The base type and size should make sense in the rules that are being written verses what the gamer likes or dislikes. Trying to please the gamer is an exercise futility, because what the gamer doesn't like he will either change or put up with it if the people he games with want to use the system and the bases the way they are in the rules.

The group I game with, to avoid this issue has basically decided that they want a certain look for their black powder period games, and thus decided on a style and size, regardless of what the rules list. If someone shows up with bases done according to the rules, they still get to play.

POLL DESCRIPTION

In his new ruleset Across a Deadly Field, John Hill observes that "some gamers prefer square [stands] while others prefer rectangular," and that it creates a conundrum for game designers.
