[BBTW I found the best solution for the dreaded mapsheets was a big 22 x 22" piece of plexiglass I found at a hardware store. Just slip the map and any game charts or CRTs under it and let the counters ride on top. Sure beat mounting the things on matt board as you could fold them back up and put them away. [/B][/QUOTE]
Yep. Absolutely the best solution for the "trampoline effect."
Hey, you guys, don't bemoan the fate of those games. Just browse through eBay on their board wargames pages. Many of your dusty old possessions are turning into collectors' items.
-AH 1914, unpunched, $78.
-AH The Longest Day, unpunched, $287.75.
-SPI Wacht am Rhein, punched, $191.50.
-SPI War in the Pacific, unpunched, $610.
-AH Titan, unpunched, $134.68.
They're worth more unpunched and in the original shrinkwrap (if they came that way), but you can still make some pretty serious change. I guarantee you that I'm hanging onto my shrinkwrapped AH Empire of the Rising Sun that I bought at a game store going out of business for $ 30. A copy in the same condition recently went on eBay for $175.
Of course, some of 'em would be like selling your kids (but my kids were never worth much anyway).
Put my faith in the people
And the people let me down.
So, I turned the other way,
And I carry on anyhow.
