A grid of offset squares for the Portable Wargame

I have tried squares and I have tried hexagons so I thought I would try something different-
I set it up using a paper board ,some wooden houses and my late 19th Century/Early 20th Century Scandinavian armies using Airfix 20mm plastic soldiers. Not to mention an elk for local colour.


  1. Tradgardmastare,

    I'll be interested to hear how you get on with a grid of offset squares. I've never got on with them, but I know other people who swear by them.

    All the best,


  2. Yes, Robert, my experiences exactly. There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't function exactly like hexes, which is exactly what they replicate, so I am guessing it is purely a mind-set thing. You would think that due to their simplicity to create as opposed to hexes, they would have been the natural form for grid designers to turn to, yet hexes have become an almost standard grid format.
