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 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, 18 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2012-10-21 02:12:30 - bamage: ah thanks man
2012-10-21 02:12:43 - bamage: i had no idea about that
2012-10-21 02:17:14 - bamage: hmmm.... this is a very metaphorical situation we have here
2012-10-21 02:17:23 - bamage: mutually assured destruction
2012-10-21 02:17:52 - bamage: I have enough armies to eliminate you two times over
2012-10-21 02:18:33 - bamage: In which case, you'll be dead and I'll eventually die
2012-10-21 02:18:48 - bamage: Since I can't touch xroad.
2012-10-21 02:19:23 - bamage: Any ideas on a way out of this for you and me, dahulius?
2012-10-21 02:20:03 - bamage: I have 53 minutes... I'll wait 20 ... if we can't figure something out, I have to commit right now to finishing you.
2012-10-21 02:20:36 - bamage: I'll hit refresh once a minute to see if you are around.
2012-10-21 02:23:07 - bamage: I posted a message to your wall in hopes you'll see it
2012-10-21 02:35:53 - dahulius: well....
2012-10-21 02:36:43 - dahulius: if red is not too close behind you I'll be able to bombard him in 3 turns.....
2012-10-21 02:37:25 - dahulius: you could let you stack on the warhead....I guess that and the distance might protect you till then
2012-10-21 02:38:15 - dahulius: then maybe....you'll be weak from attack from red, I'll be weak from attach on red...and it'll kinda be the frist of us with a set who would win
2012-10-21 02:38:27 - dahulius: first*
2012-10-21 02:41:05 - dahulius: hum...well...I guess that this way kinda give us both a chance at winning
2012-10-21 02:41:51 - dahulius: I think you'll have higher chance than me....but I'm hardly in a position to complain about that
2012-10-21 02:43:36 - bamage: i'm back
2012-10-21 02:44:31 - bamage: that would give me the unfair advantage
2012-10-21 02:45:01 - bamage: would you consider instead: if you kill red, then you and I set up another game - 1v1 - winner takes both?
2012-10-21 02:45:23 - bamage: Random map
2012-10-21 02:47:21 - dahulius: hum, that's fine with me
2012-10-21 02:47:38 - bamage: ok great -- good luck with red!
2012-10-21 02:48:20 - bamage: You're one stage ahead of red
2012-10-21 02:48:35 - dahulius: yea..hope that goes well :P
2012-10-21 03:14:35 - xroads: green you are such a sheep
2012-10-21 03:16:13 - dahulius: I couldn't kill him...but he only has 43 troops behind you now :P
2012-10-21 03:17:11 - bamage: he's a man of his word, xroads
2012-10-21 03:17:27 - dahulius: what? how could you know that my whole body was covered with wool? =O
2012-10-21 03:17:51 - bamage: dahulius, should i set this up as a speed game or casual?
2012-10-21 03:18:05 - xroads: ya, playing a seperate game to decide this one?
2012-10-21 03:18:13 - xroads: not sure if that is legal or not
2012-10-21 03:18:28 - dahulius: well....let's do a speed
2012-10-21 03:20:56 - bamage: ok
2012-10-21 03:40:15 - bamage: i'm going to finish up here
2012-10-21 03:44:22 - bamage: oh my... after all that i just hosed myself

2012-10-21 03:44:50 - bamage: lol
2012-10-21 03:45:04 - bamage: well, i got to know a really great guy
2012-10-21 03:45:16 - bamage: not that you're not - but he stuck to his word
2012-10-21 03:45:42 - bamage: hmmm... this is inevitable here right?
2012-10-21 03:45:57 - xroads: Just because he was stupid to listen to your reasoning
2012-10-21 03:46:06 - xroads: ya you are screwed, cant win
2012-10-21 03:46:22 - bamage: i wasn't paying attention - i thought you were dead
2012-10-21 03:46:41 - bamage: he wasn't stupid... i had enough armies to kill him twice over
2012-10-21 03:47:10 - bamage: i don't care if you get that or not, but don't be an ass... you can see how many armies i have
2012-10-21 03:47:32 - bamage: ok, well, i have to say - well-played
2012-10-21 03:48:17 - xroads: thx
