Great game design makes the complex simple, replayability maximum, and abstraction credible.

It’s not how well you roll that counts but how well the dice suit the game.

Hi, I picked up this game today from a retail store in Australia and have noticed that all my counter sheets are labeled “Planche” and the text on sheets 3 (top) and all of 4 are in French.

My rules are English and the Player Aid Charts are bilingual. Should my counters be English too?

For example I have counters called “Attaque”, “Victoire" and “Loyaute”. I don’t know what “Trashison” is!

Beautiful game otherwise.

Thanks.

My counters are Japanese!

Actually, they are exactly like yours. I bought the French edition or so I thought, but the rulebook I got was in English. No big deal.

Trahison means treason or betrayal.

I wrote to Hexasim and got an almost instantaneous reply.

There is only 1 set of counter sheets for this game, so the French nomenclature will be found in all boxes.

As the rules then go on to refer to some other components and terms in their Japanese, what we have here is a true example of globalisation in wargaming

Very impressed by the customer service I received. Merci.

I confirm there is only one version of the counters.

Symbols instead of words, symbols...
