Breaking the rules

There is one clear advantage tabletop games have over video games: house rules. House rules are deviations from the standard rules that are (hopefully) agreed upon by those participating in a game session. They might involve large changes, minor tweaks, or simply a particular interpretation of the standard rules. They might aid in simplifying the game, or they may add new types of dynamics and challenges. With tabletop games, and house rules, you can play the game the way you want to play it.

With this in mind, we have adopted a policy of keeping letter-of-the-law restrictions to a minimum in Battleplan. Battleplan will do less of rules enforcing and offer more of rules reminding.

We begin observing this policy in today's release by allowing duplicate Unique units in a Heroscape army or a HeroClix force. For example, in Heroscape it's not uncommon for some players to treat Zettian Guards as a Common Squad and have several of them in their army. Now Battleplan will allow that army to be created.

The half gray/half green "add" button is a visual indication that while adding a duplicate is allowed by Battleplan, it isn't allowed according to the game's rules.

Have fun breaking the rules!
