    I'm not sure it's a good idea to link the SG turns all that closely
the FT turns.  The FT turns will be equal to roughly 3 SG turns.  Just
comparison, the Beer Game only lasted 6 turns, with a full platoon on
side.  Even if we doubled that length, which is about all you can hope
to get
into 4 hours, we're still only talking about 4 FT turns.  For the FT
game to
have any impact at all, you're really going to have to peg their success
something other than the number of turns.
