I have the first version, so I wanted to add some more cubes. I ordered 8mm cubes and they were too small. Pandemic uses a 10mm cube and they are too big. And ofcourse there is the color matching problem. Does anyone have any info they could lend on where to get these cubes.
Thanks.

I use wooden disks (from an extra copy of Caylus) to substitute 4 cubes placed within a state. This a) decreases clutter b) acts as a nice visual aid to readily see which states are carried and most importantly, c) frees up four cubes per disk used. Since doing this, I have never had a cube shortage problem, and I also have the first ed.

Try emailing Zev. I have heard that in the past he has been quite willing to just send a few extra cubes to those that ask (IIRC, about 10 per color). They're the right color, right size, right amount, and right price.

Personally, I just use pennies for Nixon and dimes for Kennedy because I don't want to be bothered, but Zev is generally pretty great about that kind of thing.

Good luck and enjoy!!!
