I do a little micro-pimping and I really enjoy making homemade copies of games.

As a result, I'm always looking at game components wondering if they might work for my next project. I also horde small game components and found items setting them aside for later.

I'll start this list off with a few re-purposed components from my own micro-pimps but I also have a few components I'm looking to re-purpose and would love some ideas on how they might be used.

Feel free to add anything you've done or are planning on doing with your re-purposed components.

I "borrowed" the cat from my copy of Mouse Chaos to serve as Brody in my copy of Mice & Mystics. In later scenarios, we'll use the tables and chairs from the game as well.
