The counters are a VAST improvement.
Whats up with the cards? Are they for activation?

That is exactly what I thought with regards to the counters!

Yep. Card deck instead of chits in a cup.

Also note no unit designations on the counters. Just the coloured strip to match with formation cards. makes it easier to change up formation names and other attributes.

I guess that will save on counter count.

They're not going to be able to do "upgrade kits" for the old games, right? I think David said they had to make too many changes to be able to retrofit the original games. Certainly seems like it based on those pics.

Yes I think that's right. Rules have changes, maps have change, etc. Even the values on the counters have swapped locations.

Looks great! Just tell me Jar Jar Abrams isn't involved in this 'reboot'.  :whistle:

Not a big deal really to buy new. I loved the old games, but they were not without their flaws.

He was consulted about a time travel plot, but LnL ultimately passed.

Given how much stuff I play on mobile throughout the day, I doubt that.  But traditional tabletop wargaming?  Yeah, you probably do
