I just aquired a 2 foot mini xmas tree and I'd like to make it into a boardgame themed tree for my game room.

Only thing is I don't have any extra boardgame pieces. If you have any pieces to spare from busted or worn out titles you own please post here if you can spare them and we can make arrangements.

Thank you all and Merry Christmas (or whichever seasonal Holidays you may celebrate)

That's actually a really neat idea.

Since I just built a game room a few months ago, I am also planning such a tree. But, I decided to skip it this year so I could buy the tree discounted after Christmas. Not to mention a year to plan/make/collect the gaming ornaments.

Post a pic after it is done!

Goodwill (or your local thrift store) usually has old games for under $3.00 that you can use for pieces. Old money can be "woven" into garland, pawn-type pieces can be ornaments, etc.

Since I am an Arkham's Horror fan, I would LOVE to see a Cthulu themed tree. Tentacle garland, Eldar Sign tree topper, investigator ornaments...

Geek Gold to any pictures of such a tree!

Not a spare pieces idea but have you thought about making ginger bread meeples to hang from the tree? Sticks to the gaming and Christmas theme and oh so tasty to eat.

Ben,

As it turns out, I have several dice ranging from D4 to D20 that I could send along
