I noticed that in more recent images of the game testing, the board has gone from a square grid to a hex grid. What prompted the change?

After playtesting at a convention it was made clear that squares didn't fit the theme: movement was a bit clunky and whilst strategic, attacks were made in straight lines and it was felt that shooting shouldn't be so inflexible. The game worked fine with squares, I had plenty good feedback prior to the con, but it works better with hexes. Yeah it was a pain to change but the game has evolved into a better beast for it!

I've had to drop the rolling road mechanics like thunder Road for now as the hexes don't quite work as it is, but I fully intend to go back to it later
