  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!

    - 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!

  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.

    You should also post your picture of playing Near and Far under the new thread showing CoCo's in use while gaming. I love Near & Far. I'm looking forward to the expansion arriving soon.

    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!

  5. 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!


  6. Went and got a 5 pack of card stands.  I couldn't justify it to myself...then they went on sale.

    So what started as just component collectors has become...well...a DMG collection.  Once everything is here there will be pics.

    P.S. I was showing off your Adv Case, Dragon Sleeve and Hero Sleeve at my convention this past weekend and everyone was very impressed.  A couple of people there who said the work with wood gushed over them.

  7. From September through this past Tuesday, some friends and I played Legends of Andor each week, going from beginning to end across all 3 main games (17 total missions).  We had a repeat a few due to losing, so we played roughly 20 games.  There were weeks i simply didn't bother putting it away.

    We are about to start Pandemic Legacy as our next co-op continuity excursion.  Wish us luck!

    Ooooooh aaaaaaaah! Dark walnut looks so nice and as far as Larping goes seems like a pretty smart pic for fitting the feel! You fit 10 micro games in there? Cool. Also looks so nicely organized! Sheath is also shiny, but mostly I’m just kicking myself because putting your tiny d6 in there was brilliant and I’m definitely going to copy you. Benge looks sharp! Such a nice wood and doesn’t get enough love. Thanks for sharing. ??‍♀️?

    Thanks!  I don't own any minis so I wanted the minis slot specifically to hold different dice instead.   in that case is:

    Carcassone: Dice

    Modus/Kano (which is 3 games in one group of pieces)

    Love Letter

    Roll For It (and 6 sets of mini-dice for it in a tray I had that happens to fit inside perfectly)


    Left Center Right

    The red and white pegs for a bunch of little wooden games I have and the boards are elsewhere.

    Metal balls for some handheld tilty mazes.

    This is awesome, oh my gosh!!! I love seeing the intent and reason behind your customization choices - like the fire theme you've got going on. That's awesome.

    In your third photo, what are the little wooden squares in the bottom half, right side of the case? They look nice.

    Those tiles, and the black and white cone shaped things next to them, create 3 different abstract strategy games that collectively are known as "Karo" but was renamed by the Marbles Brain Store as "Modus."  The tiles get arranged into three different boards, and the cones are the pieces in each game that follow different rules.



  10. So now that I have 3 DMG things, I thought I'd finally post them to show them off!  Photo Dump GO!

    First of all, my Adventure Case in dark walnut.  I went with the flaming sword because I thought it would look great closed or set up as the GM screen because it doesn't matter if it's upside down!




    I attend a medieval LARP,  and my character runs a gaming table in the tavern as a business, so naturally I intend to bring my adventure case as a cool box to hold games in, rather than keep it at home holding dice.  Here it is with 6 full microgames and pieces for a couple of others stored inside, ready to display at Teridan's Gaming Table!


    Continuing the flames theme, I got a Dragon Sheath also in walnut, which holds my fire themed dice.


    Here's my Hero Sleeve in benge wood with Galaxy Dice too.  Didn't need a full Bone Box and (at the time) didn't know I'd be getting the wonderful gifted discount that lead to the Adv Case and Sheath.  But I'm happy to have it for a more compact dice transport, and I may use it at LARP as well to hold wooden dice in the future.


    Thank you Dog Might for this wonderful stuff!  The case has become the centerpiece of my gaming display at home, with the other two also in attendance.  I'm excited to get the Travel Dice Tower and my CoCos to join them.
