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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE TOO MANY RETAILERS TO FIT HERE (WHICH IS AWESOME) ALSO MANY OF THE RETAILS SELL THE EXACT SAME ITEMS, SO TO KEEP THE PICTURES DOWN A BIT I HAVE SHOWN THEM ONLY UNDER A RANDOM RETAILER. ALSO NOTE THAT THIS LIST IS INCOMPLETE AND MOST RETAILERS LISTED SELL AND HAVE A MUCH WIDER RANGE THEN I HAVE GIVEN CREDIT FOR.


ALSO PLEASE ADD A DESCRIPTION AND TIPS FOR THE ITEMS I DO NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH
THANKS IN ADVANCE

OK so this list is far from complete and many of these items are out of stock from these sites. So please add content and email these sites until they get the stock back in please.

WOW! The Boardgamegeek community has made this a great list. I have learned so much and also now have many contacts. Please check back regularly as I intend to keep this as updated as I can.

Akro-Mils 30210 Plastic Storage Stacking AkroBin

From gallery of ancyberturtle


These bins are super sturdy, stackable, and hangable. They're are great for token and resource storage during play. They can be stacked during play and have room to reach in and grab tokens out. I also use them to store dice and coins with my board game collection.

Amazon sells them in plenty of different sizes and colors.
