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.
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.
Each player has up to 24 hours to complete a turn. You will get an email notification when it is your turn to play.
43 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.

2008-08-23 01:09:56 - laci_mae: what did i ever do to you?
2008-08-23 01:09:58 - laci_mae: j/k
2008-08-23 01:10:01 - laci_mae: i understand
2008-08-23 16:57:03 - TaCktiX: I hate buildup games (I've said this before according to textcomplete)
2008-08-24 06:21:58 - laci_mae: yeah yeah yeah
2008-08-26 07:09:40 - amos_trask: pink....I'll withdraw from Bengal next turn n you can take India hassle-free.
2008-08-26 15:45:35 - amos_trask: ??? why did u do that? oh well, your loss. I was out of this game anyway n was trying to help save u some troops.
2008-08-31 16:41:50 - TaCktiX: good job blue
2008-08-31 16:41:56 - TaCktiX: very good job letting pink finally have that bonus
2008-08-31 17:04:35 - amos_trask: I think so too. I had to divert attention away from me, coz u and green were taking it in turns breaking me.
2008-09-03 02:23:01 - laci_mae: sorry tac, gg
2008-09-03 02:23:16 - laci_mae: the top 3 from this round move on, so i figured i'd make a move
2008-09-03 02:36:03 - amos_trask: Really? I didn't know that (I'm just babysitting for the honeymooner). Thanks for the advice and er....well done, obviously :-)
2008-09-03 02:36:20 - amos_trask: woohoo to we 3 !!!
2008-09-03 03:29:07 - laci_mae: at least if this game lasts a few more rounds, we won't be holding up the tournament
2008-09-03 11:21:52 - Tripitaka: Nice work Laci!
2008-09-04 06:16:50 - amos_trask: Green's getting rather strong. Have withdrawn from Bengal coz we can't afford to keep losing 5-6 armies each round fighting over it.
2008-09-04 11:45:42 - Tripitaka: Yes I know that, perhaps you should have thought about that before breaking my bonus before. ;)
2008-09-04 15:11:32 - amos_trask: I did think about it, I'm no fool. You were in the ascendancy and needed to be checked. Green took out red. Did I do something wrong?
2008-09-04 17:47:34 - laci_mae: i disagree. you 2 fighting over that spot is really helping me out
2008-09-04 17:47:35 - laci_mae: lol
2008-09-08 02:03:14 - amos_trask: silly dice :-(
2008-09-08 18:01:09 - amos_trask: alright all... im back.. chariot, as always mate, thanks for holding the fort...
2008-09-08 18:01:36 - amos_trask: green where did you spring from.... wish I'd seen all this game develop..
2008-09-09 07:53:17 - Tripitaka: I'm dropping on Bengal, but please don't take that as a threat Blue - I have no intention using them other than to protect my bonus - green is still the bigger worry here.
2008-09-09 07:56:13 - Tripitaka: Welcome back Amos! So how was the wedding and honeymoon?
2008-09-09 15:27:43 - amos_trask: It was all good trip... wedding went smooth until best man projected pictures of me naked in the bath and as a boy scout across the rooms walls..... not embarrassing at all!
2008-09-09 15:28:23 - amos_trask: honeymoon was awesome we sun chased across s europe france, spain, andorra.. need a holiday to get ovver it!
2008-09-09 19:05:52 - laci_mae: welcome back amos
2008-09-09 19:06:06 - laci_mae: glad to hear your marriage is off to a rousing start!
2008-09-10 11:45:45 - Tripitaka: Sounds like you had a real blast and I'm not jealous at all! I could certainly do with a few weeks in the sun after the so called summer we have had here!
2008-09-15 11:45:36 - amos_trask: oh trip forgot to mention cheers for taking me out...." I'm dropping on Bengal, but please don't take that as a threat Blue" ;)
2008-09-15 11:46:09 - amos_trask: fair enough tho btw
2008-09-16 11:28:38 - Tripitaka: I'm sorry Amos, but to be fair that was round 35 and I didn't attack Burma until round 40 and inbetween all that I was weakening green who was the leader at that time, but after being in a similar situation before where we were both...
2008-09-16 11:31:16 - Tripitaka: relying on each other not to weaken or attack the others bonus so we could concentrate on the stronger players, only to have your sitter break my bonus, I couldn't take the same chance of that happening again.
2008-09-16 16:37:58 - amos_trask: it was only tounge in cheek mate... one of us would have done it eventually ;)
2008-09-17 11:10:39 - Tripitaka: Yeah, no worries. I've a feeling I'm going to get my comeuppance soon anyway! :)
2008-09-21 03:21:12 - laci_mae: i'm going to need you to use words that i can understand.
2008-09-21 03:21:25 - laci_mae: :)
2008-09-21 18:26:10 - Tripitaka: Good game Amos!
2008-09-21 21:17:21 - laci_mae: gg blue. looks like i'm right behind you
2008-09-23 12:21:00 - Tripitaka: I wouldn't count on it with my dice!
2008-09-24 09:49:45 - Tripitaka: See told you! :)
2008-09-27 09:46:19 - Tripitaka: Good game Laci!

2008-09-27 18:20:41 - Tripitaka: Will do! Then we can really show these boys how it's done! ;)
