Hello There!

Just a question for you,
WHERE IS THE BOARD GAME ACCESSORY DATABASE? Apart from right here the truth is I have not found too much info about it all. It gets talked about and I believe most people do it and would do it more so had they the tools and knowledge for it. That is my intention, to equip gamers with the resources and knowledge to ...

a.) Pimp out their games
b.) Pimp out their board gaming experience
c.) Encourage suppliers to stock these items
d.) Inspire designers to design better accessories for the games we love!

PLEASE ADD TO THIS LIST!
My input here is but the tip of the iceberg. I have wanted to compile this list for a while now but fear of it not being perfect or partially incomplete has stopped me. That's why with your help we can make this a nice comprehensive go-to list for all users. Please add pictures and suppliers (if known) for all Game accessories listed and if its not listed create a new entry. Please add your home made pimpings under the Custom Made Accessories Item.

Replacement Cases

What are people using for replacement cases for their games? I can't take credit for this one, but the suggestion I found that I like is using an artist's case from Hobby Lobby. It's pretty large, but it will be extra nice for those games that have expansions. Carrying around one large box > Carrying 3+ boxes, IMHO.


Check out the image to give the person I got the idea from his proper credit:
Board Game: Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game


I think that Hobby Lobby also has some smaller boxes, but none quite that nice. I'd like to find one for some of my smaller games, like Pandemic. What have other people found to use?

Plexi-glass

Pretty much mandatory for many wargames with thin or paper maps.

The best source that I've found is Home Depot, and as a plus you can get it cut to size there.

Chipboard aka cardboard

Used for mounting counters, and sometimes mounting maps. Available at craft stores, but I found that it was much less expensive at the art supply store.

Molding equipment

For dungeon crawls why not make it 3-D?

I've heard most about the Hirst art molds. If you search threads for 'Hirst' you'll find more examples and discussions.

Retracting ID Card/Keycard Lanyards are available through stationery and office supply shops, as well as online. They are very useful in games such as Combat Commander for checking Line-of-Sight between units or hexes. Rulers and measuring tape are often inconvenient because of their width, prompting gamers to use small rolls of string or fishing line instead. Retracting lanyards have a handy loop at one end which is easy to grip, and they neatly retract the string for you. They cost about $3. Utterly geeky, but they save a surprising amount of time.

Counter clipping jig

This is for wargamers with OCD and time on their hands. Often people use nail clippers to clip the corners of their counters, but using a jig ensures that the corners will be uniform.

Here's a geeklist on how to make your own jig.
How to clip your counters

If you're interested in this topic search the forums for "corner clipping" or "counter clipping". There are many threads on the topic.

Avery Adhesive Name Badges

... are absolutely perfect for making custom cards, because each badge is just slightly smaller than a standard playing card. You can design the art on the computer and laser print the stickers, then just attach them to cards.

I use them for custom Werewolf roles. You'll either need extra cards that match the backs or sleeve your cards. (I sleeve mine anyway because enough of my cards have become marked/bent from wear & tear.)

A great way to hold game pieces on the table without having to spread things all around or keep reaching in to baggies.

Especially good with games that include a lot of tokens, meeples, etc...like Agricola or Elder Signs.

To improve the board for boardgames such as Imperial Assault and Descent, you could use Hirstarts molds.

See example: http://hirstarts.yuku.com/topic/7730/Need-help-figuring-out-...

This was made by Bumyong here on BGG, so I can't take any credit for it at all.
I'm just a fan!

I so want to take credit for this blog post

basically he suggests using Vinyl Bumpers (less than $2 at Amazon) to elevate tableus that require you to slide cards underneath them like La Granja

Admittedly it will probably be a permanent solution (use at your own risk) so I'm open to items with adhesives that are repositionable.
