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.
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.
240 Territories, 71 Continents, 181 Start Positions, 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.

2013-06-26 02:22:53 - Bubonic Plague: hi all - have fun
2013-06-27 15:32:01 - Auger13: thanks you too guys :)
2013-07-05 05:29:39 - khc66: poor strategy
2013-07-07 03:12:02 - longboreder: better than no strategy
2013-07-07 03:42:41 - khc66: i was imagining that you would notice we were taking green and you would have taken blue with your partner...instead we fight back and forth and give the game to team 3.
2013-07-07 03:57:18 - khc66: but...we were going for it first and will continue i suppose to our mutual destruction
2013-07-10 19:11:57 - Bubonic Plague: gg- green
2013-07-11 00:45:09 - khc66: 33 and no way to reach him!
2013-07-11 02:48:07 - Hammer73: Hey Silver! Wanna help me drive Team 2 into the Pacific Ocean? You can have California and Hawaii. I'll take the other three. Sounds like fun, hu?!
2013-07-11 13:38:31 - Aline_Cedrac: Hello red! I am sorry, but unfortunately I had to protect other interests too!:)
2013-07-11 17:12:26 - Hammer73: I see that. WOW! Well, maybe another turn...
2013-07-12 11:51:30 - khc66: I thought it was bad form to make blatant alliances in CC. Was I mistaken?
2013-07-12 12:11:08 - khc66: stupid st paul
2013-07-12 12:14:03 - Beko the Great: "Any form of diplomatic discussion between opponents must only be posted in the game chat in English or in a language that all opponents understand." (From Rules of CC)
2013-07-12 12:15:04 - Beko the Great: We didn't attack your team and just made our game. I don't know what you want yellow
2013-07-12 13:12:13 - Aline_Cedrac: Good game Auger13!
2013-07-12 14:13:05 - Auger13: GG Guys! :)
2013-07-12 19:18:22 - khc66: i sais stupid st paul because i traded in to take out teal and st paul defeated so many of my guys i couldnt due it
2013-07-12 19:19:05 - khc66: since i traded in and dropped everyone in cchicago to get teal, there was not point in continuing to weaken him so i needed to do something else with those 80 guys
2013-07-12 19:20:07 - khc66: the logical course of action was to hit the team that was due to get over 80 total guys between them on their next go....
2013-07-12 19:20:24 - khc66: so that is why i attacked your team
2013-07-12 19:21:50 - khc66: as far as my quesion on bad form, it was just that, a quI have been in other games where it was mentioned you shouldn't do that, so that is why I simply asked the question. I do appreciate the clarification.
2013-07-12 19:24:56 - khc66: my comment to green early on was that we were fighting over washington. It was obvious my team was going for that and his was going for the blue area and it seemed very poor strategy for us to start the game out by instantly weakening each other....
2013-07-12 19:26:45 - khc66: as you can see it was very poor strategy....his team is down one and team 4 will win. We weakened each other enough to where we probably won't recover.
2013-07-13 04:17:42 - Bubonic Plague: i confused my partner - we have played in terminator games where it is generally 'taboo" to suggest a truce - allowed by rules - but usually not done in terminator
2013-07-13 14:48:36 - Aline_Cedrac: Good game ourhero16 and Hammer73!
2013-07-13 18:30:14 - Bubonic Plague: no way we are coming back - well played team 4 and gg all
2013-07-13 19:17:12 - Beko the Great: Good game all
2013-07-13 21:00:13 - Hammer73: Great game, everyone! Now THAT was a big map. Did anyone else think the light tan colored ovals overpowered the visual sense of the map?
2013-07-13 21:01:18 - Hammer73: I would look at the map, and all I could see was OVALS, not city names or territories.
2013-07-13 21:23:15 - khc66: gj team 4
2013-07-13 22:12:03 - Aline_Cedrac: Really nice playing with you all=D
2013-07-16 01:46:09 - Bubonic Plague: ovals didn't bother me - I hate the gray lines - not sure if they are roads or state borders - but they confused me as to what can attack what
2013-07-16 01:48:18 - Bubonic Plague: we would be up for a rematch if someone sets it up
