POLL DESCRIPTION

Lentulus asks...

We often talk of games being "platoon" level, or "company" level, or what have you. I am not sure we all use the word "level" the same way.
Considering these choices, which uses the word level correctly? (Remember, these are just examples, the name of the game could be XYZ. Which most closely matches the way you use the word "level?")
Example 1

Lentulus plays BKC using one stand to represent one platoon. There are many stands on the table. BKC is a *platoon* level game.

Example 2

Lentulus organizes his BKC forces into groups of stands that represent battalions, and assigns a command stand to each. There are a number of stands in each battalion, and a number of battalions on the table. BKC is a *battalion* level game.

Example 3

Lentulus plays BKC games with several battalions on the table enough to represent a brigade, but not a whole division. BKC is a *brigade* level game.
