Home Forums General Game Design Pre-measurement Reply To: Pre-measurement


Personally I ‘m not keen on pre-measurements…..so much so that my ‘in-house’ rules often allow a variable into the movement distance…….it can be a ‘bonus’ die roll of distance or a complete 2d6 of indeterminate distance…much hilarity when the panzerfaust gunner charges into the street all of 2-3 inches of or when the Rangers fail to make it into the next building…….

With games of DBx type and a more rigid style, part of the fun is not knowing if the troops can/will close as expected or in the ‘turn time’ ………charging home before the enemy can get off a panicked volley or those crucial seconds allowing a calmer, controlled volley to empty saddles………
