The Colonel Blotto Problem proposed by Borel in 1921 has served as a widely applicable model of budget-constrained simultaneous winner-take-all competitions in the social sciences. Applications include elections, advertising, R&D and more. However, the classic Blotto problem and variants limit the study to competitions over a finite set of discrete battlefields. In this paper, we extend the classical theory to study multiplayer Blotto games over arbitrary measurable battlegrounds, provide an algorithm to efficiently sample equilibria of symmetric "equipartionable" Generalized Blotto games, and characterize the symmetric fair equilibria of the Blotto game over the unit interval.
