I was going to buy OverText but I didn't know what to say with it!

Nice job, Leland. The maps look great - I can't wait to play on them.

So, they are going to be tan instead of green? Why?

Asthetics. Why would you have a European map look like it is in Algeria? It ruins the suspension of belief.

Interesting. Is this based upon knowing the base percentage of European ground that would appear green instead of greenish-tan from 1000ft during summer campaigning season? Or is it because "other tactical wargames use light green as a map base so you should too"?

Would you be similarly displeased with a wargame on European battles utilizing a green-based map if the scenario being played took place at the height of winter in northern Russia?

Sorry, I was trying to pass on constructive criticism. I'm sure that if the game issues with tan maps, others will have issues with it, I won't be the only one. It's called feedback. Nothing more.

No problem, Eric. And I'm sorry if my response came off rather standoffish. For what it's worth, the maps you see here on BGG aren't exactly how they look on my (or Leland's) computer -- the tan base does have a slight greenish tinge to it. Probably has to do with the conversion from CMYK to RGB color spectrum.

I think that when you see one of these maps laid out in front of you on the table, it will "work".

Cheers, sir.
