I joined this game because it is about time for a good old fashioned slugfest on rswgame

Seems to be full communication and a simple classic one

As a Tournament game, it's on a strict timed schedule. The turn will run on Saturday as scheduled. This is different from the "run the turn when all players have entered their orders" mode that you're probably used to from most other games.

A strict timed schedule has benefits and drawbacks. Some of the benefits are that it is easier for people to know when the turn will run, and plan to fit their own personal schedules (such as travel or work plans) around this if needed; there is also less pressure from other players for people to enter their orders in a rush.
