Slots Per Player
Fog of War
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 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

2011-02-20 17:57:05 - rdsrds2120: Why break me when greens my monstrous neighboy?
2011-02-20 17:57:08 - rdsrds2120: neighbor*
2011-02-21 19:38:29 - badlouie: good point rdr. accept my olive branch.
2011-02-21 19:43:24 - rdsrds2120: alright
2011-02-24 23:00:11 - rdsrds2120: blue, card kentucky?
2011-02-26 07:35:09 - mviola: green and/or red, card spot on utah?
2011-02-26 08:12:49 - freyme: sorry, did not see your note until too late
2011-03-05 14:38:21 - freyme: Someone has to do something. I am getting an itchy trigger finger and I have nothing to lose since I am 60 armies behind the next person.
2011-03-06 23:57:11 - rdsrds2120: Wait until you have 10,000 troops..
2011-03-06 23:57:19 - rdsrds2120: then you could probably attack everyone and win
2011-03-10 02:10:17 - rdsrds2120: Round 40 almost! Let's go! w00t w00t!
2011-03-13 16:31:54 - badlouie: rude rd.
2011-03-13 16:32:38 - badlouie: and not very smart, with green the actual threat. You could have easily hit Arkansas with the same result.
2011-03-14 02:38:39 - rdsrds2120: i think I took like, a 30 or something off you.
2011-03-14 02:38:53 - rdsrds2120: it's not very hard to leave card spots, blue
2011-03-14 03:21:02 - badlouie: I couldn't wait for you to take your turn and leave me the spot in Kentucky. I was heading out, so I was hoping you'd make the smart move and slow down green, or simply skip a card for 1 round
2011-03-14 03:35:01 - rdsrds2120: If I attack green, I don't want to be the only one that does.
2011-03-14 04:30:47 - spidey: hey why attack green. you know it isn't easy being green.
2011-03-19 00:30:43 - rdsrds2120: As much as I've attacked green, he's still on par with you guys
2011-04-08 19:22:44 - badlouie: frey... if you move your big stack out of ILL, I'll move all my troops out of the Rockies region
2011-04-09 14:25:27 - freyme: will do next round. Did not see your message until after I ended.
2011-04-10 01:00:40 - badlouie: sounds good frey
2011-04-21 16:37:10 - badlouie: yellow... if you want to have a shot against green, you need to do something..
2011-04-21 16:37:44 - badlouie: I wasted a lot of troops breaking his bonus, but you sat by & watched so I gave it up.
2011-04-21 16:38:25 - badlouie: with 12 armies a turn, he'll own this game before we know it.
2011-04-21 20:25:28 - mviola: i had attacked earlier in the game but no one else did anything at that time either
2011-04-22 03:13:10 - badlouie: We're 129 rounds in. Things have changed.
2011-04-22 03:13:54 - badlouie: I'll do my part too mv. Just want to establish a level playing field.
2011-04-22 03:14:19 - badlouie: I took this turn quick, before looking at the board....otherwise I would have acted right away, my apologies
2011-04-22 07:01:50 - spidey: not looking liking Im going to be lasting much linger according to chat. lol
2011-04-24 13:00:55 - badlouie: your turn mv.
2011-05-05 13:31:06 - badlouie: green, you moron.
2011-05-05 14:10:17 - spidey: why am i the moron< you were the one who started to attack me. I figured I would return the favour. I am more then willing to truce.
2011-05-05 14:39:44 - badlouie: You were right back in the game & drawing a good bonus. All you accomplished by taking out my stack is weakening both of us.
2011-05-05 14:40:00 - badlouie: There was no benefit to you whatsoever. THAT is why you are a moron.
2011-05-05 23:13:47 - rdsrds2120: When will it end!
2011-05-12 18:13:08 - badlouie: red...why?
2011-05-13 03:14:00 - freyme: It was a misclick. Meant to hit Utah but I didn't realize the clickie did not take before hitting auto.
2011-05-13 15:35:54 - badlouie: damn. the clickies make me nuts.
2011-05-27 13:17:55 - badlouie: slowly but surely, green's going to grind this one out.
2011-05-27 15:10:10 - spidey: gilligan will stalemate this one before that happens
2011-05-31 22:39:35 - freyme: I believe this game is one the voided ones that doesn't count any way.
2011-06-01 16:56:31 - badlouie: regardless of the tourney implications, green will simply grind us all down over time for the win.
2011-06-02 11:05:40 - freyme: I agree. I have been stuck in the middle waiting to die since about round 10.
2011-06-03 13:07:22 - badlouie: If that stack moves in from Arkansas, your game is over spidey.
2011-06-03 19:10:42 - badlouie: Nighty night dipsh*t.
2011-06-04 03:52:51 - freyme: gg
2011-06-04 05:10:12 - mviola: its over!!!
2011-06-04 05:10:14 - mviola: gg
