EGG: I tried your option #4. There’s not room enough in the game box, as far as I can see… so it’s gotta be a split-box solution, or 6 (smaller than AAPac40) unit boxes!
I tried it and it fit… I must have been rushed and didn’t check the smoothness of the bottoms meeting.
Well, this definitely provides a pickle then. Basically some nations will be in the same box or the boxes will have to be smaller.
The first option is annoying because there’s no dividers in the dashed boxes and mixed armies are going to be even more annoying than trying to tell fighters apart from TacBombs.
The second (smaller boxes) is going to be a nightmare as I image Germany to have a massive amount of set-up. That means smaller writing or something similar.
Damn your eyes you chimps! Stick to typewriters and stay out of shipping!
