Challenge Issues

This game has some violence, but is largely tame. Still users may be offended by some of the historical discussions within the game. We always urge users to choose items that are right for them. Users may request that items be reconsidered, but the board reserves the right to make a final decision after review. The library supports the ALA Bill of Rights and thus discourages censorship.

Reason for Inclusion

This game will appeal equally to young men and young women. It is fun, has varying degrees of difficulty, and has endless opportunity for play.
