Dang, that's a lot of counters needing to be clipped.

Five sheets worth.

What?!? No cards to sleeve? Travesty.

Do you sleeve your cards, Bison? I never got into that,  not because I disagree but because I just don't see a need unless the game is played all the time.

"Conan! What is good in life?"

"To laminate charts, to clip your corners, and to hear the lamentations of Vance!"

No peace without Lutha!

I think I’m on the hook to teach a game to some kids tomorrow and I’m feeling like an area control game. So I’ll either be teaching them El Grande or Kemet. Or since they all have played some MtG, I’ll break out the cube and teach them how to draft and build decks from a seemingly random pool of cards.

Break them out, make some tea, and play some cards with the  missus. Try a few games of Winston draft. It’s a wonderful way to play.

The article is not the best description but it gives you the general idea. There are some good videos on YouTube demonstrating Winston drafting. The best part is as long as you have a small collection of generally equal numbers of cards for each color-you have all the card pool you’ll ever need.
