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. 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.
62 Territories, 15 Continents, 9 Start Positions, Min Reinforcements: 3

2011-06-22 23:54:27 - PnC: sorry about that green, i was not aware of this. I checked and it seems you are right.

2011-06-23 15:28:51 - SirSebstar: note to PnC. you are allowed to misdirect or shout out in gamechat. it may not be equally appreciated by everybody(and sometimes against the specific tournament rules), but it can be allowed.
2011-06-23 15:29:11 - SirSebstar: So something like do not attack me PnC or you will pay for it dearly.. that could work.. ;-)
2011-06-23 15:30:39 - SirSebstar: something mcshanester29 just found out at his peril!
