I have this goofy idea to mount the old boardgames on magnetic plates, then put little magnets on the counters so they will stick to it. Then I can frame the boards, hang them on the wall, and stick all the counters to them. Works of Art ! I have yet to find any magnetic plates that will do the trick though.
I remember this from the 'OLD' days: we used simple 'steel' sheets w/ some sort of magnetic tape (can't remember what at the moment), but one could probably find it if one looks in the board gamers shops. I'm sure it's still there, eh? The problem with this is it's not a good solution to double-sided counters, requiring as it does the mounting on the tape with glue.
As I remember, there used to be an outfit that made magnetic 'holders' that one fitted the counters into, which made it all good (up to about 5-6 counters, at which point the stacks tended to be easy to knock over) but someone might have made better ones by now. Check 'em out for 'verticle mounting'.....
Just one of the things that being old gives you, LOL! Paper map sheets! Who'd have thought, eh?
