Summary

Just playing the game teaches strategy, tactics & logistics.

The Good

It makes you think & keeps you mentally agile & flexible with it's almost infinite possibilities. I created about 100 maps to play on. I got good enough that maps that came with game I played at 75-80 % difficulty with little trouble, but by map 100 had to lower difficulty to 45 just to survive (and that's just after making map).

The Bad

Could not find anyone to play against me. Got 2 cousins to try, but they didn't have a chance & gave up after about a half hour. Haven't been able to find version for IBM compatible. (The "Orkin" man sprayed junk in my Atari drives & my wife did not tell me until 3 months later) Game was in 4 colors & medium resolution, but I figured a way to have 6 players.

The Bottom Line

It's the greatest turn based wargame ever. Anyone who likes turn based strategy games would like it. Anyone who works/uses strategy, tactics & logistics on a steady basis could use this game as a training aid. (military, warehousing, transportation, ect)
