Being an avid board game collector requires a bit of organisation. My group and I have been playing boardgames for over 3 years now, and I’ll get around to reviewing some on this site. One of the things I try and do to minimise setup time (and to keep things all nice and tidy) is employ the use of these things:
I pick them up here in the UK from a shop called Home Bargains. The small one is just .79p and the medium is £1.49 (There is a larger one but I’ve not found a use for it yet) – so it’s very cheap to sort out all the dozens of little bits and pieces that the board games come with. Take for example Fantasy Flight Games’ Arkham Horror. That game has enough little different tokens and chits to choke a dolphin BUT…
This is much better than having to scrabble around for all the loose pieces in the bottom of the box which really adds about half hour to setup and pull down.
happy gaming :)
