Does anyone know the size of the original character counters? 1/2", 3/4", etc....

Most of them were about 3/4" square.
But there were also half-size and smaller counters to represent smaller beings, dropped weapons etc., and the three-hex triangular two-headed giant!

I would add that my recollection is that the size wasn't necessarily consistent between the base game and the various microgame adventures that could be purchased to go with it (Death Test, etc.) I wouldn't sweat the exact size.

It all depends on how good you were with a sharp knife - we could only dream of die-cut counters in those days.

Thanks! I'm thinking about having new counters printed out for the game.

You should probably think about printing them out a bit smaller than 3/4" because I seem to remember that it was a snug fit in the hexes - unless you're a counter-corner-clipper.

But be careful, I still have a scar on my left thumb from some inattentive cutting of those strip counters!

That was the work of Pat Hidy, who did the counters for the Death Test series. They were quite good. My favourites were the giant with the club and the cutlass-carrying octopus.

I liked her work in Sticks & Stones too.

Yeah, the Death Test counters were my favorite too. I loaned them out at some point, to whom I don't remember, and they never came back.
