I'd like to buy some wooden cones like the ones used to mark dominance. Anyone know where I can buy some "a la carte"?

Oh! Preferably in the USA also.

Appreciate the link Bob. I was looking for cones though. Boards and Bits didn't have any either

Go to Pawns and Other Figures -> Other

They call the "Traders".

Thanks. May have to do that then. Really didn't want to pay for international shipping for some minor game pimping but I guess I may have to.

Yeah Spielmaterial wont be an option. Would cost me about $40 just to ship a handful of wooden pieces. I'll just have to keep hoping I find a USA seller. Been looking but no luck so far.

Wow, I guess you are going to order a lot. They charge €7 which is about $9 for up to 2.2 lbs (1kg). Not cheap sure.

What are you planning to do? Perhaps you can use some other bit... like pawns which B&B does sell.

Maybe I looked at it wrong then. They way I read it was that parcels up to 5kg cost 35 Euro's then it says +17 (air mail). Wasn't sure if the +17 was optional or not.

The only thing I saw for $6 was "letters" but that said only up to 500 grams.

I just want 10 yellow and 10 black cones. Min order had to be 5 Euros but I added a pack of glass tokens (can always use those) but the glass tokens only weigh 350 grams.

Yeah. Looking like I might have to settle for something else. Cubes wont work cause the game I'm adding the pieces to already uses cubes. I'm not a fan of pawns. I'll just have to look around.

Seems fairly cheap for overseas. Also 'letters' can be small parcels sometimes, it depends on the thickness and width.

The whole lot including postage comes to £7.50 which is about $12.

EDIT: I have bought several items from them and they are a reliable and efficient source.

I've tried several times so far to get the page to load and I just keep getting a "browser cannot load this page" error.

EDIT: So I eventually got the site to load and have my cones on the way. 10 black and 10 yellow for $12 including shipping. Thanks.

In my opinion the cones are no good as game pieces:thumbsdown:: They are too easy to drop out of your finger grip! I have altered mine by grinding with a small Dremel drill around the tip, and added a traditional bulb of FIMO coloured clay with a very good result. Now they look and feel like traditional gaming pawns.


You mean...your pawns actually evolved? That's what I call realism.

I placed an order with them early tue morning but I have not received any kind of follow up email from them about my order. My Paypal was charged, however. I sent an email yesterday asking them what the status of my order was but no reply to that yet. How long do they usually take to update you about an order?

10 yellow and 10 black cones? Are you using them to mark castles in Sekighara? Great idea. Keep us informed as to how the order goes.

That was exactly what I was doing. Saw it in one of the Sekigahara pictures. If the order goes okay it would only cost me $9 and most of that is shipping.

I don't remember and there is no holiday in the UK. They may just have sent stuff without confirmation. In the UK things usually arrive next day so if I did not get a confirmation by the time it concerned me I'd have had the items. All I know is I've not had a problem with them in the past. Hopefully you will be OK.

I emailed and got a reply a couple days later. My order is on its way.

My order got lost in the mail. When it had been three week since it shipped I emailed them again and they resent my items. Received the second shipment less than a week later. Couldn't be happier with my product either.
