We have all seen the geeklist of the super-pimped games. They might have expertly painted minis or fancy wooden additions or even scratch redesigns. This is not that geeklist.

This geeklist is about the little things you did to make a game better. Making text a little more readable, swapping out pawns, or improving it in a very small - and perhaps easy - way.

Please add your own micro-pimps.

My replacement counters to make visualizing the number of upper floor bonus pouints a bit easier. The tiles end up less crowded and the white counters add a little more visual satisfaction to the game.

What we do is place a white counter whenever an even numbered floor is added and remove any black counters. The number of white counters is the number of points available. When an odd numbered floor is placed we add a black counter on top showing that you won't get any bonus points for playing there.

Ironically the game publisher said they used thsoe counters for the prototype of the game!

No pictures, but ... I had the original fourth printing, added the upgrade pack, and thus had some really fugly plastic counter thingies with nearly invisible numbers on them for health, strength, etc., and to me the fate tokens (made of cardboard) didn't fit in with those at all and weren't any less ugly, too.

So I replaced them all with glass beads, in red green blue and shiny-white-ish. Quite fits the theme, too.

With bits this good looking, it hurt my sense of style to be playing it on any other surface except one that actually looks like an ocean... so I got myself this navy blue fleece blanket to use as a table cover...



And it has the added benefit that the tiles don't slide around.

For our copy of TtR, I bought some of the little locomotives from a set of Mexican Train to use as point markers. They are much better looking than those boring disks.



Not all the locomotive colors are exact matches to the game colors, but they are close enough. (These are available through Amazon.)

Only referring to the token pimping I've done in ToI. I replaced the "heavy damage" and "light damage" chits with Litko flame and black smoke tokens. Here's a heavily damaged Tiger I:



and some damaged Shermans:



and replaced my initiative token with an M1 Garand model:



...and a number of other things... I used left over plastic from my Space Hulk 3rd ed. sprues to make some tank traps. Replaced most of the armor and vehicle models... And bought a pack of miniature barbed wire to replace the chits. My ToI is very pimped.

24x24 is a pretty huge grid compared to most abstracts. The photo shows a guide lines tattoo, which makes reading the position much easier. It provides a frame of reference for your eyes. The guide lines often indicate who will win a ladder chase.

To add eight guide lines to a commercial set, the following are recommended:

* a straight edge such as a metal yardstick
* two C clamps
* A big piece of wood for the board to protect the table top, and small pieces of wood to protect the underside of the table from gouge marks due to the pressure from the C clamps
* an awl
* a neutral color pencil, e.g. blue for a 3M set
* patience

The lines all start in one of the four corners of the common playing area, B2, B23, W2, or W23, and can extend as far as you wish, but they should all be the same length. See the enlarged photo. It is easier to make if they end at a hole. My aesthetic preference is to use i9, i16, P9, and P16 as the endpoints.

About 45 minutes of work, maybe not a micro pimp but certainly not a major one.

I don't know how small this "micro-pimp" is, or whether it counts as a "micro-pimp", but it is nonetheless a thing I've done.

UNITY Basiluxe edition (for cheap gamers with scissors)

For the cost of two Basic editions of this game and scissors, you can have gameplay that is even more complex and more customizable than the Deluxe edition, albeit on a board which is less flat and with pieces that are foam instead of acrylic. Still, it's a heck of a lot cheaper!

With Up Front, as with so many games, it is very useful to be able to view at once all of your cards . The pic shows a pair of simple card stands I have cut and folded (no gluing is required) from a single A3 sheet of stiff paper or thin card. They can be unfolded to fit inside the game box. The decorative logo on the face is a scan of a card back, reduced slightly and printed onto a standard address label. For the prototype I have used white card, but camouflage decoration would be thematic. If, as is likely, they become dog-eared with use, they are easily replaced and should have in any case helped to reduce the amount of handling the cards would have received.

If anyone is interested, I could upload a "working drawing".

Vinhos does have a ton of material, most of which is functional and serves its purpose well. However, the four fiddly wine feature markers are just a pain to pick up with normal sized fingers.

An eays pimp could be four wooden cubes or wooden cylinders which we did not have spare parts at hand. We found an excellent use of playing figures from our broken Targui set.

Two did two very simple things. I glued nickels to the base of each Nazgul. It vastly improves their ability to stand up. I also replaced the combat dice with standard sized dice, and doubled the qty. Now both players can roll simultaneously without waiting for each other.

Purchased a $1 wooden box from Michaels (an arts and crafts store in California), and some balsa wood. Stained the box with Minwax wood varnish, then painted up the balsa wood with cheapo bronze craft paint. Glued it to the box, then dry brushed it for some age.

Unfortunately it's only large enough to fit all of the treasure tokens and a few wound markers.
