The game is played out in front of you on a giant war table, and you use your hands to place and direct units as if you’re composing a symphony of battle. In the online play the other player is in the room with you, so you can watch them and even read their body language. If you want to try it out, there’s also Brass Tactics: Arena, a free demo with unlimited play against an AI on a single map.
