One of my favorite benefits of using this site is the variants section of game forums. As my collection grows however, I've found myself using parts from some games in other, unrelated games/game systems.

This could be done to increase the longevity of a game (a makeshift expansion of sorts), it could be done to improve a game's production value (better quality/detailed components), or some other reason entirely. Whatever the reason, list your successful swaps here...

We created a hefty expansion for Time's Up: Title Recall using a couple hundred of our Apples to Apples red cards.
We got burned out on Apples a while back and hid the game in the back of the game closet, but it now has a new-found purpose.

We use the gold in Citadels in a number of games. I should probably just buy some more, but most recently, we've used them when playing ETC since the cardboard on the backs of the "pogs" is worn in such a way you can tell the 6 pointer apart from the 2 pointers.

I use the 20-sided die to keep life/score while playing Marvel Dice Masters.

The numbered strength chits can be used in any number of games (so could the cohesion hit markers from Great Battles of History).

Pretty common one

Use Racko cards 3-35 + 55 counters (or poker chips) to make No Thanks!

These are much higher quality than the dice that come in VisualEyes
You actually have to peel and stick the images on the cubes to make the dice. A couple sets of Rory's fit the bill!

USE THOSE OLD DRAGONMASTER CARDS TO PLAY COUP!




Just pick 3 of the 4 suites...and play! Finally, I'm going to use those cool Dragonmaster cards!

Duke = King
Count = Assassin
Wizard = Ambassador
Baron = Captain
Queen = Contessa

Also you have the crystals to use as currency.

Scott had a great idea for randomizing your Codenames Key by repurposing Boggle components!
