Each player starts off by selecting a territory off the old Risk board (if you don't know the terts, they're listed under the maps spoiler). Each player can start with just 1 tert. This will give us a 42 player tournament. Each player must designate a home map from the list of possible CC maps that incorporate that territory
So there are 5 maps per tert and each player will choose their home map. When you take a new tert from someone else YOU MUST CHANGE THE MAP to something that the previous player did not use.
All games are escalating, chained, sunny since these are the general Risk rules that we all grew up with.
ROUND 1- 2 players will claim each territory during sign ups. Those who do not specify will be assigned one at my discretion. These players will then face off on all 5 of the maps for the territory (5 games sent at once). The first to 3 wins will get to play in Round 2, anyone who fails to win their 3 wins is out. Once all slots are determined the next round will begin with a PM from me.
For Round 2, after receiving a PM from me stating that ROund 1 is over all players will send me a PM telling me 1) what their home map is going to be and 2) where they are attacking. So for instance, Player A holds Japan. Player A would send a PM stating that he is attacking Kamchatka and that the home map is Duck n Cover. All these PMs will be tabulated and the games created. If two or more players are attacking the same tert (for instance, If the player in Mongolia is also attacking Kamchatka) one game will be made for all players involved winner takes the territory. If it is 1v1 it will be a best of 3 series.
It is possible for a player to lose their territory and still stay in if they win their attack.
After all Round 2 games are played the map will be updated-likely some will be eliminated and we'll move onto Round 3.
All players with 1-5 terts will have one attack per round. Players with 6-10 will have 2 attacks, 11-15 will have 3 attacks and so forth. You cannot use multiple attacks on the same territory nor may you attack from the same territory on multiple attacks so if you have 3 your PM will read something along the lines of "Siam attacks Indonesia, Ukraine attacks Middle East and Central America attacks Venezuela"
Players will get an extra attack based on holding a contintent for the following number of consecutive rounds. Asia-every round you start holding all of asia you get an extra attack Europe/North America-you must hold for 2 rounds (counted at the start of the round) for an extra attack Africa you must hold for 3 rounds Australia/South America hold for 4 rounds.
Players will get invites to join the games they need to be into the games within 48 hours (I'll invite twice) or they will be counted as a loss for that tert. Players do not have to make attacks on their turn if they do not wish to.

I have a question, though - can the attacks be used in succession?
For example, could you PM "Scandinavia attacks Russia. If a win, Russia attacks Ural - if a loss, Scandinavia attacks Iceland."
Also - my premium renewal is processing - will definitely have it by tournament time.
No, you can't use them in succession like that because I'll collect all the attacks at once and don't want to wait to start the Ural game until we see if your Russia attack succeeds. You'd have to use them from different terts.
KOM isn't in use on any of these, the attmot is made to use maps that show the tert in it so for example, Eastern US uses maps in which the Eastern part of the US is represented, Japan would use maps where Japan is shown. King of the Mountains doesn't represent any particular territories and as such isn't in use in this one.
I've slotted you in for east Africa but can change it if you want to something that is available when you request it.
