c4-corner-cutterLike any group of hobbyists, gamers have their share of strange traditions. Among them are such habits as always putting dice down on the table high number up, and clipping the corners off cardboard war game counters. In support of clipping, the claim is made that the counters will more easily fit in to hexagonal spaces, or that cutting the corners will improve the counters’ durability. On the downside, it can be difficult to make uniform cuts. To help with that, though, Dave King is now selling a lucite guide he calls the C4 Corner Cutter. It’s only $19.95 and is available with a felt or foam base in a variety of colors.
