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.
70 Territories, 16 Continents, 8 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.

2009-10-12 01:24:42 - Mr_Adams: omg, grey, that was a mistake...
2009-10-12 01:25:29 - Mr_Adams: glitchy computer, I have to hit refresh map before I hit end asults, or it does auto, and I forgot to hit refres =(
2009-10-12 01:35:02 - impassive: I don't think this bodes well for my near-term survival
2009-10-12 15:04:44 - pogophiles: gg orange
2009-10-12 15:04:56 - pogophiles: I really should plan ahead better...
2009-10-12 18:02:53 - Blobby: gg grey
2009-10-12 20:12:55 - impassive: totally unexpected!
2009-10-12 20:12:56 - impassive: gg
2009-10-23 21:23:14 - Blobby: This is not going to end unless someone tries something stupid, and we are all too good for that
2009-10-23 21:23:50 - Blobby: I suggest a tiebreaker between the 4 of us, same map, escalating, what you say???
2009-10-27 22:47:54 - Mr_Adams: wow, I missed a turn?
2009-10-28 20:13:49 - Blobby: I guess we are stuck with thia game guys, as Mr Adams is not reacting to the invite or to pm's I have sent.
2009-10-28 22:45:57 - Mr_Adams: sorry for the delay. I joined the game ;)
2009-11-08 15:45:17 - Mr_Adams: snaps
2009-11-09 06:11:35 - Mr_Adams: card someone
2009-12-10 22:48:53 - pogophiles: Anyone interested in taking out Red this round? I think we could do it with a concerted effort...
2009-12-10 22:50:59 - pogophiles: I have a set and could take care of SE Asia, but would need help in Africa and China...
2009-12-11 06:10:59 - RedFun: we had a deal; I go out when I am out of the other one.
2009-12-11 14:14:37 - pogophiles: Not aware of any particular deal, certainly not one that crosses multiple games. Like you, I'm just tired of this sit & build approach.
2009-12-13 04:56:39 - impassive: uh-oh, are you guys running a tie breaker for this game or not?
2009-12-14 20:42:33 - Blobby: Yep :-) 3 of us left in it.
2009-12-14 22:44:39 - impassive: yeah, I check in on it occassionally to see how it's going
2009-12-14 22:44:52 - impassive: I guess I just misunderstood what pogo wrote above
2009-12-14 22:50:18 - pogophiles: Easier to follow if you read the chat in the other game. No worries though...
2009-12-15 21:30:02 - Blobby: I see what you mean Imp. We all agreed to a tiebreaker pogo, which is why the 4 player game was set up. No one should be taking anyone out of this game. The winner of the tiebreaker decides this.
2009-12-16 05:37:42 - pogophiles: Ah, I misunderstood.
2009-12-19 00:36:30 - Mr_Adams: you guys can start killing each other now ;)
2009-12-19 16:01:39 - pogophiles: GG All!
2009-12-19 16:04:46 - Blobby: GG all, Congrats Mr. A.
2009-12-20 00:45:47 - Mr_Adams: always forget about naval superiority
2009-12-20 03:36:33 - pogophiles: Didn't matter - Naval Superiority kills you off on the next round anyway...
2009-12-20 03:40:54 - Mr_Adams: I know =)
