Yeah, a virgin sheet of counters is just lovely.
I have boxes and boxes of board games in a cabinet, including nearly mint copies of Pacific War and Empire of the Rising Sun. I used to buy games, thinking that I'd eventually meet somebody somewhere that enjoyed playing them. That never happened.
The last time I played a serious board wargame probably was early in my college years, when there was a group that occasionally played Avolon Hill's Third Reich.
In the summer of 1984, I lived in a small, un-airconditioned old mill house in Union Point, Georgia, while working for a timber company. I had no television and didn't know anybody in town. After work, at night, I listed to the Atlanta Braves on the radio and either read books or played solo matches of Gettysburg by Strategy Games. That was fun.
Ah, the good ol' days.

In every party there is one member who by his all-too-devout pronouncement of the party principles provokes the others to apostasy. Nietzsche
