Fog of War
Slots Per Player
In a standard game each player fends for himself and there is only one winner.
With manual initial troops, each region is initially populated with 1 troop and during the first round of the game players deploy the rest wherever they see fit. During this first round, you cannot see your opponents' deployments and all players can play simultaneously.
In a freestyle game it doesn't matter in which order players take their turns. Players can even play simultaneously! After the last player takes his turn, a new round begins immediately.
At the end of your turn if you have conquered at least one region you will get 'spoils.' Once you have three of the same color (or three different) these can be traded in. Nuclear Spoils means that you do not get any bonus troops for trading in. Instead each region that you trade in is 'nuked' to a single neutral troop (even if you own it).
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.
40 Territories, 6 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3
