  • pennants-1 – Flags used to mark activated units.  Glue a golf tree to a base and wrap these around the tee securing with glue.
  • allied_blinds-1 – Here are some blinds to use for hidden placement/movement if you do not want to have a referee.  We have never used blinds before but it should work fine.  Assign one blind per unit and give each side a couple of dummies.  Move the blinds on the table and use normal spotting rules to reveal the blind.  If an element in a blind does a fire action only that element is reveal not all the elements in the blind.
