Hand-drawn wargame chit identification, scanner

The archive just acquired several hundred hand-drawn wargame chits.  Who made them for what?  I'm not sure.  These could be replacement chips for an existing game, or new chips for an existing game, or maybe chips for an entirely homebrewed game.  Who knows?  If you have any ideas please share.

Which leads us to the next topic:

We are halfway to a new scanner.  We need $140 more to get an over-sized scanner which will let us share images of stuff like these wargame chits.  You can paypal at ozark1 at hotmail dot com, or use a credit cared here.

Anything helps!

A Micro-Fundraiser for the Archive

The Play Generated Map and Document Archive needs a flatbed scanner in order to catch up with imaging our large documents.  The Mustek A3 looks ideal, but at $270+shipping ($179 for a refurbished one) we need some money donated to make this possible.

Anything helps. As an enticement to donating each donor can suggest some helpful motto or encouraging phrase which will be marked on the scanner in marker or paint.
PayPal ozark1@hotmail.com or use a credit card here. Thank you so much!


In other news we're going to start uploading to the archive site again regardless of the gallery software situation, hopefully everything will work out.
