I’m sorry, 1942 is the edition I always play now and I had a brain cramp and thought they were priced at 16. It’s the price I think they should cost, but you’re absolutely right, they’re at 20 and so we never buy them!
Thanks for the responses guys. NIce to know the pieces are interchangable between games. I have played another game since and we all seemed to make lots of mistakes. An experienced player would smash a new person at this game.
smanifesto I will probably do exactly as you have done and get a pieces from other games. It was getting frustrating having to constantly look for new units and swap chips around. I’m also with you on customizing the game a bit. We already have a house rule that battleships have to return to a factory to be repaired at the start of your next turn when damaged.
