I know there are many geeklists out there about game bits, ones that are pretty, ugly, dangerous, etc. I was thinking about bits last night and I realized that, well, my FAVORITE bit EVER is the wolf coat of arms from The King of Elves.

What is your favorite bit ever? I am looking to hear about your choice, one per person, as specific as you can get. For example, please do not group a bunch of bits (not like: all the wooden bits of PR, but like: the coffee barrel in PR) For card games, an individual card will be appropriate (i.e. the green bean from Bohnanza). You can also include the board, but I'd rather you choose a smaller bit in a game than "the board"...

Please try to include why you like the bit as well.

Thank you

The WOLF coat of arms is my favorite bit in all the games I have played so far. I like square bits. I like the particular color and art on the wolf coat of arms. I MUST always be the wolf when I play The King of Elves (but that's another geeklist [that has already been done])

The one at the bottom of the picture with the bridged cities. This tile just gets me. I don't know why, but I think it is great.

The Prince's Own Militia counter, which (in a wargame of divisional-and-regimental-scale) represents the company of soldiers that make up the entire army of Lichtenstein, and who will, on a roll of 4-6, "defend their national honor and their postage stamps to the death".

Just the idea that you might NEED such a thing in any game, no matter how detailed, boggles the mind. I love it.

While the game is pretty pathetic, I love the mini critters that come with Gregory Horror Show... My favorites are the monstrous nurse with bloated lips and a bloody syringe and the sleepwalking, crazy-eyed mouse with the lantern. Great, great bits. Awful, awful game.

I don't know why, but the Event Card "Wormtongue Bemuses Theoden" has always been a sacred bit of text to me. It's not the effects of the card -- it's not anything about it's role in the game -- I just like that phrase: "Wormtongue Bemuses Theoden."

It gets me everytime.
