  • Missing Counters For Out Of Print Wargames?

    Ever lose a piece for an old out of print war game? Or better yet, buy a game at a yard sale or off of E-Bay that is "supposedly intact"? Well i found a great resource tonight that can/may be of use to you.

    This website - http://www.isimulacrum.com/Scans.php has scans of hundreds of war game counter sheets. Print them out, cut them out, and enjoy!

    I guess every once in a while one of us is new to SimBase's url hehe.

    Most board gamers have known of them though for a while KG hehe. They are like Boardgamegeek, a required knowledge of internet location.

    But they don't function as replacement counters, but only an inventory service. If your counter is mono sided I guess you are in luck, but they don't show reverse side images.
    Life is change. Built models for decades.
    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

      Luckily, I've only lost one counter (that I know of), from my Raid on St. Nazaire game. On E-Bay late one night, I picked up another copy for dirt cheap, and voila!

      Now, with all the cool art software out there for you computer, I see folks creating their own home-made counters. I guess this would be the other logical fix...recreate it...but I guess it helps if you know how to actually use such a progarm

        They arent that bad. I have Paint Shop Pro 7 and after about a week of messing with it i could do simple things and after some time i have become quite accomplished with it. This is with no formal training and no instruction book. I actually am at the point to where i can do graphics for websites now, LOL. All this is from about 3 years worth of smashing buttons and figuring out "what does this thingy do?", Hehe.

          I'll have to give it a go. I learned a lot from smashing buttons too

          s you all can tell, I'm pretty new to the Forum. What do the gold stars and "enlightenment" thing mean/do?? I have to sit down and explore more about the site.

            Thats reputation.

            Once you fill up a line, you get a Star. Once your star bar fills up, you start getting a +1 ect. in brackets like this - [+1] under your name. I assume the numbers go on to infinity. The greater your reputation, the more well thought of you are by your fellow forum members. By the looks of things, after only 20 posts, you have made some good points with people here to have that high of a reputation already.

            To give out Reputation to someone who has helped you or said something you like, ect. you click on the Ying/Yang symbol in the upper right hand side of their post and a pop up menu will come up and you can choose between positive and negative reputation to geive and a message to attach to it as well. I should note that you may give positive rep to someone with out leaving a message and they wont know who gave it to them, but if you choose to hand out negative rep, you must leave a message and THEY WILL KNOW WHO SENT IT. Most people only give out negative rep in very rare cases.

            I hope that helps you out.
