With a game of its age that is officially out of print, I'm not very optimistic that you will have much luck. I think your best bet might be to contact FFG and ask if they have any replacement potion tokens left in the warehouse. Failing all that, you might just have to make do with proxy chits. Sorry bud.

If you don't have any luck you could always print some on card stock and make some decent replacements. Not quite as good as the real thing, but still usable and nice looking.

This list is a great place to ask for (and offer) missing bits and bobs: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/150255/2013-spare-parts-re...

To be fair though, you'll probably not need them. They're not very good, and experienced players usually prefer fatigue potions.

why don't you use little bottles, like the airlines?
then they could actually drink the to their health

hey everyone! thanks for all the suggestions. i've thought about printing a replacement on card stock but it would bother me having 8 solid cardboard potion tokens and 1 thinner card stock replacement lol i've been playing descent a while and do recognize fatigue potions are way better than healing potions but i'm the type of person that gets bothered by missing pieces no matter how small or insignificant lol i hate being like this at times but i can't help it. so the fact that i have a complete descent aside from 1 single freaking healing potion drives me crazy! haha and i'm not 100% sure what you mean by airlines...didn't quite get that part

If your only missing one, you probably will never miss it. I don't think we have ever had all of them in use.

Your missing the point. This is the kind of person that would wake up at night because he misses a single bit in a 1000-bits game that probably sees the light of day once a year to begin with.

What really upsets me is that I can relate to that.

I get that. I was just trying to hopefully make him feel a little better about the missing token. Just in case he couldn't find a replacement.

lmao i appreciate trying to make me feel better about the missing healing potions. i do realize fatigue potions are way better and there tends to be healing potions left in the town shop but just the fact that my copy of descent is 99% complete and not 100% sorta irks me lol i do see the light of day more than once a year. i only recently got into board gaming a couple months ago after a friend introduced me to descent. i will say i have been seeing less and less daylight since starting descent though lol

lol yes i suppose 99% is better than 98% but thank the heavens i am now at 100%! the friend that gave me my copy of descent counted 10 healing potions rather than the 9 that comes with the game so somehow one of mine got mixed in with his stack. now i can finally sleep in peace. thanks everyone for all your replies and suggestions!
