After searching for upgraded pieces which were not MeepleSource (due to cost), I found some nice jewelry charms to do the job. They required some painting, but turned out great. Here's the results of my project:



I got the pieces from here: https://www.etsy.com/people/nylesbreecher/favorites/ds-best

A bunch of steps were involved, but the project wasn't too bad. Since I had paints lying around already, there wasn't a ton of extra cost besides getting the pieces themselves. Still not cheap, but much cheaper than the alternative.

Hopefully I get to play this weekend and can add some pictures of the pieces in game!

I'd use them for dominance markers (cones) but the cubes. Way too messy and hard to count

I'd have to agree with Samuel. They look lovely, and are stunningly thematic, but they also look to be way too much of a pain in the butt to handle and keep track of. Can you imagine 8-10 each of two or three of those animals in one hex? Gah!

I got to play with the pieces tonight, and they worked perfectly. There were no issues with them at all. Very easy to figure out numbers of species.




I didn't take pictures later, but we had hexes with 14+ pieces that weren't an issue either. I just don't understand the aversion to using not cubes.
