There are just bunches of games, where you have admin counters that lay upon the board, hidden amoung other counters or miniatures. Wouldn't it be great to prop those up? Another example would be a miniatures game, where you have tracking counters of some kind, to help with administration of your battlefield. A specific game example would be Memoir '44, where you have small cardboard badges to to denote divisions of troops.

Wargame Counter Stands are the perfect solution for all of the above.

One solution comes from Litko Game Accessories, who are one of the best sources for needs like this. (Click the link in the company name to go directly to the product in question). A set of ten for under four US dollars. Also, generally available on Amazon.com.

Principally designed for your 3/4 inch square, wargame, cardboard counters, these counters are held vertically by two layers of clear plastic, mounted on a clear base. The stands allow you to easily handle your counters, as opposed to laying flat on the table. The do
require assembly with glue, so keep that in mind....but it's easily done with any good modeling glue; the two vertical panels gluing into the circular base, in pre-cut notches. LITKO recommends our Craftics #33 acrylic cement for all of our acrylic plastic kits.
