Slots Per Player
Fog of War
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 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.

2010-12-16 03:52:29 - emelar: Well, that's just too bad for a pickle. At least you're not Pink, but this Yellow is tough. I can hardly see it - can't find my own name or troops. Still better than Pink.
2010-12-16 16:18:03 - wacicha: well the redman is Red that is appropiate, hides the blood better
2010-12-16 16:21:00 - wacicha: longboreder & moshu You are the only NON SoC players here. I commend you on getting to this game!!! longboreder - you have for a long time been a worthy adversary. Good luck to you both
2010-12-17 10:00:08 - macbone: I know, wacicha. It's a commendable feat to make it this far, but all of you are great players
2010-12-17 12:26:06 - oldrisky44: This is the Super Bowl guys. Fight hard.
2010-12-18 02:33:17 - emelar: I don't like all this fighting stuff. I'm a peaceful fellow.
2010-12-18 18:28:24 - oldrisky44: Oh yeah, a peaceful mad ultimate strategist.
2010-12-19 03:17:04 - longboreder: thanks wacicha, same to you
2010-12-20 13:30:12 - Patroclus: wacicha - I could beat you before and I still can. I'm better than you at this. Just admit it.
2010-12-20 13:30:43 - Patroclus: Oooopppsss! Did I open a can of worms? I guess I'd best diddle elsewhere?
2010-12-21 00:06:20 - longboreder: yes, pat, you'd best diddle elsewhere
2010-12-21 08:35:06 - emelar: I think he diddled on himself with his worm.
2010-12-21 16:11:13 - Patroclus: On a rainy day you don't need a diddle stick. The worms come to the surface
2010-12-21 16:11:31 - Patroclus: on their own accord....
2010-12-22 06:15:44 - wacicha: lol
2010-12-22 06:27:02 - wacicha: Dam they let Monkees in anywhere now.
2010-12-22 14:05:16 - emelar: And everybody, quit picking on me. Go pick on Cyan or Green. You don't want to be making me an easy target for Green or let those two dwarf you, do you?
2010-12-24 00:06:15 - emelar: Hmm? Complaint rectified, ty for listening if that's what you did.
2010-12-24 16:22:50 - wacicha: lol
2010-12-28 23:38:09 - emelar: Now, now, Wac, don't laugh. This is evidently a very nice group of people. ...And I have a chance to see now how nice you are [about a 33% chance :-) ].
2010-12-28 23:39:41 - emelar: [or 67% depending upon how you look at it].
2010-12-28 23:46:08 - emelar: Although, Green won't be doing too well either if you have that set. He seems to have been trying to sacrifice me, along with himself, to your tender mercy.
2010-12-30 00:31:42 - emelar: TY all for a very good game. Tough and lucky for me I had good dice. It was my honor to play this good field of players
