About four of my monsters boards have really loose spinners. One little bump and their counters slide, which can cause problems if you don't remember your stats. However, three of the monster boards are tight, which is perfect.

It appears that the plastic pegs holding them in place are glued. I don't want to pry too hard and risk damaging them. Any ideas on how I can create more friction to tighten the spinners?

I've noticed this too - but just on a couple of mine; they spin far too freely.

You might try sliding in a little fold of paper between the wheel and the card to create more friction.

I've thought about that: cut card stock in the shape of a circle half the diameter of the spinner; use a hole punch to place a hole in the center of the circle; make one straight cut from the outer circumference to the hole; and slide between spinner and monster board.

I just have to think about how to keep the card stock from sliding out over time. Maybe just a piece of 1cm Scotch tape.
