Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In Quadruples games, four players team up against other teams. The last team alive wins.
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.
127 Territories, 25 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 4
Toggles change the setting temporarily, other settings are saved on a per map basis. For site-wide settings see our Game Settings page.

2011-07-12 15:13:24 - Wolffystyle: Last year was fun until Denise ruined everything by calling the park ranger a "callous castrate". We gave her props for the alliteration, but we lost our reservation with the Portland Parks Department for 6 years!

2011-07-13 12:42:41 - Wolffystyle: Wait a....moment. Charlie, I thought you were in the bretheren of the fat mermaid. When did you...Oh wait, you must have crawled back to the wrong room after a tequila-fueled night in Mexico...
2011-07-13 12:43:45 - Wolffystyle: Did I just give away something from FOG? Sorry, but someone needs to help Charlie off the beach. There are sharks and banditos out.
