Published by Megacon Games this morning is the set up video for recon.

This goes through the set up of the gaming board office & setting up the MERCS Player Boards. It shows the double sided tiles, explaining that each side is themes & has a different look.
There are two extra single tiles so that no board every has to be the same.

I'm not sure if I can post the video here yet, but if you search for MERCS Recon Setup you'll find it.

With so many tiled map games having a set layout for each mission, it's good to see that this game has three main rules to follow to create an office layout that is unique and different.

I'm looking forward to the play through videos coming soon!

Anyone else bummed by the dice? They look like crap. I really liked the white/color dice that were being used throughout.

Actually I like them. Similar to SW:IA. The ones throughout the prerelease demos looks like generic white dice with labels. So these looks like an improvement to me.

I like them. Easier to see at a glance. I'm guessing it was more cost effective to make them solid colors, and more durable.

I wouldn't want the white ones if they were stickered. Also, if they were white and the colored sides were painted, then the paint could wear off.

To me, the original ones looked like they had the negative space engraved out and coloured. I mean that would be a very expensive prototype & I do remember somewhere MCG saying that they used stickers, but I liked the white edge with a white icon & the rest coloured.

But I do see why the dice is coloured the colour it is meant to be with the icon engraved out & filled. I do think, and this is only a screenshot from youtube that was taken by another backer (credit where due), the icon seem small.
