Many of you are starting to cut wood to create animeeples.

Now I am wondering if any of you is thinking about creating shaped reed/coal/vegetables/stone/wood(/food just to have anything made of wood).

I'd be interested in buying...

Stone Age has great wooden parts for wood, clay, and stone.

How many of them in a Stone Age box?

wood -> catan roads
bricks -> I could buy two packs from eggert spiele
stone -> black cubes

reed -> ? (a pity stone age gold pieces are yellow, they are almost shaped like a roof )

grain and vegetables... I could use the discs, even though I'd prefer having something better.

Very pretty potentially but in all the games I've played, people stack their resources to keep them neat and to know more easily how many they have at a glance.

Shaped vegetables and reeds won't do this readily and unless they are large and chunky they could prove fiddly to handle. Go large and you'll have space issues on the board if a restock takes place several times.

The counters are still wooden. They look great with the stickers on, and I think the function over form argument wins through for me here.

my idea is the same of animeeples:
take the basic picture, extrude it (like the animeeples) and you have something that recalls the real object and can be stacked.

I planned to print them, but I have no tools to cut a circle.

Your local craft store or scrapbooking store should have very nice circle punches in the right size (a bit over a centimeter). If you can't find them there I am certain you can buy them online. The ones I have are made by Marvy in Japan.

You need a one-half inch circle punch. I could not find this size in ANY of the local craft/sewing shops, but that is why we have the internet!

Have you seen any of these threads, which covered how you can make your own resources from polymer clay?

There was even a posting about how to make stone, wood and clay disks - but it was just a joke (too easy to need instructions).

I know Mayday Games will have some for sale within the next month or so:

http://www.mayday-games.com/452.html

Coming Late Fall 2008: The Deluxe Farm Expansion

5 Sets of 5 wooden farmers families, each with a Dad, Mom and 3 kids - 25 farmers all together, roughly 1 inch at the base and around 1 1/2 inches tall. Also included in this set are:


30 Brownish/Red Bricks for building very very short stables
16 Straw or Reeds-like resources for your kids to lose.
20 Grey Stones for building
38 Food tokens for the 25 farmers to fight over (wouldn't want 2 each then what would they fight about?)
28 Grain Tokens for feeding your animals
20 Carrots (1/2 burried effect so they are "growing" in your imaginary farm)

Please note most of these will be around 15-20 mm in size each.


This deluxe wooden farm expansion will be made of the highest quality for hours of family fun.
