I will try to explain it as short as possible. There is really no winning of the game so in eccense the game could go on forever. First you would be assigned with a nation. those that start the game first has a list of nations they can pick from, Germany, usa, australia, etc. Each nation starts with 200 tokens. one token equels 20 million dollars in real life. Also each nation will have its own problems from previous leader, you will have to deal with each situation. Each nation will have its own natural resources, which you can trade with other nations. you need certain resources to build military units and currency. You will be asked to join the league of nations, like united nations of today.the chairman is the moderator of the game.you can accept or you can do whatever you want, you have control of your nation so you can do whatever you want. you have to set up a budget, so you can earn more tokens, like taxes. when you get your nation you will get a population total, and how much the other leader taxed them before you. if you join the league of nations once a week whoever is in it will have a live chat as to matters that needs to be addressed with each nation, just like meetings of the un. there are curtain units you can build mainly from a&a and you will use the game map for military conflicts. I did add some other units, like one is a spy plane that can fly over another nation. Now i am just starting this game so there will be problems in it, but they will be addressed as the problems present itself. I am in the prosses of writing all the rules and more about the game so if anyone is interested i can just send all the material to them. Hope this helps, hard to describe this game in short.
