This hit home within days of the change of the calendar when using a piece of thick card I have been employing to primer figures....for 40 years now!
I remember buying cheaply (I must assume) the board game 'Alexander'. This was in 1978 in my junior year in high school. I never caught that particular bug and so have not acquired the taste for wargames using chits and hexes. Obviously I thought the board very sturdy and so it was put to "better use".
But FOURTY BLEEPING YEARS?! Ugh. It might well be the oldest thing I still own......
