FAQ

What will I get for my money?

The game :) That means a detailed character sheet, a diary which will be a constant companion and refuge for you in your game, constant care from the organizers, food, cool locations, costume, guns and ammunition.

What's the difference between price levels?

From the point of view of the game, they are all the same. The higher price packages are meant for people who want to, and can, support the game. Their reward will be some keepsakes and a plethora of warm and fuzzy feelings.

Can women play soldiers?

Yes, there are roles of female soldiers in the game. No, it is not common.
In the standard run it will be possible for women to play male roles (and vice versa).

What's the difference between runs?

The standard run is aimed at more player comfort and a little less at authenticity. It's less physically demanding, the march is a bit shorter, and it allows cross-gender playing, for example.
The relentless run offers a more authentic and tougher experience: you will carry all the equipment you will use in the course of the game with you during the march; wounded soldiers will need to be carried for some time, etc.

I don't know anything about this historical setting; is the game for me?

If you are interested in topics such as "war", "love", "freedom" or "humanity", then yes. You will get the necessary basic overview from our pre-game materials and in a short summarizing workshop on site.

I don't enjoy crawling through mud and soldiering; is the game for me?

The game is not a military simulation; the war experience is a means, not an end. If you particularly hate mud and fighting, you can always play some of the civilians, of which there are plenty and whose game is just as interesting (doctor, nurses, POWs, field train...). However, if you find the thought of being in a military unit unpleasant in itself, it is probably not the right game for you.

Do you allow gender-swapping?

Yes, at the standard international run we do.

Should I expect starvation or sleeping in the freezing cold and snow?

No. Although starvation is a theme in the game, it definitely will not happen to the players. You will also not be in danger of sleeping without a roof above your head or freezing. And if the situation got unexpectedly worse and you, for example, become sick, we will be keeping an eye on you all the time and we can solve your problems.
