the company went down years ago. their webpage - also gone - discussed the game at great length, i printed the whole thing out and it runs more than 30 pages i think. at some point i was in fact planning on scanning all of them so that other people could see them. the problem is that they were printed in black and white, and as you can see from the diagram on this page, color is essential. so somebody (probably not me) would need to figure out what was supposed to be what color and at the color in using paint or photoeditor or whatever. <P> at any rate, the folder with the printouts is packed away in a box somewhere so it could be awhile before i can find it and get them scanned (i don't own my own scanner either). <P> the game is quite interesting and play is very complex. a friend of mine contacted the company, which was based in pittsburgh, he wanted to know how they were differentiating the regiments, and they told him colored rubberbands. which means making your own set is probably not too difficult.
