I'm confused about what constitutes a 'Town' for the purposes of terrain effects.

The terrain Effects Summary Chart shows 'Town' as a yellow-coloured hex with little buildings in it. The map shows these yellow-coloured hexes and the town name in a larger font (see Noville below).

There are also other hexes showing other types of urban terrain, but these also feature other terrain in the hex (eg: broken or clear), and the area name in a smaller font (see Berlogne below).

So my question is, are areas like Berlogne (see below) a 'Town' for the purposes of terrain effects (defender doubled), or is it a clear?

Nathan,

The Maestro has answered. The hexes are defined by the background colour, hence Noville is definitely a town hex, whereas Bertogne would be regarded as more of a village in those days.

This is a great game and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Regards,


Jim
Est. 1949
