Hey! You obtain or dig out a game that you've never played that has uncut counters and you paste your counter printout onto that!
Dude!

whistle "double down* with "doubled up" or however many layers of cereal-box materials, and they're generally larger overall than a print-out sheet.
Now, for 'cutting apart' these, I've gotten me one of them "really old school-style" paper-cutter sort! cool

Fazakerley me also.

I only use bran flakes packets, the extra fibre makes all the difference.

'perfect' kind overall for much smaller *batches*: bottom insert from packaging of Belgian 'chocolates'!

Seeing this thread got my wheels turning; it occurred to me that a plastic chocolates tray (e.g. Whitman's Sampler) might make a good counter tray.

...beware the unfortunate consequence of making them irresistible to household pets.

Yes, but there is nothing to keep them in their individual compartments when you actually store the game. Unless, of course, you don't jostle the game around too much when handling it.

I have accumulated to amass some massive variety sum of that, along with cookies, "Aplets & Cotlets" etc. packaging "and then?..." TURNOVER to create instantly 'complex facility', or 'Barracks', or 'Aerodome/Repair' installation, and so on. The latest 'find' of UNBEKNOWNST-origin for around Micro-Armor-sized uses were a clear plastic 'Fort' of futuristic design, such as what I'm reminded of by "Starship Troopers", or perhaps even as some "Dune" kind.

Yeah, or store something heavy like a game board over it. And it would HAVE to be stored horizontally. Or only used during game play.

whistle The separated pieces on the LEFT were cut apart from them two of the RIGHT with their whole, as a smaller 'snacks'-sized zip-loc with having 3 compartments now ought to suffice. UNKNOWN actual game for this.

For many years I used the plastic tray insert that came with the game Stratego. Should be easy to find in a thrift store.

Just be careful of the unobservant person who mistakes the Panzer Lehr Division for the Chocolate Messenger Boy.
