The simple ideas are always the most effective!Posted: September 14, 2013
One aspect of Archduke Piccolo’s rules struck me as being simple, memorable, and effective … his use of normal D6s in place of complex combat dice.
So what had he done? Quite simply, he had used the patterns of the dots on the dice to signify whether or not the score caused a ‘hit’ on artillery, …
… on cavalry, …
… or on infantry.
In each case the NATO icon for each type of unit is shown on the left, and the relevant D6 die scores for ‘hitting’ that type of unit is shown on the right.
Like all the best ideas, it is very simple and very clever … and if possible, I am going to use it!
