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.
There are no 'spoils' in this game.
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.
Regular leaderboard scoring is in place for this game

2014-03-13 08:55:57 - Kabanellas: I heard a rumor that if you let Yellow win, everybody wins points....
2014-03-14 04:47:27 - Rodion: There is another one that says that losing to the general means you lose less points!
2014-03-23 20:53:41 - Kabanellas: another rumor is that certain generals are willing to sacrifice themselves for the greater good... which is to let yellow win a lot of points
2014-05-12 19:06:58 - hopalong: i wonder if this ends with someone accidentally hitting auto-assault
2014-05-17 16:50:52 - Nola_Lifer: bbs for NL

2014-08-07 11:43:34 - Nola_Lifer: is there a way we can just make it so we all break even on the points?
