One thing I've noticed on these old counters is not only do the corners need trimming, there also top and side bits that need trimming as well.

Nothing to trim yet - that's from my unpunched set.  :)

Nice.

Also, that looks like a handy table you have there.

Yeah, another Goodwill pick up for $15.  It folds up into a portable with handle.  It came felt lined like that too.  I don't know if it was meant to be a portable blackjack table or what but it's perfect for little games.

What size? I've thought about having some of my game maps printed smaller to fit my tiny game table.

I enlarged the hexes when I redrew this one to fit a 5/8" counter so it's a large map (44"x30").

The missus and I finished building our retirement home about a year ago. Specifically, I have my gaming room with a PERMANENT gaming table built into the office. The official rule is LEAVE MY GAME ALONE, even if it sits there for weeks. I have enough space, on three sides, for any game you can imagine. Main table is four feet deep, and I have to stand up and reach to get to it. More for rules, boxes, and extra stuff than actual board. Still, this works. Gotta have me that extra space.

^That's my ultimate goal. But in the meantime- tiny game table.  :(
