With a cheat sheet on the side for new players and those of us with failing memories, sure.

Eh, I have the large "Classic Counters" set for that 'old school' feel.

I think the last time I looked at the stats on an ogre counter (besides relearning the SHVY stats) was during the Carter administration.... Except for INF of course.

There is a logical progression:
1) counters
2) image only counters
3) vertical "flats" done in paper ("JuniorGeneral.org"). These are just double-sided image only counters on their edge.
4) Minis

So if you remove the text, why not make the images bigger? Seems like the next logiical progression. Just my $0.02.

3a) ditto on clear plastic. These can look really quite good Ė assuming the thing is something essentially vertical rather than horizontal. See for example https://coopgestalt.files.wordpress....5/img_3174.jpg

Ironically enough, Ogre used as an example in a Make: Article :-)

Love the binder clips!!! You can get them in different colors besides black, right? That would be nice too...

This could be a legit application for 3D gaming components which SJG is not currently supplying (particular buildings, etc...). Of course, the moment we can buy SJG approved minis, we all promise to enthusiastically buy them!

Oh, and instead of the shrink stuff, you can always just buy clear shelf paper at the dollar store and use that for "laminating" the counters.
