The Game of the Generals, also called GG or GOG as it is most fondly called, or simply The Generals, is an educational war game invented in the Philippines by Sofronio H. Pasola Jr. in 1970. Its Filipino name is “Salpakan.” It can be played within twenty to thirty minutes. It is designed for two players, each controlling an army, and a neutral arbiter (sometimes called a referee or an adjutant) to decide the results of “challenges” between opposing playing pieces, that like playing cards, have their identities hidden from the opponent.
This Game is now on Mobile Apps, Android and iOS.
