This is a brillaint game of strategy which in my opinion is perfect for players of games like Risk where the element of luck is truly giving you a hard time.
Each turn all players have a set time (minutes) to write down their commands for their troops (5-10 commands). Once written the orders are carried out and conlficts, withdrawals, unit upgrades and reinforcements can be deployed to subdue your enemies.
The object of the game is to conquor the entire board by having control of all the other players bases.
With no dice rolls it is down to you to understand the relevant power of each unit and move them in ways to deliver the maximum damage to your opponents.
The game does state plus 10 but i would be surprised if a ten year old could fully grasp the concepts needed to fully enjoy the game so i would reccomend 15 plus ideally.
