When playing my first games I was a bit overwhelmed by the number of possible results and the large amount of text under the CRT to explain all the details. There were 8 possible results, which each one needing more than 5 lines of text on average to explain the specifics.

I started sorting and eliminating redundant results. I came up with this CRT, which I now use more often than the original. The CRT is exactly the same, only (I think) easier/ faster to read.

What it basically does, is use the text in the table to note the losses, the background color to signify the retreats and the text color to mark if the owner or the opponent chooses the losses. This way, I reduced the text under the CRT from 5 lines per possible result to 5 lines total.

I also added a 'chance' line, to show the possible chances (x in 6) for the attacker to take a loss, the defender and the chance of a retreat result.



If people are interested, I can upload this as xls or pdf to the file section.

I never had difficulty with the original presentation, but this is a very nice condensation of the same information. Well done.
