Re: [Something] My ELBS are sticky.

My single set of ELBS (11 squares) had the tape; haven't received my 
SHPLBS (big box o' bulk ELBS, i.e. 600+ little black squares) yet, so
obviously I don't know whether they'll be adhesive-enabled or not.
I'll let you know.

I hope it's a mix, because my idea is to use run-of-the-mill decals 
or stickers to turn some into game pieces with a [hopefully] uniform
blank side.  At some theoretical point in the future, like with almost
everything I do game-wise  ;-)
