Hi.In the boxed edition the game has a bag of blocks with light grn/dark grn/ 2 blue and 6 'tan' what are these used for? They do not seem to correspond to sticker counts for the nationalities, but would make sense to do so.

With the soviet stickers ALL the stickers from one sheet are placed upon the red blocks? Similar for the Axis force (barring the above)

I wanted to confirm this simple part of the game as I always seem to botch up stickering block games.

The block count is 317 and the sticker count is 318 so it would appear that there are stickers specifically for these blocks. I would also like to know the answer.

Yes, at the bottom right corner, the 2 Axis/Soviet turn tracker stickers go on the the 2 sides of the same TAN block.

Hope this is the answer you were looking for.

Thanks for that!
IT arrived VERY QUICKLY! Thank you for the prompt service.
Looks even better than the pictures.
Oh I see now it is listed in the page 4 which blocks are for what! PERFECT.
(once I stickered all of CC:A on wrong factions...sigh.)
I have a series of questions regarding the rules (printed version), I probably should print the current ones, but the printer is broken.
I will post shortly, nothing dramatic just clarifications.

The printed manual is 2.0, the current one is 2.1. You can read all changes here:
http://www.ventonuovo.net/downloads.htm
So I think that it is not necessary to print the complete manual again.

My pleasure.
Perhaps you did not find the web charts that I made for BITE until now:
WEBCHARTS 2.1
There you will find a detailed description of every unit and its block color.
