ITP: empire - the wargame of the century

Package: wnpp
Version: N/A

I've packaged empire (aka vms-empire), a turn based console strategy game.
There two parties, the player and the computer. Of course There Can Be
Only One.

He rewrote the program in 1987/1988. Not so long ago ESR adopted the
program, added color and tweaked it a bit.

Version seems to be a GPL 0.something-preprepre. It is free.

The upstream tarball can be found at ftp://locke.ccil.org/pub/esr/.

A debian package can be found at

I'll ask someone to upload it soon.

PGP encrypted messages preferred.
