I'm sure for all of us, there is not much we prefer to opening a new game for the first time. Tear off the shrink, prise off the lid and spread the contents all over the table.

Look at the board and admire the art work, look at the charts and wonder what they are used for, take out the meeples or other wooden parts, look through any cards that come with it, and look at all the counters you are going to punch out and any other parts that might be in your new game.

What is your favourite part from a game? It does not have to be your favourite game, it does not even have to be from a game you like just a part you love. Could be the board, could be a meeple, a card, the box anything really.

The Spaceship of Catan. I love the Starships in Starfarers. It probably helps that I love the game as well, but I think they are great parts. Big parts as well. If you have not seen them, they are big. The main reason the box is so deep is because of the size of the Spaceships.

I think its really fun as you play the game to see them get better as well, as you add more engines to make them go faster, more weapons to be better in combat with the space pirates, and more trade rings so you can trade more. The ships also contain small coloured balls, so you shake the ship and tip it up to see if you get an encounter (depends on the colour of the balls).

So not only a great looking part but a key part of the game.

The first one that comes to mind for me is the dice tower in Shogun. I am probably missing something I like more, but this one deserves mention anyway. The original HeroScape red dice with the white skulls on take second place, with the 3-level Theed palace in Star Wars: The Queen's Gambit taking third.

I love all the pieces to
Dead of Night.
I made this game as a birthday present for my husband because he told me not to buy him anything so I didn't, I made it.

I painted the heroes:





and I laminated all the cards, chits, rooms, etc.



But my all time favorite piece to the whole game has to be:

Not as visually imposing as the Gargoyle, given the lack of wings and weaponry, but you know after dealing with him once, that the Chaos Warlock is bound to have something up his sleeve. You don't need to have wings and weapons when you don't need wings and weapons. He gets his point across just fine.

I like all people shaped meeple. Leonardo da Vinci has them as well. They can be stacked in, um, interesting positions. Really cool to have a big meeple like in Carcassonne: Expansion 1 – Inns & Cathedrals to spice things up a bit. We are talking everything from Chinese acrobat stacking to the Kama Sutra.

I've always loved the disc that dispenses the ratings changes for the bands in Schrille Stille. The game is sort-of "meh" when you distill it, but the ratings disc just seems to make everyone have a little more anxiety over their bands than if everyone just voted.
