POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in Slingshot magazine, WAB 2.0 designer Martin Gibbins mentions a rule change he contemplated for the current edition but did not make, as he felt it would be too much of a change: how skirmishers operate.

...the movement of many individual figures does tend to slow down the game somewhat, and players tend not to apply all the rules for skirmishers correctly a sure sign that something would be better altered.

Did Martin make the right decision, to leave skirmishers under the rules as they are?
