So I decided to join in with the Pony Wars crowd and I bought the newly published Baccus reprint. I have never played the rules and I am completely taken in by them. So I decided to construct the table as described on pages 39, 40, and 41. I am having some trouble figuring this out. I am not the brightest guy on the planet and that may be the problem. It appears to me that boxes 48,49,50,51 are missing on hill edge sections #1, #2, #3, #4. Also boxes 1 and 20 are missing on hill edge sections #4, #5. And finally boxes 70, 71, 72, and 73 are not present on hill edges #5, #6, #7, and #8. I have no idea what I am missing?

Two other board questions for anyone in the know. How wide should the 3 "Buttes" be that are used to form the passes? I am interested in how wide they are on the hill edge side. Finally it would appear that there is some "Dead Space" on the left and right of the Fort on the long table edges. Anyone know how many inches that is before the deployment boxes start. For those with the new rules that is the photo on page 39 the space where the "C" is marked and the number 21 box begins. I hope this makes sense to someone out there!
Thank you for any help!

I can email you a copy of the diagrams in the original rules describing the able if that would help – I'm assuming you've bought the recent re-release – which I've not seen so it may be the same.

That would be really nice of you BillyNM. Yes I have the new reprint just got it a week or two ago.

Thanks again!

I plan on building that table also. Not going to use that number system though. Going to use a D20, 8 marks on one side, 4 on the end then 8 on the other side. Should work just as well.
