Quote from: Cyrano on August 17, 2015, 12:12:01 PMI assume here you're speaking of all formats -- digital and "analog" -- that use counters. In the case of the latter, I've got some of my favorites that I'll ferret out and share when I get home, but I will always have a squishy spot inside for the simple elegance of the "Panzer Leader" design. The notion that Tiller's Campaign Series might be getting an update to bring that aesthetic to the system makes me, well, moist.In terms of the former, Barth and I have had a running back-and-forth about the counter art, or lack thereof, in Tiller's Panzer Campaigns. He gives them demerits for only indicating unit type and forcing the player to look to the info box for more detail. For me, games like "Decisive Campaigns" and "War in the East" become an unreadable mess if I try to use the counters themselves for information. It's not that they're bad counters, quite the contrary; I think the layout of the former is particularly good, but I do not process information from a computer screen in a way that makes that layout work for me. Inevitably for me simpler will be better.*sigh*Panzer Leader...Best,Jim"Cyrano":/7)
