Don’t be fooled by age or looks. This may be the best ten bucks you ever spend!

Aspies make ferocious and diabolically innovative gamers.

Perhaps because cyberspace is the only playing field that’s truly level.

And because you don’t have to play ‘face to face‘.

If you’d like to try your hand at this tremendously fun activity, but are worried that you can’t handle too many things going on at once, there’s a solution.

It’s called turn-based combat.

As the name suggests, you and your opponent take it in turns to make your moves. Just like chess.

Unlike real time strategy (RTS) games, you can consider your moves as carefully and for as long as you wish.

Panzer General is arguably the best turn-based strategy game of all time.

I’m talking about the original. Not the many iterations it’s gone through since its release.

Though it looks desperately ‘old school’ compared to today’s frenetic, visually rich games, it has a standard of game play that you just can’t beat.

Give it a shot.

The skills you learn in this arena will serve you very well if you decide to go for more challenging fare (e.g. Company of Heroes) down the track.
