While at Game On I had a chance to see the hard core OCS/TCS and now BCS players cranking on a late stage scenario of BCS’s first title Last Blitzkrieg.
They had epxerienced some of the frustrations and challenges I faced solo. They however have over come!!
Above, Support Weapons counters are replaced with tiny dice much easier to use and to see what is going on.
The adaptation here for Support weapons counters to use dice, as the constant flipping thru chits or moving them out of the way is painful is a neat idea. They also had roster sheets which alleviated the pollard chit mess that can happen.
If you squint… you might see American counters… But they blend into the map. No divisional stripes. It really makes me wonder why not. I was told by 2 different playtesters that “there are not enough colors” to do stripes…” Fellas we all know the Gay Pride rainbow aint all the colors not dont we. The we have two colors.. then boxes..oh how about circles? But if you do play on VASSAL its easy! Just right click and hey presto your Division is identified.
I’d encourage the next iteration of BCS to be more physically user friendly than VASSAL friendly. Some of us game in the real world.
