These new markers are fully punched and have rounded corners. These "features" have taken the "fun" out of cutting out the counters with a hobby knife to avoid tears and layer separation. These counters have also made obsolete the corner rounder I purchased. I no longer will have to spend hours in counter prep.

What is a hobbyist to do????

At least on my copy, the centering is good.

One thing I noticed is the cutting is normally from the front to the back of the counters. On my copy, the counters were cut from the "back". For example, the stress counters normally start with "1" on the "front" with all even numbers on the back. My copy has the opposite.

But it's all good.

This hits my OCD pretty hard. I consider it to be some kind of a victory just to be able to play a game like this. I was "trained" on SPI and Avalon Hill games that the front of a counter was determined by the rounded edges (so trapezoidal counters are just a nuisance?) but am trying to learn new tricks.

Personally, I am of the opinion that the Chinese print industry is trying to subvert the US wargamer market. Next up will be rulebooks printed back to front!

Please note that this post was intended as satire - a form of humor.
