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 as many times as you like between regions that are connected.
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.

2009-12-15 17:33:15 - Lubawski: Thanks for joining guys. I know it required an act of bravery. We'll make this quick. : )
2009-12-20 09:45:54 - Eyestone: gg
2009-12-21 14:27:28 - Lubawski: good game all
2009-12-21 23:25:28 - Namor: Has anybody else had trouble with the map loading properly? I'm getting the troops, but only on a white background. makes it tough determining the leeter codes for each spot.
2009-12-22 05:30:16 - Eyestone: I get it sometimes, but it usually comes back when you reload it.
2009-12-22 16:49:33 - Chuuuuck: I get it all the time... I go days without being able to see this map
2009-12-22 17:06:45 - Lubawski: Refresh your browser and it clears up. Just refreshing the map doesn't always do it. It has to be a new coding they put in. It will be fixed soon I hope.
2009-12-22 17:32:47 - Goomer: Yeah, I get it all the time on this map only. I use Safari on a Mac, so something tells me others are having this issue using other browsers. I normally have to reload once or twice for the problem to clear up.
2009-12-23 07:28:01 - Eyestone: I guess we know the reason why we're losing the game then.. you guys are used to play this blindfolded ;)
