A very short post un-boxing comment (comments actually). I spend 1 hour cutting all the counters out of their sheet. I guess the clipping will go on a "do I need this unit for the current scenario" basis. I might have been spoiled by easier countersheets previously.
Rules layout is nice, figs in colour should help, it's quite difficult to clearly identify the units in B&W mode. Digital version of the rules (online pdf) is worse, the figs are unreadable.
Counters and map artwork are great. Very nice.
Rule 6.3 Boundaries. I can't see any yellow line on my map. I am wrong?
Rule 6.51. The first sentence doesn't make sense (to me): Use the General Records Track (GRT) to track printed on the map to track the current Game Turn... BTW where is this GRT thing? I don't see it on the map or on the player aids. Only track available is the Political Status Track.
This said I am very happy with the game, I have finally something better to replace the old Fleet ones (and harpoon is nice on a computer but as a board game, not for me).
