Christmas is fast approaching so I have scoured the internet to find some awesome gifts for board gamers, that aren’t board games!
Metal Coin Upgrades
Metal coin upgrades are probably my favourite board game upgrades, they range from universal unit coins, which are great for all kinds of games, game specific coins (such as Scythe), or theme specific (such as pirate).
A lot of board games come with simple cardboard tokens known as chits, these are often more functional and economical than they are attractive or practical (they can be difficult to handle at times!). Token upgrades often replace these chits with wood or acrylic versions which are more tactile and aesthetically pleasing.
Some other great upgrades are 3D components which simply add visual appeal to an otherwise flat board.
Game inserts are great for speeding up set-up and pack-up of games and can often help during game play too by storing cards/tokens on the table.
The Board Game Geek store has some awesome storage solutions to facilitate game play as well as in-box storage.
Mugs & Meeples

Every board gamer loves meeples, right?
Happy Holidays and Merry Meeples to all!
