Not 100% sure this is the right place for this question, but nothing else seemed to jump out at me either. I'm looking for a bag to put tokens, chits, Arkham monsters, Carcassonne tiles, etc into. Something like a Crown Royal bag, but not a Crown Royal bag. If it's got some sort of gaming related detail to it, like an elder sign or something, that's even better. Also, of course, don't want to spend a ton on a bag.

Can someone steer me in the right direction?

Boardsandbits sells a few, such as this one:

EDIT: Some of which are more in-stock than others, but they have a few. You can also find plain canvas bags at many hobby shops like Hobby Lobby and Michaels, if you're so inclined.

You should be able to find canvas bags for less than a dollar

I *love* the Lotus Bag ("deluxe" size = $9) that I just picked up from Games By Gamers at Origins. It looks nice, is well-made but not heavy, and is easy to open and close. The mouth is very wide, so it's easy to see inside the bag. For grabbing random bits during gameplay, something deeper might be more ideal.

I second the Etsy rec, too.

Those are custom made and hard to keep in stock.

If you need several, these are nice. Inexpensive and take up very little room in the box!

High-quality, handmade dice bags. They come in different sizes. She made me some dice bags for AH to hold custom normal, cursed, and blessed dice. She also made a large and small flat-bottom bag to serve as monster cups.

You can see what she made for me here:




EDIT: It looks like she's on vacation for July, but will be taking orders again August 1. If you're not in a rush, these are definitely worth getting.

Thanks all! I do like those Elder sign ones, I may swing by Michaels to pick up something temporarily, then get one of the others when she's back.

If you find anything decent at Michaels, please let us know-- I've been trying to find one myself for Carcassonne tiles, and so far I haven't had much luck (the bag that comes with Inns & Cathedrals is pretty craptacular).

If you live near a Daiso, then you may be able to find bags like this:

Actually, we bought similar bags for Hive, YINSH, Carcassonne, Acquire... They come in two sizes and the one you see above is the smaller one. The larger sized one fits all our Carcassonne tiles from Big Box 2. meeple

They go at S$2 in Singapore's Daiso. In Japan, every item in the store sells for 100 yen.

I saw your post in another thread. Alas, no such Daiso location anywhere near me as far as I can tell.
