After you have cleaned yourself up from the experience of unboxing this stunner for the first time you will want to put some stickers on.

You read the designer notes.

You looked at the mini maps with blown up hexes. I bet I could fit 8 blocks in there if I needed to!

You skimmed through all the scenario setup guides…

Finally you decide upon a scenario and because you want to get going fast, you just decide to stick those stickies you need to stick!!!…. Try saying that 10 times fast.

Because the BULGE AWAITS YOU!!

I currently dont have a lot of room on my game table….Yes I know I said I just packed everything up that was a post I wrote 3 days ago. But I now have Hellenes and Blitzkrieg ’41 out to look at. So I am forced to squeeze the Bulge map onto my desk. I think it fits great:

Now about those stickers.

There is a handy guide for those who are nervous like me about putting the wrong darn sticker on the wrong block. See the big image below!

You can find it at the bottom of this page to download also. Fret not if you bought the standard edition. All the bonus extras that are printed on fancy expensive paper, and laminated can also be d.load for use, so you do not miss out on these neat play aids.

Plus since I picked up the Limited Edition I wanted to put the unique tank stickers on, and double triple check they are going in the right place.

Each division has its own tank icon in the LE!!!! Represented by the mainstay of the Divisions actual assets and some favorites. Very cool.
BITW stickeringAs you can see the stickers are color coded to nationalities referenced in the rule book. NICE AND EASY this time!

Another reason to support this company, they quickly adapt, listen to their customers and fanboys! 😉
