Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In an assassin game each player is assigned a secret target, designated in-game with crosshairs next to the username. You win the game if your target is killed - whether it be by you or another player!
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. A set of three reds is worth four bonus troops. Three greens is worth six and three blues is worth 8. A set of three different colors is worth ten bonus troops. 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.
42 Territories, 6 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3

2010-05-16 01:21:31 - jon_snow: gla
2010-05-16 01:30:42 - Army of GOD: Good luck. Thought I was red for a second. X(
2010-05-16 05:38:08 - king sam: good luck
2010-05-16 18:11:21 - king sam: it would be pretty silly to keep after me like that aog if im not your target, this is an assassin game.. u know that bonus wont stand
2010-05-16 20:34:08 - Army of GOD: I'm not "keeping after you". I'm just taking Europe. And hell, considering how unlucky I am lately, it's worth a shot.
2010-05-16 20:59:24 - king sam: 2 out of the 3 territories you have taken was mine, thats why i said u should probably not help my assassin soo much
2010-05-16 21:00:19 - king sam: and i told u your not going to keep that bonus
2010-05-16 21:54:39 - jon_snow: yea! I got a card!
2010-05-17 00:22:07 - king sam: your going to have to break that bonus yellow has blue cause i couldnt do it
2010-05-17 17:38:45 - jon_snow: done.
2010-05-18 01:36:53 - king sam: well i took his 10 stack there in moscow down to 5 in hopes you can break it again..
2010-05-18 16:40:23 - jon_snow: I did, but its someone else's turn to pick up the baton. Green can come up from Nairobi or pink from Asia.
2010-05-18 16:40:35 - jon_snow: Or Yellow can give it a rest already. :)
2010-05-18 17:28:31 - Army of GOD: Just let me have it. =D
2010-05-18 18:20:18 - king sam: if he keeps that bonus its game over guys.. me and blue have done our share and i doubt either of us can do it again, mb someone else can pull their weight.. mb who ever has him in their crosshairs
2010-05-18 18:21:08 - king sam: green i will hit cairo and give you the ability to do so with your 10 stack
2010-05-18 22:18:35 - king sam: wow mod dice worked
2010-05-19 00:56:21 - king sam: blue u might want to move from chicago.. im willing to bet he takes the bonus again, and i will need that stack to break it up
2010-05-19 01:02:17 - Army of GOD: Pink's so going to win this...
2010-05-19 01:23:49 - king sam: yeah he is
2010-05-19 01:25:31 - king sam: aog u baffle me with this fixation on that bonus and lack of care for taking out non targets in the process
2010-05-19 02:51:45 - Army of GOD: I'm not sure what you're talking about, I only took out 2 of your territs before you attacked me in Europe. You're the one who made it so that none of us would get any strong.
2010-05-19 03:25:56 - king sam: you have attacked me 5 times and other people 4 times.. 2 of those 4 being blue at moscow to regain that bonus.. i havent made it so no one would get strong, me and blue have been trying to fend you back from getting the 2nd largest bonus on a small board
2010-05-19 03:27:04 - king sam: and everytime without fear of what your doing you have attacked non targets and lessened others strenghts that arent your target allowing it easier for someone to win by eliminating myself or blue
2010-05-19 03:29:21 - king sam: pink is running away with this because instead of you deploying on manilla and going after your target pink you decide to attack others to get back a bonus that you will not hold... how many more rounds will you let this go on?
2010-05-19 14:12:55 - jon_snow: yellow, when you take a bonus like that you make yourself a target, and its usually a mistake.
2010-05-19 14:15:34 - jon_snow: I'm leaving your bonus intact so you can go fight pink.
2010-05-19 14:45:51 - king sam: im done trying to explain it to him... this makes me remember why i stopped playing assassin games, no matter how much fun they are you will always have 1 or 2 in every group that ruins the whole game
2010-05-19 18:08:57 - Army of GOD: See, you guys are just as much at fault. Red, by trying to keep me in line, you've made yourself incredibly weak instead of building yourself up. Your self-created "World Cop" belief doesn't have to exist. Yes, I would've had Europe, but does that mean i
2010-05-19 18:09:00 - Army of GOD: Woudl've won?
2010-05-19 18:09:47 - Army of GOD: You've guarunteed that you wouldn't win yourself by trying so hard to break my bonus.
2010-05-19 19:14:39 - king sam: Yeah I have made myself incredibly weak as you take yet another territory from me that you didnt have to..lol.. get a clue..you have now conqyered 11 territories and 3 have been your target... 6 of them have been me..
2010-05-19 19:14:54 - king sam: but your right Im the one that has kept myself weak...
2010-05-19 19:17:21 - king sam: i got a 10 set im cashing aog and as long as pink leaves me in tact at delhi im coming after you with full force... keep attacking me to reclaim that bonus, see how it works out 4 ya
