Being a miniatures gamer with very limited spare time between family and work time, I am always looking for wargames that have a certain depht but don't require regular practice. I tried the ASL starter kits, but there are too many details and abbreviations to remember for long time playing intervals.
Valor and Victory looks promising in this regard. So I printed the rulebook and started to read. One of the first paragraphs I stumbled over was 5.31 Command Phase. "Player A automatically rallies all of his pinned units, flipping them to their face-up, unpinned side."
Looking at the unit counters available, there is no pinned or unpinned side. Will there be counters with a "pinned" side, or should we use a separate marker for pinned units (in this case, paragraph 5.31 should be adapted for clarity).
Don't take me wrong: The rules and the components look really great, I would love to try them. Just want to be sure about assembling the components.
As I see your question's been answered I'll just say that this IS an excellent game and doesn't slip into the "too hard" realm, so you've made a good choice.
