Time Lapse Video: Axis & Allies 1942 SE Tournament Finals at Gen Con 2015 - Etiq
What is the purpose of the dice the players would sometimes place on a territory or the board throughout the game? They appear to be markers of some sort.
Referring to the 1942 SE time lapse video posted on the home page of A&A.org here.
After replaying it on slow speed, it appears that they are using dice as aircraft range markers and bomb damage. I hadn’t thought of using dice for range markers but it makes sense. More practical than using cardboard chits.
