I'm helping put together a gaming weekend for around 20 guys, and we're going to create some welcome bags. What are some ideas for what could go in them? Answers have to be (a) cheap; and (b) gaming-related.

Some things we've thought of:
1) The bags will be Crown Royal bags. Great for drawing tiles!
2) Some custom dice.
3) Stickers. Do any game companies sell or give away stickers with their logo?

What are some other ideas?

Well, I was going to say that I love custom dice, but you've already got that covered.

You could consider some wooden bits or cool crystals as game piece replacements (like what they've got at Boards and Bits).

Are there other common interests among most of the attendees? Comic books or video games or something? You could get some knick knacks that tie in to those other interests. One of the comic shops by me has a bunch of comic book character buttons. I'd probably throw one into each bag were I making them.

Some goofy trading cards from the 80s or 90s could be fun too. If you remember all the Ninja Turtle cards in wax paper wrappers, that's the kind of thing I'm thinking. You might be able to find a box of them on eBay or something.

Take-Back-Toe printed rules, printed "board" on a small index card, and some little wood discs to play it with.

also an airplane bottle of CR so you don't get accused of deception.

What kind of budget are you talking about?

These magnetic meeples (http://www.etsy.com/listing/56001358/geeky-meeple-magnets-ca...) come in at under $3 each.

If you have some... slow... players, this would be good for a laugh. I've seen it at several vendors at various conventions. I know that I got mine from Our Game Table in Delaware. (http://www.ourgametable.com/) and they cost $1 at the time.

Thanks for the suggestions - I'll look into them.

My budget is low - not non-existent, but I don't think I'll be spending more than $100 on the bags.

The longest turn card is hilarious!!
