  1. For some reason I'm not allowed to edit the post anymore for cleanness and fixing of spelling errors...I did it on my phone and I'm regretting doing it that way. Also, I forgot to mention that in the Quad is my Compass die for direction, my custom D10 from the 10th Anniversary of my college's gaming convention, and my hand painted 2d6 that I got in Spain (either glass or stone, can't tell)
  2. It’s here! My Benge Dragon dice tower has arrived to complete my Benge wood CoCo + Tower combo. So worth it. In any of you wondered, yes I went heavy on theme Here’s the front, and only when I looked closely did I realize that mine was the one pictured on Update 15 for the project! As you can see, it can hold my entire set of (what I call) my Olympic Poly set of bronze, silver, and gold dice. Not metal, and thats 21 dice! Ready to go, along with its companion CoCo tray that is the only sculpted tray I got. Naturally, a Dragon tower and tray must ne used with dice of fire! Thisbset of dice I keep in one of DMG’s Dragon Sheaths, and it features dragon themes as well (see other photos on the forums And finally, the (almost) complete Benge collection, along with a substantial amount of my die collection. - In the Benge Hero Sleeve (in front) are custom D6s my friends Kate and Steve had made foe their wedding as party favors. - Flashing D20 in the Dragon tray, and Dragon themes coins up in the coin tray at the top. - Other Olympic dice on the left, for Fate as well as just plain D6s in the Square and Card trays - My blue Crystaline Dice (missing the D20 though) and my 10d10s for White Wolf in the two Bowls - And finally in the tower itself are the free dice for being a day one backer of the project (which i had completely forgotten I was getting!) and directly below that are the Galaxy dice that originally came with my Hero Sleeve. Thank yoy DMG for a fantastic year of collecting wooden gaming accessories. I need to stop for a while for the sake of my finances, but I’ll be back! - Brian
  3. Three Kingdoms (Redux) This game is 3 player ONLY, which is unusual. It documents the bid for power between the Wei, Wu, and Shu dynasties in old China. Worker placement/bidding. I used all but 2 trays of my two CoCos, and they wound up holding all the components PERFECTLY, and as you can see, Three Kingdoms has a lot of components! Full board set up at the start of the game, with the supply a then individual player trays in front of each of us. A close up of my personal trays. I ALWAYS take the dragon when I use my CoCos, because it's special. A close up of the general supply. Turns out some of my magnets link even when the dots don't all face the same way, and that was advantageous here.
  4. Royals Area control where you influence the nobles of various countries across several different periods of time. For this I used the "everybody gets one" CoCo I got so everyone could get one of the double wells, and am also utilizing DMG's card stands
  5. Man, all the cool starfleet battle games need painting...I suck at painting...
  6. A game of Royals at my friendly local game store, featuring DMG card stands and my pass-them-out-to-players CoCo tiles
  7. Robinson Crusoe One of the most brutal cooperative games ever conceived, we are marooned on an island and must survive long enough to be rescued by a passing ship.
  8. I have a picture of them in use for Pandemic Legacy, but spoilers. And I have only actually played Near and Far ONCE...to my displeasure. I chose it for the pic because I remember it having a lot of components so I wanted to get a good example for that display. I need to capture them actually in use more often! I have used them so far in: Five Tribes, Ticket to Ride, Pulsar 2849, Gaia Project, Dice Forge (for storing stripped dice faces), Pillers of the Earth, Ethnos, and Dice Town. More games to follow this weekend!
  9. The CoCos are HERE! I got 2 in Benge wood. I got them lest friday and have so far used them for every game I've put on the table this week. They're working great, thank you DMG On the left, my Pass-em-Around CoCo, and the right is the Bank/Personal one. The Bank/Personal gives me a variety of tiles for all different game tokens, whether to use as a back or as an individual organizer. The Pass-em-Around is meant so that every player (up to 5) can get their own little tile with the two wells and also a card stand for hidden objectives/rolls. The Deck and Card Stand tiles are gravy, although upon reflection and testing I should have just gotten 3 extra squares. Then all players could have gotten a Double and a Square. A combination of both CoCos used for a mock-setup of Near and Far And finally, my entire Dog Might collection so far (+3 more card stands not depicted). Still have a Traveler Dice Tower coming next!
  10. These look gorgeous. Perhaps along a long edge, put little grooves for built-in card stands?
  11. Shifting gears, anyone interesting in watching the World Cup even though the US didn't qualify?
  12. Just the dice. Someday...someday.
