One of the suggestions made during yesterday’s review of Phil West’s Budget Battle wargame rules was that the game would play more smoothly if there was a set of tokens to identify units that have already acted during a turn.
Since we plan on doing a Pirates vs. Ninjas battle report using these rules in the near future, we thought we may as well go ahead and design those tokens, which can be downloaded here, or through our Free Downloads Page.
Most of the tokens are round, and one inch across. They can be cut out with scissors or, with minimal investment, punched out with a 1″ round scrapbooking punch. We often buy 1-1/4″ steel washers, then attach our paper tokens to the washers with glue sticks for long-term durability.
The tokens represent figures that have already moved, already shot, or already moved and shot during a turn, as well as tokens that identify pirate figures that carry grenades or ninja figures who are considered hidden. The second page features a cut-out template that accurately depicts a flamethrower’s arc of fire, so it is easy to see which enemies nay be affected.
Did we leave any token concepts out of our design? Let us know in the comments, and we’ll update the document!
