Thanks Logain, I appreciate it, glad you enjoyed the batrep!
So we’ve already played the next game, so I have the answers to your questions handy right here 😉
Yes, the gaming area is 4′ x 4′. The rules want you to put the objective in the center of the mat, but that doesn’t seem like a far enough space to have to sneak across, so in both games we have placed the objective area at the far end of the table. This, no doubt, is partially to blame for our games taking so long, it’s just that I’m scared if you only have to go 24″ to get onto the objective, and only half the sentries are available (the other half, logically, would be guarding the opposite side of the objective), the game might be too easy.
Our second game was played on a 4′ x 4′ with objective on far side of the table and took about 3 1/2 hours. And it was BLAST! I’ll probably post next Wednesday or Thursday.
