There are two modes of play, basic and advanced, with the advanced throwing in more rules, and the game is turn-based and each turn is divided into an order and execution phase (plus and "advantage" phase). You issue orders such as maneuvers, targets, what weapon to use, etc. in the order phase and watch the execution in the execution phase.
