Fortification of Armies

Pressing the [Yes] button when
asked if you want to fortify will
now allow you to move trapped
There will be several blocks to
show up on the screen. The first is
the fortify information block, and
the other is the prompt block.
Fortifying is done by constructing
a troop movement sequence in the
information block, and then carrying
out the sequence through the prompt

Fortify Information Block -

The information block is a small
display showing:
| |
| From |
| [Territory fortifying] |
| |
| To |
| [Territory being fortified] |

This display shows which territory
is moving the armies, and as a
result which is receiving. The
territory fortifying is the
currently active territory. The
territory being fortified has not
yet been selected, and as a result
the box under "To" displays
"Unfortifiable" or "None" in it.
At this time there are several
options available. The player can
look around using the [Info] button,
or change the "From" and "To"
In the information block there is
a blue box surrounding one of the
two boxes labelled From and To. The
one highlighted (with the box around
it) is the one that will change when
the active territory is changed on
the map. To switch between which
box is highlighted at the current
time use the hot keys labelled in
red, or click on the box of the one
you want to change.
remember, you can't fortify from
a territory that has one army on it.
The game will tell you so when you
try. Also, you can only fortify
territories that belong to you, and
are adjacent to you.

Prompt Block -

The prompt block contains two
buttons. These are:

[Fortify] - Used to fortify your
[Cancel] - Used to cancel the

The [Fortify] button is only active
when a valid fortification has been
constructed in the information
block. When you press this you will
be prompted as to the number of
armies to move to the adjacent
After the armies have been moved,
the next player will be up. His/her
name will appear in the box in the
bottom right hand corner of the map.
Pressing the [Cancel] button will
abort the fortification process and
turn control over to the next

If done with some strategy the
player can fortify solid boundaries
to prevent being attacked.

HINT - Keep borders well
fortified. Don't spread
your armies too thin, but
don't move all the armies.
Leaving armies behind can
make it more difficult for
another opponent to walk
through you.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
