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.
36 Territories, 6 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3

2011-06-27 15:51:36 - iwillrocku: ha! it just occurred to me, in round 6, that this was not escalating cards
2011-06-29 02:20:14 - rjhankey: I'm wondering if anyone is in or near Snaefell ... it's driving me nuts not being able to see over there and know if someone's holding the bonus ;-)
2011-06-29 14:58:02 - iwillrocku: yes someone is holding the bonus.
2011-06-30 00:42:14 - squishyg: you can deduce bonuses by reading the handy dandy game log...

2011-07-18 23:55:55 - rjhankey: congrats duncana -- I can't deny (or confirm) that one -- but I'm sure we'll see it in the game log after the fog lifts
2011-07-18 23:56:08 - rjhankey: that's a big 10 points for you!
2011-07-21 19:13:39 - duncana: gg all, i wish you the best for this game !
2011-07-22 13:46:42 - dustin800: no bonus for duncan as the thread states: Special bonus is set on each map. If you can reach conditions for any bonus, you will get + 10 pts. Bonuses are available only with 4 players left.
2011-07-22 13:48:17 - rjhankey: if duncan held the bonus from round 5 to 11 ... he held it while there were between 6 and 8 players left though?
2011-07-22 13:48:37 - rjhankey: I couldn't see Snaefell this game, but the game log will reveal that when the fog lifts
2011-07-24 04:07:18 - dustin800: it says 4 players, not more or less so it depends on how they define it, i have held it over 3 turns as well, with most coming with 4 players
2011-07-24 14:54:17 - rjhankey: yeah -- read the forum posting for the tourney -- there have been questions raised about that, and the answer has been unanimously "at least"
2011-07-24 14:54:41 - rjhankey: and, it's the first player in the game to hold it for X rounds, one bonus per game
2011-07-24 14:56:28 - rjhankey: gg orange
2011-07-24 14:57:11 - rjhankey: gg green -- and gg all!
2011-07-24 21:22:30 - duncana: gg Pink. (=> for dustin :like rjhankey said, the answer is " at least" for the bonus . And not "exactly" 4 player left)
