So, what are everyone's favorite gaming accessories?

Could be things like a dice tower, the dice shield, counters, metal money, individual game upgrades, etc...

Keep those dice towers off my table! Waste of space if you ask me.

Accessories I enjoy include micro pimps like the cheese tokens here:


I also dislike small cardboard tokens (I'm looking at you Fantasy Flight) so I try to upgrade those as well. In The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game I use glass beads in different colors instead of the included wound, resource and adventure tokens. Wooden hearts and blood drops from Meeplesource is also a good replacement.

And I sleeve everything.

A table is nice as well laugh

Dice cups. A billard felt table cover. And poker chips to replace paper money in certain games. Also side tables for drinks.

What would you recommend for a good felt table cover? I am currently using two fold out tables, but would like a cover for them.

I bought a piece of billard felt at a billard store and brought it to my seamstress, who made a table cover out of it:



It looks good, you can pick up cards easily without damaging their edges with your nails and it muffles the sound of dice bouncing on the table.

I have a 36" x 48" transparent polycarbonate sheet that I can throw over a game board to keep things from sliding around or getting food/drink on it. It also makes the surface less slippery, so pieces stay where you put them. I like it a lot.

Pete (wants to get another one but they seem to cost more than his games do)

Make that a big table.

Games like Eldritch Horror or Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island taught me a lesson about the relativity of space.

I use one for Catan. It keeps all the tiles in order.

The silicone cupcake sleeves are great for holding bits and money while playing. These also make it easier to sort after the game is over.

I like the mini (7 gram clay composite) poker chips for money. They are just slightly larger in diameter than a quarter, with a nice heft and unique sound when they hit each other. You can get 300 for $10.

I use the plastic cubes from EAI Education (1000 pcs. for under $20) for bits that are lacking quality. They have many things I use for print and play games.

You and I are two of a kind. Some time ago I found battery trays that I use for sorting bits. I have the EAI cubes and a stockpile of wooden cubes from esty.com (they have holes in them but are smaller than the EAI cubes). And I just bought two sets of the mini poker chips two days ago!
