Another Kickstarter project to create game accessories. This one is to create some amazing-looking dice. Check it out here
I ordered a set of these Fleet Movement Stands from LITKO. These look like a pretty cool upgrade for Twilight Imperium. I’ll add more details about them once they arrive. Not only do they look cool, having the fleets offset from the planets can make it very easy to tell see how many ground troops are present.
Tom Vasel did a recent video review of these for more information.
My gaming group has been using poker chips to replace the currency in board games for the past year. Chips are a great way to avoid using paper money, or the standard cardboard tokens that are included with most games.
This episode of Board Games with Scott focuses on how using poker chips for currency while playing board games.
What is it?
Having a great table to play on is a need not a want for dedicated gamers.
If money and space were unlimited, I would order one of the awesome Geek Chic tables immediately.
Back in reality, we often end up using an existing table and it is adequate. To improve my gaming room, I decided to try out a poker hoody on my table. The poker hoody is basically a neoprene cover that fits over the table and has drawstrings (think sweatpants) that can be used to cinch the cover tight to the table.
You can check out the pokerhoody.com site for details and a video clip that highlights its features.
It definitely makes playing games involving cards more enjoyable. Having a soft surface lets you easily pick up cards and chips and quiets down noisy dice rolling. I’d rate it a Buy if you are a fan of card-based games like Dominion or even 7 Wonders.
Do you happen to have one of those players in your group who finishes their turn and after the next player has begun they ask to reverse time and redo a decision they made? In my group we roll this little beauty across the table to remind them of the rules of time travel. This is a Mattel Hot Wheels Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine.
