A few weeks ago I receive Combat Commander: Mediterranean. Ok, I can manage to clip the few thousand chits in the game. No problem!

Fast forward to Christmas. I'm still working on the chit clipping when a box from GMT arrives. It's a box full of Command and Colors Ancients Expansions 2 & 3! Oh crap! There's about 20,000 stickers to apply between the two!

So here I sit with about 80,000 chits to clip and another 10 million stickers to apply (yes, the math is correct). When did GMT get so mean!?! Did they get coal for Christmas or something?

Mean? I think not! They're doing their best to keep everyone safe on New Year's Eve by lkeeping them home clipping counters and putting stickers on blocks. We should commend them for their contribution to society!

Nothing seems difficult to me after I punched out every counter in ASL Beyond Valor. I used a cutting board and an xacto knife. Took forever.

Sticking C&C: A was quite a challenge too. I cant wait till my copy of the first expansion arrives (yeah i'm a bit behind).

You're not required to clip counters. devil Doesn't CC have large hexes anyway?

I don't usually clip my counters, but I do use a razor blade to cut them out of the sheets so they don't have those annoying dog ears.

If I were to do it I'd clip them by hand while watching TV using a nail clipper. Use of a jig or razor means no tv and then its just work.

Good thing you didn't order Asia Engulfed also. At least you showed some moderation unlike others I know.

I did 3 block games in 2 days a while back. Gettysburg: Badges of Courage, Victoria Cross and Europe Engulfed. Talk about sticker shock.

You just need to get into a mathtrade where you can pick up a "punched but never played" game in trade for something like Apples To Apples from a gamer who realizes he was way over his head with GMT games. Let others do the work for you.

BUTCH UP PEOPLE!

Are you wargamers or Euro-girls?

Punching counters and applying stickers is what we do. If you can't handle the presure go play some dainty Euro game with little wooden cubes.

What's the next complaint ... paper cuts from the nasty mean maps?shake

Your right...

You punch your counters and say: They're all punched Sir... Can I punch somemore Sir? My Stickers are all applied Sir... Can I apply somemore Sir?

And then, take your cards an dices and start kicking some ass...

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Chad, you're supposed to buy a used copy from someone who has so many blisters they can no longer play the game!
