Let Our History Get It’s Game On!
This could be an interesting game; I mean as of right now we don’t know exactly what’s going to be in it but it does sound fun! Who would win between a Ninja and a Centurion? Or instead of just basic military groups, would it be the generals and leaders of that era leading the charge? Alexander the Great versus Genghis Khan! I can’t wait to see what this game is going to be like!
