A few questions from first play.

I didn't think Airborne had village hexes. I thought they were town hexes, sometimes collectively referred to as villages.
... actually you Americans are probably the most dangerous people in the world. This is because you treat war as a job, and your culture has an excellent work ethic.

Matt,

Thank for the clarification.

We assumed they were villages. Is there a good way to tell the difference?

Apart from those on the Pacific maps, not really. The only village hexes on European maps that I recall were in Little Saturn. They were established by game special rules.

The maps where villages are explicitly shown are those with Saipan, Marianas, Kokoda (maybe Guadalcanal?), both Korean War games and Ethiopia. The representation is of a bunch of huts with orange roofing. Towns are typically filled with building that are square or rectangular. Villages have round buildings. The real tip though is the orange roofing. On some of the more jungly maps you may have to look closely.
No "minor" country left behind...

Guadalcanal has no town or village hexes. Indeed almost no man-made features at all. The closest thing to villages/towns are the Governor's House and the hospital on Butaritari.

Blocks or round is a good rule of thumb.

It would be 10 pages long because the colors changed so much over the years. Tongue

I'm okay with that. Smile

Does the published Counter Attack scenario booklet include examples of terrain types in the Special Rules at the beginning of the booklet? I know I added examples during development but do not know if they made it to the published version.
