Yup, it's for the Australia Balance System. My own idea - players wanting to play the same side take four counters, numbered 0-3, for that nationality and then bid. Flip the counter over to the number side, and you have a winner.

Obviously, using a pen & paper is far, far simpler, but that is so gauche.

After all, this is Advanced Squad Leader! and "we need a counter for that!" ;)

Finally! The Poles are back in stock. Bigger and better than ever. The set has been expanded even further with another sheet of 1/2" counters. Compatible with PiF scenarios, there are new Polish infantry, as well as new 2nd Line Soviet and German (blue & SS black) infantry, plus 7-1 SMC for each nationality.

If you've already bought the original Polish set, you can purchase the new sheet, PO3, separately.

The current Polish nationality set now includes all three sheets.

Link to The Store in my sig.

Yes, these extra German/Soviet counters are specific to the Poles (because of PiF). I have no space to incorporate them into the other nationalities.

Thanks Alan, I think Olli has ordered me a sheet with his current order. Very good of him 👍
