About This Game

You’ll receive generous pay, room and board plus 30 days of vacation a year, all on the government's dime. We need soldiers, there is a war going on after all, but between you and me, the likelihood of you seeing actual combat is very, very low.

* Dads out there, I'm talking to you. You don't have time for grand strategy, but you might have time for this with proper scheduling. Each game should take around 1 hour or so.
