Does anyone know if it is possible to buy shaped cribbage pins?

I'm not sure I have the skill to carve wood ones, I could 3D print plastic (but I don't like plastic). Ideally I would like metal ones.

What I really want is a set of chess pieces made from cribbage pins. But the closest I can seen to find ATM are metal pins with coloured tops.

Re: MANY-Shaped chocolates
Whilst 'moi' would prefer "Chess Pieces"-shapes in the form of 'Belgian Chocolates', along with 'coated' "Checkers"/orange rinds and assorted "Backgammon"-pieces SETS! cool

Maybe http://www.shapeways.com/ is the way to go? They do sintered metal printing, I think.

I've been there, and many other places.

The problem is there are a limited number of peg styles, and I need 6 styles per colour (pawn, knight, bishop, rook, queen & king)

Very helpful, .

Unfortunately they wouldn't last very long near me!

Cheers, I'll take a look.

Have you tried looking at travel chess sets that use metal pegs?

I also believe that you met the King of the Forest, Mei, and meeting him is a sign of good luck.

Not sure how long you want the stem of the peg, but here are some pieces that would probably fit into the cribbage holes.

The problem here, is I want them for more than just chess.

In total I need:

Black
32 Pawns !!!
2 Knights
2 Rooks
2 Bishops
1 Queen
6 Kings

White
12 Pawns
2 Knights
2 Rooks
2 Bishops
1 Queen
6 Kings

To do that with sets of chess pieces would require 6 sets.

Small chess pieces where you add a peg underneath?

Plenty of very cheap plastic chess sets, you can just drill out the middle and glue a peg in place.

All you need is one set and then mold your own using the pieces as a pattern.

There are lots of tutorial on youtube on how to make a mold and cast copies.
