Default Mars Attacks Ogre Counters?

I'd love to see "Mars Attacks" variant chipboard counters.

Ack ack ACK ACK!!

It's a start, although I need to get myself the right font for Ogre.

OUTSTANDING! Thanks I think I'll them a higher attack say a 3 or 4 if you look at what they did in the movie with their "Death-Rays" or on the 1962 trading cards.

What you actually want is checkbook

I have a slightly modified version of Checkbook I created that cleaned up a couple things, but checkbook will get you most of the way there right out of the gate.

I will also mention that SJG gets a bit guarded when you talk too much about other companies IPs, so this thread will probably be short-lived.

What, may I ask, needed to be cleaned up. I'm sure you can't distribute the modified font file itself, but what you did to it should be fair game. :)

I find Monotype OCR A to be a reasonable match. I got it free with some old Microsoft product.

Actually, I pretty sure I can (what I can see in the font file suggests it, anyway)

I added the following in my own description, too
Quote:
Font Inspired by the Steve Jackson Games classic counters for Ogre. Based on a Modified version of the Checkbook font
The main thing I tweaked is positioning of a couple characters (the angle of the "/", removed the dot in a couple letters, for example) and it doesn't have a "-" (hyphen) so I added one (for things like the GEV 4-3 movement)

OK, if the font you have is distributable, I'd love a copy. Not sure if you can post it someplace public for all to download, but if all else fails email works too. In any event, thanks for the info!
