Re: Just a thought

N, Two points here: First Hesitant. Introducing new rules and mechanisms to new players has a "friction" all of its own. This increases if these players have been used to moving units as and when they wish or relying on a certain rules designed tactic, amongst other things. If a player is relying on...
