*sigh* I tried. I cross-posted to several lists including History of Wargaming, Napoleonic, 18 and 19th century discussion… as well as where I started, Historical wargaming… and nada. I finally posted this on Game Design, but again, no crossposting worked, though the TMP process gave the impression it did go through.

Perseverance is sometimes a virtue.

TMP has its quirks I know.

Usually picking the best single board avoids any disposing issues.
