Building control and marking of building control is painful, clumsy and difficult in Manila.

Multi level, multi hex buildings which are VC necessary.

As No Quarter is in effect the Japanese must be rousted from each location.

Some buildings are extreme. The hospital has 68 locations, 51 that count for building control.

With opposing units, level and fortified markers, minefields, OBA and ACQ counters stacking is an issue.

I don’t remember this being as much of an issue in previous CG, although there are plenty that I don’t own.

I can live with the stacking, but what’s driving me nuts is marking control. I’ve tried marking, next to the VC building control of each level (i.e I put an American control marker on a cellar counter when all cellar locations are controlled by the Allies) I’ve tried rotating location markers to indicate which levels are controlled in a hex but I’m yet to find a workable solution.

What I think may work is just to make a sketch of the building and to keep this to one side and mark off control on that.

Does anyone else have better ideas?

Critical Hit got it spot on for the Berlin Module, they had separate print outs for each of the levels of the Reichstag.

Perhaps...clip a set of cellar and level counters, or mark some green on the edges to indicate American control? These could be placed in each hex as control is gained. Of course there still leaves ground level to be marked.
