I was chatting with a friend about this game, and he had what I thought was a great idea for an expansion.

I really like the basic idea of an inexpensive way to paly miniatures, and think the system has great potential for expansion.

He suggested "movement cards", ala Wings of War. Rather than saying a given unit can move X inches or whatever, unit classes have cards that show some maneuver as a arrow. You could represent speed, maneuverability, and nimblenees very nicely in this manner.

The only problem would be if units could move far enough in a turn to make the cards not large enough...

But the pontential is interesting, since it would allow you to make the movement of different units very ablity specific...

Another idea would be terrain, a terrain card set, even with some terrian spanning multiple cards, would be very nice.

One possibility to avoid overly large cards for movement, would be to do like is done in Crimson Skies (Wizkids vesion). In that game there is a deck of cards that show the possible moves that can be done and octagonal tokens that lay out the actual path on the board. Hopefully this image will make this clear.


Enjoy,
Tom
