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.
93 Territories, 192 Continents, 1 Objectives, 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.

2009-07-21 17:20:48 - DBandit70: I think that might be game
2009-07-21 17:22:06 - DBandit70: I am sad the series is coming to an end I enjoy these matches
2009-07-21 19:17:23 - endar1077: yah, you just straight up kicked my ass
2009-07-21 19:17:28 - endar1077: 4-1, i didn't see that coming
2009-07-21 19:17:44 - endar1077: i really thought I had a chance against you, after I studied up on your strategy a bit, but it didn't help me
2009-07-21 19:29:49 - DBandit70: I am impressed you took the time to study up before the match
2009-07-21 19:30:34 - DBandit70: maybe we will get a chance to rematch in the future
2009-07-21 19:31:41 - DBandit70: my apologies in typing to you I misdeployed my men
2009-07-21 19:32:59 - endar1077: lol
2009-07-21 19:33:23 - endar1077: yah, well it sort of looks like you played differently in the games I looked at from ou
2009-07-21 19:33:51 - endar1077: just slightly, but this whole attack one, then the next turn take three (two of which were villages) was a common theme in this match of ours
2009-07-21 19:34:05 - endar1077: and in the sampling of games that I looked at from you, I did not find it anywhere else
2009-07-21 19:34:13 - endar1077: maybe i just didn't look at enough : )
2009-07-21 19:35:00 - endar1077: sort of interesting, though - I guessed one way on the first one, and when I didn't find you I tried something different on the next one
2009-07-21 19:35:14 - endar1077: but it turns out my first guess would have been apporpriate for the second game, lol
2009-07-21 19:35:31 - endar1077: so in making the logs look the same in two of the games, while actually doing different things, you led me astray
2009-07-21 19:36:25 - DBandit70: well admittedly I played differently out of respect for you, many of the people who play the map you can get away with playing smart and careless, against you I was extra careful to be creative
2009-07-21 19:36:57 - endar1077: ;-)
2009-07-21 19:37:03 - endar1077: that makes me feel a little better
2009-07-21 19:37:06 - DBandit70: thank you for the games it was a pleasure to compete against you
2009-07-21 19:37:45 - DBandit70: best of luck the remainder of the challenge
