So, ok, Im not the brightest light bulb in the pack. But besides the clean appearance, what is the major benefit of clipping the counters?

I assume clean appearance and perhaps easier handling...less apt to get damaged.

And what tool would be considered the grail of counter clippers.

I read a little through the forum but Im still rather lazy when it comes to scrolling through pages of data.

Thanks to all you counter clipping war-gamers...and maybe a few that consider it unnecessary

It is easier to move clipped counters on a crowded map without catching and shifting other ones.

They clip their counters because some men just want to see the world burn.

A clipped counter is an affront to god and nature.



Spoiler (click to reveal)
Not really, it does feel nicer without those edges. I dont clip though, it seems a big extra hassle after punching out. I just wanna play!


Wait didnt we already do this thread?
