012-12-24 20:51:11 - rediago: why should we announce that we know each other? this fact does not put us in an alliance. like i said and if you look at all of our games i play pretty much the same. i take the easiest territory and stop.
2012-12-24 20:51:47 - rediago: what the difference when you and pink sit in the bottom and get bonus after bonus?
2012-12-24 20:52:13 - rediago: if you want to blame anyone for my strategy this game you should blame blue.
