Slots Per Player
Fog of War
In a Triples game, trios of three 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.
Regular leaderboard scoring is in place for this game
44 Territories, 10 Continents, 3 Start Positions, Min Reinforcements: 3

2009-12-18 05:12:12 - Eyestone: lubawski: Your prediction have become painfully true... this isn't fun anymore...
2009-12-19 03:49:55 - Eyestone: gg

2009-12-20 04:29:45 - chephren: you googled that Mike, didn't you ;-)
2009-12-20 10:49:37 - pconnolly365: Impressive info! I will sleep well tonight.
2009-12-20 14:14:53 - Lubawski: I'm an English teacher Mark, you know this. I taught the Epic of Gilgamesh two years ago to my 6th graders (along with the Illiad, Odyssey, and Oedipus Rex)
2009-12-20 16:34:49 - Lubawski: good game guys. The dice here were very odd
2009-12-20 18:14:29 - slickstm: nice game...ur right seemed like they were hot and cold and back and forth for both teams
2009-12-21 09:52:59 - Eyestone: I've never heard of the tale, really. Is it worth looking into?
2009-12-21 11:29:04 - pconnolly365: gg guys
2009-12-21 14:28:41 - Lubawski: Not really. It's a great comparison to the flood story of the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible)...and it came first. But aside from literary history or study of the epics, there's no need to read it.
2009-12-21 16:41:00 - chephren: gg all...that was some pretty messed up dice in that game...firstly for us, then even worse for you.. hard luck
