------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TripleA is a free turn based strategy game and board game engine. Has single player vs ai/hot-seat, multiplayer through Play By Email, network play, and a hosted online lobby. Comes with 4 games, and over 100 more games and maps that can be downloaded from the user community. It is open source, needing only Java 6 to run (can run on Windows, Mac, Linux, etc). Supports features such as savegames, encrypted dice gen, low luck, and many other options. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ How do you download more maps? ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ TripleA comes with, by default, just 4 maps: Big World, Great War, Capture the Flag, and Minimap (TripleA version 1.3 and later have 4 additional maps: New World Order, Pact of Steel, Napoleonic Empires, and Middle Earth) To download more, All you have to do is start up TripleA (Yes that means run the .exe or .sh) and click on the Download Maps button. A dialog box will open where you can add links to "Map Repositories" (sites that host maps.) Here is the best link to add (at the time of writing this): AGAIN, Just take the link (the long http one that ends in .xml), and copy it. Then open up TripleA, click on Download maps, then PASTE it into the blank box there, then click "list games". (Opening the link in your web-browser will do nothing for you). Here is a slideshow showing how to do it: If you need to install the maps Manually, they are located at: (Windows) C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\triplea\maps (Mac) /home/user/documents/triplea/maps (Linux) /home/user/triplea/maps Simply download the zip and move it to that folder. No need to unzip if the zip file is properly set up. You can download the zips manually from ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ How to Play ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Very Basic 'How to Play': Though some games have special rules enforced, most games follow some of these basic guidelines. - 1. Players start their turn by choosing what they will produce. They spend the money they gathered during their last turn on new units or even technology. These units will be put on the board at the end of the player's turn. - 2. Then that Player does a "combat move", which means moving units to all the places they wish to attack this turn. Simply click on a unit and move your mouse to the territory you wish to attack, and then click again. You can select a path for a unit to take by holding down 'ctrl' and clicking on all the territories on the way to the final territory it will be attacking. Pressing shift or ctrl will select all units. Right clicking will deselect a unit. - 3. Then everyone resolves all the combat battles. This involves rolling dice for the attacking units and the defending units too. For example, a Tank might attack at a "3" meaning that when you roll the dice you need a "3" or less for him to "hit" the enemy. If the tank hits the enemy, then the other player chooses one of his units to die, and the battle continues. After each round of dice, the attacker chooses to retreat or press on until he has defeated all enemy units in that territory. The game rolls the dice for you automatically. - 4. After this, the Player may move any units that have not yet moved as a "non-combat" move, and any air units return to friendly territory to land. - 5. When the player has completed all of this, then he or she may place the units that they have purchased at the beginning of their turn. Then the game engine counts out the value of the territories they control and gives them that much money. The next nation then begins their turn. Games last until one side surrenders. To see the specific rules and notes for a specific game, first start playing that game, then click the HELP menu at the top of the screen. From there, click "GAME NOTES".

Has single player vs ai/hot-seat, multiplayer through Play By Email, network play, and a hosted online lobby. Comes with multiple games, and over 100 more games and maps that can be downloaded from the user community. It is open source, needing only Java 6 to run (can run on Windows, Mac, Linux, etc). Supports features such as savegames, encrypted dice gen, low luck, and many other options. Recreate World War 2 with the Axis pushing through to Moscow and Japan devouring the Pacific, or recreate Napoleon's march across Europe, or Rome defeating the Carthaginian Empire, or even Sauron conquering Middle Earth, or Zombies taking over America! If you have ever played a game where you push little plastic or virtual pieces around, roll dice, conquer the lands of your enemy, and produce new pieces to conquer with, Then you will be able to jump right into TripleA! An example game that comes included with TripleA is "Big World: 1942" A scenario loosely based on the year 1942 in World War 2. In Europe, Germany has Leningrad besieged, stands at the gates of Moscow, and is on the verge of defeat at Stalingrad. In the Pacific, Japan has expanded explosively but faces a possible turning point at Midway. Germany and Japan fight as the Axis pitted against the Allies of Russia, the United Kingdom, China, and the United States of America. Players will take control of these nations, using their armies, navies, and air forces to battle out who will control the world. Player have such units as Infantry, Artillery, Tanks, Fighters, Bombers, Transport ships, Submarines, Destroyers, Cruisers, Battleships, Aircraft Carriers, Anti-Aircraft Guns, and Factories. All of these units have special functions and features, and all attack and defend at differing values (represented by rolling a die for each unit and getting a certain number or less). Territories have different values, both strategically and production value, which can be used to produce more units to use the next turn. Players must work with their team mates, developing strategies and producing units to reach their ultimate goal: Victory! TripleA will run on any platform that has Java 6 installed (Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.); just choose the download that applies to you.
