Picked up the Print & Play of Codex after hearing lots of great things from Kickstarter backers who received their physical copies, and I am HUGELY impressed by this game. Combines lots of my favorite mechanics into one sweet package.
However, I noticed something a little strange – in the Print & Play Patrol Zone file, the Squad Leader is positioned ahead of the other 4 positions. While this makes sense thematically, it doesn’t translate very well into utilizing table space efficiently. You end up with a bunch of empty space in front of your patrol zone.
Am I missing something and there’s an actual advantage to this layout, or should I try my hand at modifying the file to place a different slot in the back (or, perhaps do a 3-2 layout, or some other variation)
