Re: My simple solution for the pawn stand teeth of death
Um, the whole point of my method is that it doesn't damage the playing pieces?
getting different stands is a possibility (I tried different ones that I already had). The problem is that the cardboard character pawn is much thicker than usual one's that I've dealt with- its like 1.5x as thick as Pathfinder pawns and 2x as thick as the Okko ones. I'm not sure I could even find stands that a- have an opening that is wide enough to hold the thick cardboard and b- don't have the damaging teeth.
For now I am quite happy with my method as I like having both spirit animal and character on the stand at the same time- I like how it looks and it saves me the trouble of having to switch them out (and risk further damage) when the character dies, because Wyrd only included 6 stands with the game. And most importantly, it doesn't damage the character cardboard.
Maybe if I ever pick up Dead of Winter I can try the stands from that game... who knows.
