Hello all.
I am looking for about 60 or 70 (inexpensive) pre-cut hex tiles around 2 inches or so made of cardboard. I am in the process of designing my own board game and the board is going to be made up of the hex tiles. I know I could cut my own but this would be very time consuming not to mention that I want them to be as exact as possible and hand cutting can be a little off at times.

If anyone has any suggestions I would be very grateful.

Also a good place to get painted or unpainted wooden pawns and meeples.

Thanks again.

Print and Play do the same sort of thing too.

**Edit to add that I've used both companies, and the ones from PnP are actually thicker. Just FYI.

Just a reminder that for a crude prototype, 1/2 offset alternating rows of squares is functionally equivalent to hexes, and is a lot easier to hand craft.

You can find meeples at www.meeplesource.com , but I don't know if you could find cheaper prices elsewhere. I think I've seen wooden pawns on amazon, but you might be able to make your own from a wooden dowel, and cut to length for cheaper.

If you're still prototyping, you could do this virtually on Powerpoint (with creative substitutes for shuffling if required), or find someone with a Cricut, or hand cut from cardstock. I've done all of the above to save my $ until I'm positive what I need and has been playtested before I spend at TGC or PnP.

There was an old video game that used this instead of hexes, Romance of the 7 Kingdoms or something, Chinese feudal warfare.

I like using circular discs in rows offset even more than squares.
