Fog of War
Slots Per Player
In a terminator game you get points for the players that you eliminate.
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 as many times as you like between regions that are connected.
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.
42 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.

2010-05-15 09:29:20 - DJPatrick: g00d LucK aLL KillerZ
2010-05-15 14:15:29 - iamkoolerthanu: gl :)
2010-05-15 19:39:37 - ksmith6353: Hope to learn a lot from you veterans:-) i liked the one troop per region the 'kooler' did already
2010-05-15 19:40:30 - ksmith6353: i usually put them all down on one and then attack.
2010-05-15 19:43:41 - ksmith6353: Also notice that kooler is spread out and not focused on any one area.
2010-05-16 04:00:26 - Eddy_26: gl guys
2010-05-16 04:08:19 - Eddy_26: that's the way most people play larger escalating games green
2010-05-16 04:08:59 - Eddy_26: you don't worry about bonuses, you wait until the cards are worth heaps and then take people out
2010-05-16 04:10:09 - Eddy_26: thats why you spread yourself out, to make sure we can get to everyone, and to make it harder to be taken out yourself
2010-05-16 08:43:20 - iamkoolerthanu: yup
2010-05-16 08:43:43 - iamkoolerthanu: you spread out your armies so that you have territories touching as many other spots as you can
2010-05-16 08:43:54 - iamkoolerthanu: only attack 1's, and stop if you lose 2 men
2010-05-16 08:44:18 - iamkoolerthanu: try not to get 5 cards in your hand untill the set worth is higher
2010-05-16 08:46:10 - iamkoolerthanu: in the beggining of your turn, before you even start, look at your opponents
2010-05-16 08:46:30 - iamkoolerthanu: if you eliminate any of them, will you be able to make a mid-turn cash?
2010-05-16 08:47:02 - iamkoolerthanu: do you have enough troops to eliminate them? are your troops in the correct position to eliminate them?
2010-05-16 08:47:54 - iamkoolerthanu: will the mid-turn cash allow you to have enough troops, and correct troop placement to eliminate another player?
2010-05-16 08:48:03 - iamkoolerthanu: etc, etc.
2010-05-16 08:48:17 - iamkoolerthanu: I enjoy these types of ggames very much :D
2010-05-16 19:28:59 - ksmith6353: Thanks for your thoughts, very insightful
2010-05-17 20:53:15 - ksmith6353: I've never played where there has been so much build up of troops. It will be interesting how it plays out!
2010-05-24 19:44:44 - ksmith6353: Is there a reason that Eddy deployed one troop at a time? Does that somehow strengthen the position with the computer?
2010-05-24 21:52:48 - iamkoolerthanu: he probably installed clickalbe maps, and doesn't know how to use it well...
2010-05-24 21:53:09 - iamkoolerthanu: its a program that allows you to attack, reinforce, deploy, etc by click on thee actual map
2010-05-24 21:53:26 - iamkoolerthanu: he probably doesnt know how to use it well enough to know the auto deploy button
2010-05-25 03:07:09 - Eddy_26: yeah i have clickable maps. I know how to use it properly, It's just a habit I've picked up from playing speed freestyle
2010-05-25 03:09:59 - Eddy_26: you don't have time to plan exactly how many troops you want there, so you just keep clicking until you have "enough"
2010-05-25 03:10:28 - Eddy_26: never been much of a planner lol
2010-05-25 04:25:13 - ksmith6353: I learned more from this game than from any other, thanks for the thoughts.
2010-05-25 09:31:24 - DJPatrick: wow that was quick roll when it came...gg...
