Changing the order of counters in a stack

Postby 22sec » September 12th, 2012, 4:13 pm

Is there a value that can be given to counters to move them up or down when stacked with other counters?

Example, I have three counters stacked together in the same hex, and I want the piece currently on top moved to the bottom.

There is no simple way to modify the order at will, that I know of.

However, you can push any piece in a stack to the bottom with the DOWN command-key and to the top with the UP one. Anything more complicated.. you need trigger and global key commands to play with multiple UPs (and/or DOWNs), for example. Altgernatively, you play with Game Piece Layers (e.g. Bottom, Middle, Top) and dynamically assign the current layer to each piece.

If you always want the counters in a particular order when stacked, then
you could look at Game Piece Layers.

But I'm not sure if that is what you want based on the example.
For that, the commands barbanera describes may be more appropriate.
