Building Better Board games Together

Wartime is a “real-time” war game. Like in a real battle, he who hesitates is lost! In this game, you do not have to wait your turn or wait for your opponent to make a move. Whenever you want to make a move, just do it! Each player will use a number of sand timers to control their military units on the board. To either move or attack, a player must flip a timer to start its sand running. That unit may take no more actions until the sand has completely drained. Since the timers require different amounts of time to drain and since different pieces have different strengths, it will be important to manage which unit uses which timer.
