Nifty Line of Sight Tools

So, if you play wargames on hex maps, or even miniature games on dioramas, you are familiar with sighting Line of Sight (LOS). LOS is when you draw an imaginary line from the firing unit (or center dot on a hex) to the target unit (or their center of it's hex). The tried and true method has been the...

Do you Re-box?

This has been a bugaboo question for me. I have some games that have issued expansions, some of which came only in large zip-lock-type bags that are sometimes a tad annoying in locating components....a bag full of small cardboard playing pieces can make game setup a laborious task.
