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.
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2011-08-20 16:10:30 - scifigirl: hi, gl
2011-08-21 22:14:34 - BigFuzzyBunny: u2 - and all others
2011-08-23 12:59:30 - rossteacher: oh shit.. bad reinforment lol
2011-08-23 16:10:17 - BigFuzzyBunny: i did that one time also. It sucks. And you can't reinforce backwards to your pitcher
2011-08-24 05:07:35 - rossteacher: yup had to kiss good bye to 21 units
2011-08-24 22:26:51 - BigFuzzyBunny: don't worry at this rate you will make them back
2011-08-24 22:27:45 - BigFuzzyBunny: besides, yellow lost 18 (plus what ever it took to take the space) on the homerun
2011-08-24 22:28:48 - BigFuzzyBunny: Not sure what the point of a sqaure is that give you 2 when you have to kill 8 just to get those 2. Unless you get good dice it will be a slow payback
2011-08-29 02:53:05 - rossteacher: how to hit the pitchers?
2011-08-29 14:41:45 - BigFuzzyBunny: via the mound
2011-08-30 14:26:57 - BigFuzzyBunny: wow, scifi has 25 bonus armies, that's a lot for this map
2011-08-30 15:03:26 - BigFuzzyBunny: anyone going to help fight the blue?
2011-09-04 12:30:38 - rossteacher: blue lets not kill each other too much, yellow is stacking u
2011-09-04 12:30:45 - rossteacher: up
2011-09-04 19:56:54 - scifigirl: you're the only one who can kill yellow, you have to attack from the hitter
2011-09-05 18:13:53 - rossteacher: is this a beta map?
2011-09-06 04:34:45 - scifigirl: think so, don't recall exactly
2011-09-06 15:51:02 - BigFuzzyBunny: they should make it so that the home runs can attack the pitcher (to get out of there) otherwise if ross gets taken out of Nolan there is no way to kill yellow
2011-09-06 15:51:45 - BigFuzzyBunny: right now he can't win, but someone is going to have to waste a lot of troops to take him out (or just get the bases)
2011-09-07 23:32:27 - scifigirl: Sorry I didn't give the heads up earlier, but I did see that under the list of attacking areas it says you just have to hold the bases to win
2011-09-07 23:32:36 - scifigirl: I didn't want to lose at that late stage
