It would be nice if the victorious piece when one takes another stays visible up until the next move. Right now, if my Sergeant hits a bomb or my opponent's Major takes my scout I just see the winning piece for a short moment. If I am distracted at that moment, I might even miss it. Thus, if the piece stays visible until I do my next move it would help my memory a bit more. :-)
With the old board game you could always ask your opponent to show the piece again before you take your next move.
