Dude I hate ASL counters with a passion.

For the time, I'm sure they were acceptable, the fact that new iterations are still being printed with them though is beyond ridicule.

They're about the only illustration counters I find acceptable.

That's a hellavalot of ASL counters. I wonder how long the line would be if you put every single ASL counter side by side?

Nah, I don't need that many ASL counters (two complete sets would be more than enough!). However, I'd be willing to take all the F&E counters in existence, you can never have too many of those....

What I just can not believe is how we possibly missed this one...
The Ythri
Metagaming made some good games mind you but for this one they went with this high-tech 2-color all-text barely-readable print that was behind the times for 1975. To boot the counters are anemically thin, and the die-cut is along the sides so good luck trimming them!

I just can not imagine a perfect storm of a worse set of wargame counters. Mind you the map (or maps) was none too hot either.

Enjoy.

EDIT: (because on thought I was reminded to dig back and compare to this due to the color scheme and the very texty nature) I think the above is even worse than the similarly-visualed...
Solomons Campaign (first edition)
...which at least has normal-thickness corner-chad counters with some useful symbology, as well as a readable type face (plus was a pretty good game if I remember that far back)

Wow, those Ythri counters look horrible, and a perforated die-cut, lol. Those suckers must be like magnets!

I am bumping this, consider this a virtual bump for the map poll too, because we have not had any action on this for over two weeks. Here we are at the semifinals waiting with great anticipation, and no new poll!
Are you preparing something really slick for the final four or are you ready to simply declare a winner or what?

Semifinals for both will begin in the same topic tomorrow.

I'm in the middle of a career change, and have been a tad busy.

Would those counters represent more people than the actual figures involved in WW2?
