    How long do you figure this game would take, including the teaching?

It would easily play with six (two teams of three), and that's probably the best number, but up to 8 can play nicely together (well, the game plays nicely, but it is a war game).

Ideally, if at least one other experienced player signs on, we'd have a couple of overall commanders and some field generals. BUT, you do not need to have any experience to play, I'll be happy to teach 7 brand new players if that's who's interested. For anyone who's played the game, liked it, and would like to learn more, this is a good opportunity to do that as well.

Mainly, I love this game, loved my one exposure to the team game, and don't have lots of chances to round up a bunch of others to play, so I'm hoping to get one together at Unity. So, if anyone is interested, or wants more information, let me know.
