Here is pictures of all counters (all nationalties) that have been trimmed down about 1mm with sharp pro-scissors the last 30 years.

Now I have, at least, a template on how to organize those counters, another thing I have been struggling with.

Also, consider this stuff:

It's my ASL best friend. You can put a ball on the back end of the tweezers (Gleaned that idea from Jim Holt). It's great for grabbing a hard-to-get counter or pulling a concealment counter off the top.

Or a very tiny dab to hold an overlay down. Also great for holding plexiglass in place. Plus, its reuseable. It'll last you a long time.

All I ever do is trim the little bits off the corners with a toenail clipper, never tried to round off the corners. [I'd botch the job]
I would rather spend a little for a new toenail clipper with fresh sharp blades and save money for the modules to come!

Really real men don't give a rat's a$$ about the counters and just read the rules.
I'm glad Darryl posted for the silent majority who play the game as intended (counters with ragged tree stubs and sharp corners :- ).

The 2.5mm clipper is actually the perfect clipper. The 2mm is too small and doesn't look as perfectly rounded.

The 3mm takes just enough extra off 5/8" vehicle counters to make them fit completely inside a hex, just. Nice when vehicles are side by side and keeps them from intruding on neighboring counters. :)

Unless you buy both 3mm is too much for the small counter.

I think the 2mm variant is best.


Hmm, obviously a matter of taste... ;)
