Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.
A buddy asked me this question so I thought I'd ask BGG.
He thought that the various player pieces for Monopoly--thimble, hat, car--was a new innovation, compared to other games that just colored pawns. Is this so? Obviously we're not talking games like chess or shogi where each player handles an army of individual pieces. I'm interested if there are any pre 1935 games where each player has their own individualized player token.
