Who hasn't fancied pushing their pieces around the board like in the War Room in the movies?

I know about croupier sticks, but the hooked end doesn't seem suited for gaming (too large). I'm looking for something like the classic straight stick with a flat plate at the end. Does anyone sell these?

What about the bridge cues for pool tables? e.g.:

Doesn't Eagle Games put them in their games? The games are so big, you certainly need them.

Well, there you go. Maybe if you tried, you wouldn't be so rigid.

How about an aluminum, telescoping, back-scrather. The "blade" is 3cm wide and it has five tines which are 3mm wide. It extends about 18-inches or about 45cm.

Coup sticks are more fun, and were used in actual war games:



When you've surrounded your opponent's last panzer division, whip out your coup stick, smack him on the head, then run for your car. Instant hilarity. And so thematic!

I think that croupier sticks do have a place in gaming, but, it depends on which accessory you have with it. If you like naval games you may wish to add this to your croupier stick:



Or into futuristic science fiction Wargames:



Or other types of Wargames:
