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.
CAN WOMEN PLAY SOLDIERS?
Anybody can play any character regardless of gender. There are roles of female soldiers in the game, but they are not common - you cannot expect you will be sure to get one.
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. The game is not historical reenactment.
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...). However, if you find the thought of being in a military unit unpleasant in itself, it is probably not the right game for you.
SHOULD I EXPECT STARVATION OR SLEEPING IN THE FREEZING COLD AND SNOW?
No. Although starvation is a theme in the game, we will feed you and you will be allowed to bring any snacks you want. A logistical issue with food may happen, so the snacks are recommended, but we don’t want you to go hungry. You will also not be in danger of sleeping without a roof above your head or freezing. And if the situation unexpectedly gets worse and you, for example, become sick, we will be keeping an eye on you all the time and we can solve your problems.
