WHOM else would have *thunk* UPON as such, eh? So, basically you EITHER 'print out & mount' OR do likewise for your 'counters' with prying apart those "and then" proceed upon putting this onto 'mag-sheet' material for the counters, etc. and just "tack or tape up" the MAP where this is convenient somewhere on a 'fridge' and PLAY AWAY! As it happens to stand, then yes, 'moi' does HAVE some 'mag-sheet' in which to manufacture SOME few copies too, while I'm talking upon them 1/2-inch counters on thus.

I tried that once but the counters were falling off the fridge. My magnets were probably too weak or too small. I would be nice to play OGRE PBWIWSFTF (play by whenever I want something from the fridge).

oh, certainly, while the kind of which I possess is from back in 1987 when I printed them OUT as 'advertisement' giveaways, so this is around 3 or 4 times as thicker. This is small, squarish overall proportioned, so under 100 counters then overall? I'll have to accurately measure this on that then.

The original Ogre maps were on thick-ish paper, possibly too thick for the wimpier advertising magnets. The later, color Ogre maps were thinner. You an also get a low res Ogre map image from the sjgames.com/ogre page. The other solution is better magnets or paint the Ogre map on the fridge.

Unfortunately not an option, it's not my fridge.

I can't quite endorse buying your own fridge to play Ogre. Doesn't seem efficient.

You can but a $15 pack of 1/2" button magnets for your counters. That way they'll have a lot more grip and should work with any map.

You know what I hate? Stainless steel fridge doors that won't hold Ogre magnets.

+1 on THAT. SWMBO picked out a stainless when the old one died and I've been bummed since then.
