    I’m a solo gamer anyway so I don’t know why this came to mind but it occurred to me of a way to avoid ‘blinds’ placed on the table to hide units that haven’t been located.

    Before the game start proper, first one player places his units which are going to be hidden, obviously without the other player watching. He then photographs all the units individually in situ preferably with something like a tablet with a nice big screen. He then removes the units and player two (assuming he is not completely mobile or attacking) does the same.

    When a hidden unit is located or reveals itself, the photograph is proof of location, thus there do not even have to be any blinds, dummy or not, to give any clue or false clue.

    Might need a bit of working out how to keep track of moving hidden units but I never heard of using digital images for this.
