	Heh.  Reminds me of the venerable game STELLAR WARS
	by Bruce Loren Miller (1977)

	In it, you take your miniatures, and design ships
	that correspond to each miniature.  All ship systems
	take up so many build points.

	How do you determine how many build points a given
	miniature has?	Why, you determine how many cubic
	millimeters the miniature takes up!

	The back of the rulebook has the formula for determining
	the volume of cubes, cylinders, cones, etc.
	You approximate your miniature in terms of these, and
	calculate it's volume.
