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.
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.
48 Territories, 8 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.

2009-04-18 04:35:44 - Bones2484: I was more of a mario player ;)
2009-04-18 04:38:29 - Fireside Poet: I played it once, but it was just another shoot-em-up... definitely more into Squad Leader and as far as computer games, Raid Over Moscow on the Commodore and Archon ruled my time.
2009-04-18 05:36:51 - phantomzero: I played it a bunch on the nes, those were the days!
2009-04-22 22:02:16 - Bones2484: dum de dum /yawn
2009-04-22 22:02:26 - Bones2484: Someone do something stupid to give me an easy win. Thanks.
2009-04-23 19:10:36 - phantomzero: don't think so...
2009-04-23 21:44:33 - Bones2484: hmmmm
2009-04-23 21:47:02 - Bones2484: Well there goes that idea.
2009-04-23 21:47:15 - Bones2484: Died when I couldnt take the first territory 7v1. You live another day, FP!
2009-04-23 22:13:32 - Fireside Poet: Well, probably not.
2009-04-24 14:59:57 - Bones2484: If only I had a set there :)
2009-04-24 15:43:56 - Fireside Poet: This will be close, phantomzero.
2009-04-24 15:56:34 - phantomzero: yes it will
2009-04-24 15:58:27 - Bones2484: It's not looking good for you.
2009-04-24 15:58:47 - phantomzero: nope, now that there is an audience, my dice have died!
2009-04-24 15:58:57 - phantomzero: please look away!
2009-04-24 15:59:20 - Bones2484: I can't. It's like a trainwreck.
2009-04-24 15:59:46 - Bones2484: Starting to wonder when you're going to stop.
2009-04-24 16:00:11 - phantomzero: yeah, but it's a wreck for me!
2009-04-24 16:01:28 - Bones2484: Might want to weaken red a bit. If he has a set, it's done!
2009-04-24 16:01:56 - phantomzero: i think I'm done
2009-04-24 16:02:34 - phantomzero: yeah...
2009-04-24 16:10:14 - phantomzero: sorry I couldn't do it, I had great dice on the west, but bad on the east. it was a medium-long shot...
2009-04-24 16:16:56 - Bones2484: Gah.
2009-04-24 16:17:00 - Bones2484: You kept attacking... lol
2009-04-24 16:17:07 - Bones2484: I mean. You made the right move in going for it.
2009-04-24 16:17:19 - Bones2484: But once it was shot to hell, why keep going? I should have like 25-30 more armies than I do.
2009-04-24 16:47:02 - Bones2484: Luckily for you, I had a set. Since you didn't do anything to try to protect me from red.
2009-04-24 16:59:46 - Fireside Poet: Don't tell me the next game comes down to a 1vs1...?!
2009-04-24 17:03:44 - Bones2484: I think it is.
2009-04-24 17:03:50 - Bones2484: I guess I have a decision to make on my next turn!
2009-04-24 17:04:13 - Bones2484: Try to play for the win... or take out that 1 army I'm protecting so that I guarnatee to advance.
2009-04-24 17:09:09 - Fireside Poet: Ok, it is a series of 1vs1 games, from what I just read.
2009-04-24 17:09:48 - Fireside Poet: Well, about 40 pts or a shot at glory - your pick. ;)
2009-04-24 18:00:43 - phantomzero: this is a bonus game that give the winner a free loss in one of the future game
2009-04-24 18:00:48 - phantomzero: all 3 of us advance
2009-04-24 18:01:13 - phantomzero: yup, i'm not going to win this one
2009-04-24 18:06:01 - phantomzero: damn
2009-04-24 19:27:11 - Bones2484: Ok, talked with Keiths. You are correct, Phantom.
2009-04-24 19:27:25 - Bones2484: So since losing this game won't hurt me, might as well play to win and hope red doesnt have a set.
2009-04-24 19:28:03 - Bones2484: Although it's pretty hilarious losing 6 straight to a single when you're trying to break a few continent bonuses :P
2009-04-24 19:40:37 - Fireside Poet: 89vs62 - I came up almost 10 short.
