I agree, very honest and informative review. The counters are a little screwy-looking for sure.

Bob, if you have a list of the rules shortcomings, send it to my wife who is now running TBP and she can see about getting things addressed (assuming the designer is willing as well).  O0

Thanks Jim. I've pretty much shelved it for now, especially in view of the comments made on the games BGG page (by the designer) stating that those rules are now being rewritten anyway. I did quote his statement in the review :-)

Quote.

"In terms of movement, I say do as you will with the rules because they have been rewritten for simplicity for the final edition of the rules (due to come out with a Perryville & Stones River double pack). If you want I will share those rules on here with you. Just let me know"
