The simultaneous movement of all units might not sound like such a troublesome situation, but it's the source of much of the tension within the game. One can move all of one's pieces to aid another player at the same time that he or she moves all of their units against one.
The concurrency of moves is accomplished by having each player write their
orders in secret. Once all the players have written down their orders
and the current turn's clock has run down to zero the orders are uncovered and
performed all at once.
