<Best Player Aid Idea 2014 Award Winner>
(sorry, there's no non-rules place for me to put this, so I put it in the Tactics rules area)
I got a head-start making accessories for Tactics during playtesting, and it’s time to start posting them up so others can use them if they’d like. I’ve updated my Tactics site with three files:
If you don't have the minis but would like to have something 3D to push around the table while playing, maybe give my 3D standups a try. You cut them out and glue them into a pyramid shape. The file includes all the characters from the base game and Uprising, as well as companions and other things like Ra's tornado. Also includes a 3-hex oversized Omnitron-V.
- Power card tuckpacks
These are just like the tuckpacks I made for GSF - they're slim envelopes you can use to keep each character's power cards separate and organized. Makes it really easy to grab a character's cards from the box at the beginning of a game. The back of each tuckpack has the info from the quick-reference cards - game phases and common actions.
- 3D Ambuscade traps
During playtesting it drove me nuts to deal with flat tokens all the time, especially for things like Ambuscade's traps which you had to flip over (not always easy to do with a small, flat scrap of paper). These, you print out, cut out, then fold the "arm" back over to form a kind of a handle (which sort of makes the trap look like a land mind). When the trap is triggered, you can easily lift the trap by the handle to see if it's a decoy or the real thing underneath. Now that we've got punchboard traps in the official version of the game, my 3D traps are less necessary, but I'm posting them up anyway in case someone's interested.
