Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In a terminator game you get points for the players that you eliminate.
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.
72 Territories, 14 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.

2009-10-11 15:26:53 - Tisha: thanks for the invite thenobodies80.. :)
2009-10-11 15:36:23 - thenobodies80: ;)
2009-10-11 15:36:26 - thenobodies80: gl all
2009-10-11 20:54:13 - paulk: going to be a tricky map :)
2009-10-12 02:52:45 - paulk: horrible start. :(
2009-10-12 03:41:59 - Tisha: if the dice suck, you have to stop attacking paulk. It's escalating, so it doesn't matter if you cash last..
2009-10-12 05:51:34 - paulk: uh, forgot. :((
2009-10-12 15:03:48 - RedBaron0: too true... gl guys
2009-10-13 20:13:26 - FireStar: your map looks very nice Tisha... can't wait for a chance to play it with you.
2009-10-13 22:27:28 - Tisha: thanks FireStar.. :)
2009-10-14 04:46:45 - paulk: constantly bad dice...
2009-10-16 06:15:28 - paulk: probably not the smartest, but I cant stand to slowly see myself getting devoured alive.
2009-10-16 20:18:55 - RedBaron0: might not be the best for me either, but somebody here has a ton of armies...
2009-10-17 12:02:23 - thenobodies80: who? you ? ;)
2009-10-18 01:05:45 - paulk: I got a question. Is there any other way before you get a map into "BETA map" to try out different game play solutions? I'd love to test what works best with my cube map.
2009-10-18 04:44:14 - Tisha: no testing.. atleast on any of mine. maybe if you are a favorite of lackattack?
2009-10-18 05:52:06 - paulk: lol. I guess that's the only way. Or print it out and play it "au naturell". Only I don't really know any players where I live now...
2009-10-18 14:03:28 - thenobodies80: no there isn't (except print it). What is the problem in testing during the beta phase? it was created for this reason. ;)
2009-10-19 00:09:20 - paulk: No problem at all, IF I could get it there... which requires some more stamps I believe. wink wink.
2009-10-19 00:18:26 - paulk: ...but then there is also the fact that I would like to (in rapid succession, without graph. changes) try out different bonus systems that only the players know about and agreed to. Like for instance see if a minisquare should be 1, 2, or even more.
2009-10-22 13:09:13 - thenobodies80: gg redbaron0
2009-10-22 20:01:29 - Tisha: lol.. I tried to make it difficult thenobodies80
2009-10-22 20:03:51 - Tisha: it was nice of you to run over my stuff too
2009-10-22 21:55:26 - Tisha: that was great also
2009-10-22 21:55:59 - thenobodies80: argh
2009-10-22 21:56:23 - thenobodies80: crossing fingers...
2009-10-22 21:56:27 - thenobodies80: :)
2009-10-22 21:56:39 - Tisha: I don't knwo what made you think you could kill 130 men with cash at 65.. and profit
2009-10-22 21:58:40 - thenobodies80: sometimes it happens ;)
2009-10-22 21:59:16 - thenobodies80: i'm a crazy italian boy :P
2009-10-23 02:58:30 - paulk: lol, gg
