Alternate Rulers,Measurements

Postby MechaBuster » Thu Jun 06, 2019 12:02 am

I was wondering if anyone else does a ruler substitution? I don't have the pieces to make one. The units seem to measure out to around 1.75 inches. Can anyone else verify that for me? I'm thinking a flexible 24 inch ruler would work, but what would you recommend? I'm using 7P scale, my chubs are standard size and everything is scaled to them. The table I'm using is 36x48 inches, so if I use 2 inches per unit, making direct fire range 16 inches, it seems to me like artillery will be practically useless in a 3 player game. Any feedback from the veteran players on this would be appreciated.

Just use 8 single inches on whatever ruler you have.

A Ruler measures roughly 13.125" long. You lose 0.125" in the overlap.

That's not enough to affect game play I wouldn't think. Thanks for the advice.

You can build one from other LEGO parts. My first ruler was just a long set of 2 × whatever plates overlapping, and then a 1×2 every five studs. The hinges aren't necessary, just useful.

How did I not think of that? Thank you for the idea.
