Hi everyone - We are all aware that people are going orgasmic over making or finding or pre ordering little animals to replace cubes in Agricola.

What other games do we need to do this for? Where will it end?

Long live the humble cube I say! I will not be replacing my cubes because I want my copy of Agricola to be different to everyone elses and the only way I can achieve that now is to NOT get animals.

:-)

I tried swapping my meeples for actual Carcasses but that just didn't work. Plus it STUNK.

I tried swapping the Sand cubes for actual sand... but it was really hard to count. And the metal I used instead of metal ruined the box.

Rats.... Dead or Alive they just do not work on the gaming table. (see Carcassone - above). And why do all trusted friends wear hats?

Hmmm... Coal shaped meeples look just like poo. So I'm sticking with cubes here.

Cubes in Yspahan represent goods.

I thought about making a stack of mini meeples in the shape of Adam Goodes... but I just couldn't do that to a dual brownlow winner. Plus the game would lose all it's theme.

For non Aussies -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Goodes and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brownlow_Medal

BUT at least Yspahan has camels to represent - camels!

What exactly are the cubes in Balloon Cup meant to represent?

This is too darn hard. I'm sticking to cubes. They are the best.

I also play larps, so I had more than enough friends to play the armies, but I just couldn't fit them in the tower.

You could try using meeples instead of population cards for this.

But you'd need at least 25 million of them per player surprise

p.s. this game was first published in 1965? Really?

Hey, I know - we could use actual diseases in Pandemic. Only chumps uses cubes! Win the game, save the planet and cure the diseases or die.

~or we could just use cubes~
