I recently acquired a really cool mini whiskey barrel but didn't know what to do with it. I started thinking about how much space Rum & Bones takes on my table and hit on the idea of trying to shrink this sucker down.



I have a lot more info on my blog: Showcase: Rum & Bones

Due to space issues, I had to ditch all the wonderful minis for cubes and custom meeples. Then I scanned the boards and cards to reprint them smaller to fit in the barrel. The final "travel" version takes up quite a bit less table space now.

Awesome job. I particularly like the idea of swapping out all the deckhands and bosuns for small color pieces as you have done. They take up way too much space and slow down the game.

I don't see you mentioning these pieces in your blog posts, only where you got the Pirate meeples from. Would you mind sharing this info?

Thanks and I think there are a lot of options to buy cubes and cylinders but I got mine from Printandplaygames.com:

Cylinders

They have no minimum and have a variety of options and sizes.
