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.
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2008-09-16 15:42:34 - FreeMan10: Hey, guys. I think there may be an XML error in this map that BoB is making visible.
2008-09-16 15:43:39 - FreeMan10: Looking at the map right now, Red holds B3, which looks like it's got a "Blue Shop" icon on it. However, BOB's not indicating that he holds a "Blue Shop".
2008-09-16 15:46:46 - FreeMan10: Now that I look at it more closely, that seems to be the case for all "Shops" that in their own color block.
2008-09-16 15:47:32 - FreeMan10: For example, Green owns Red Shop R6, but that doesn't show up in BOB's continent overview.
2008-09-16 15:47:43 - FreeMan10: Is anyone else seeing this, or is it just me?
2008-09-16 15:48:17 - FreeMan10: Maybe it's not an XML error but an issue with BOB not parsing this map correctly. I'll post a note in the BOB forum thread to see if Yeti_C is aware of this.
2008-09-17 00:51:30 - Lynx Cat: Maybe the map isn't well-explained... I'm still not sure what's the deal with "my shop" vs. "other shops"
2008-09-17 00:52:25 - Lynx Cat: besides, I didn't get any autodeploys... or would I have to take the yellow house and shop for that? not my starting ones?
2008-09-17 00:53:18 - Lynx Cat: and lastly, I think it makes little sense to say, for example, "Blue Shop" when there are actually 3 blue shops in the game... but the game log doesn't specify which when you get the bonus
2008-09-17 00:55:03 - Lynx Cat: and also, looking at my bonuses in the 1st round... I got 20 each for "Yellow Shop", "All Cyan Shops", and "Green Neighborhood"... but looking at the map, I don't have ANY of these...
2008-09-17 00:55:12 - Lynx Cat: so maybe the names aren't clear
2008-09-27 23:04:15 - Lynx Cat: My internet connection should be spotty for the next few days, so I may miss turns... I apologize in advance
2008-10-03 02:46:20 - AceArtemis: Hey yellow, can you arson W1, W3, W5, and W7?
2008-10-03 02:47:11 - AceArtemis: I'd do it myself, but I don't want to go through 81 armies just to take out some 1's.
2008-10-05 05:22:29 - FreeMan10: GG blue. Didn't even realize I'd eliminated you!
2008-10-07 14:27:33 - AceArtemis: Good job, orange. If you didn't touch O1, I would have let you have the green area.
2008-10-10 16:16:04 - AceArtemis: Hey yellow, while we waste all our armies on our fight, green is getting stronger.
2008-10-10 16:17:56 - AceArtemis: I won't attack you next turn if all you take from me is S4, S5, S6, and S7.
2008-10-17 16:14:59 - AceArtemis: Sorry, orange, but you were really starting to annoy.
2008-10-18 09:36:08 - Lynx Cat: Sorry red, you're just too strong. Though it does come to mind that Green has 3 neighborhoods...
2008-10-20 12:29:33 - FreeMan10: gg guys. I got stuck in that corner and just never had enough strength to break out.
2008-10-21 01:11:32 - FreeMan10: hrm... What am I still doing here?
2008-10-24 23:31:57 - AceArtemis: gg everybody
