Fog of War
In a Doubles games, pairs of two 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.
29 Territories, 9 Continents, Min Reinforcements: 3

2008-08-09 14:44:28 - comic boy: Seems fair that we go last yet again
2008-08-09 16:25:14 - barterer2002: gl guy
2008-08-09 16:26:14 - barterer2002: I suspect that over 60 games things kind of even out over who goes first and who goes last
2008-08-09 16:33:26 - comic boy: So will the fluke dice but how does that help us ?
2008-08-09 18:44:33 - barterer2002: are you complaining because you like to hear yourself complain or because you want us to do something about it and if so what?
2008-08-09 20:20:18 - Hatchman: Yeah we like to hear ourselves complain - hope you don't mind the noise.
2008-08-09 20:21:15 - Hatchman: Perhaps we'd be a little quieter if you didn't get a joke of a drop.
2008-08-09 20:21:30 - Hatchman: KInda takes the skill out of the game.
2008-08-10 00:10:25 - barterer2002: Noise is fine. Just wanted to make sure you didn't want me to do something here to solve all your problems.
2008-08-10 10:08:15 - Hatchman: You could stop being a jerk...
2008-08-10 14:54:40 - Bones2484: We just figured two players that have your high skills would be used to bad luck and be above constant whining.
2008-08-10 15:33:11 - comic boy: Americans complaining about whining and beinh jerks - such sweet irony
2008-08-10 15:33:22 - comic boy: being
2008-08-10 15:39:43 - Hatchman: Nope, whining comes with the territory LOL - good game
2008-08-10 18:56:57 - Hatchman: I should say congrats (as it was not a great game for us)
2008-08-10 19:54:00 - barterer2002: Just so I'm clear here. You guys can complain and bitch about anything that happens and that's OK but if someone calls you on your whining they're a jerk-Just making sure I understand here
2008-08-10 20:14:27 - Hatchman: let's drop it - peace
2008-08-10 20:22:07 - Bones2484: I dont recall either of us calling you jerks. I'm sure you are both very nice people. If you look back, comic boy, it was YOUR teammate who called US jerks.
2008-08-10 20:23:42 - Hatchman: I detected a note of sarcasm and I responded. Simple.
2008-08-10 20:24:07 - Bones2484: I thought you dropped it? :)
2008-08-10 20:24:07 - Hatchman: Can we move on?
2008-08-10 20:24:40 - Hatchman: Well clearly you haven't lol
