The Game of the Generals, also called Salpakan (in Tagalog), is a turn-based strategy board game invented in the Philippines by Sofronio H Pasola Jr in 1970.

It is designed for two players and simulates armies at war trying to outflank and outmaneuver each other.

This old-school board game can now be played online at http://www.salpakanna.com.


Old-school/original version.


Electronic/online version.

Nah. But still good though. I actually miss it. The only problem is that you need an arbiter (3rd person) for it.
