So I'm very happy with my copy of Paratroop which I finally obtained. The seller (intermediate) warned me: "Eben Emal is not included, it's just two of the three". Yeah yeah. Still bought it.

I received the game and indeed, all Eben Emal counters are missing and the map is cut up in four parts: Crete map, Eben Emal map (missing), Red Devils map and Red Devil terrain key. Alas...

Then I checked the counters and all are present for the two games. But... the previous owner counter clipped all Turn 1 Red Devils counters. Luckily not any other, but this?...
Now, I planned on reproducing Eben Emal. I have the rules, I only miss the counters and board. But I'm strongly considering remaking the Red Devils too, because this...

Yeah, that's pretty bad. That the counters were printed off-center to begin with just makes it worse. I'd probably reproduce them too, and just keep the originals in a Baggie in the box for completeness' sake.

WOW! Those are bad! I have gotten some that were pretty bad but I must agree with your "counter mutilation" comment.

Maybe the OC* wanted octagons?

I believe the original owner hailed from Caprica.

You might be better off reproducing your own counters.

I think the original owner was a beginning butcher practicing his over the shoulder cleaver swing... probably using this:

Actually, these aren't clipped. This is the way step losses were handled in older S&T magazine games before double sided printing allowed you to just flip the counter.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

They're paratroopers - they're used to being surrounded by enemy clippers

It's beyond belief! Shouldn't there be a law forcing people to use corner clippers from Oregon Laminations?
