Tanks AlotUnited States
Sometimes I see great ideas or come up with something that just makes the game more fun or easy to play/keep track of...
Conflict of Heroes- An abacus- $10 at Ikea. Great for keeping track of defense point, die rolls etc.
Twilight Struggle/Command and colors Epics/Memoir 44 overlord- Card holders. Makes any game where you are holding cards and moving stuff on the board a lot more fun.
Combat Commander- A laser pointer- Great for checking LOS. Home dpot $10
Memoir 44/ 1960 or any games- Mini poker chips- Need a marker to mark a unit as used? Out of red and blue cubes for 1960?
$2 a color- I suggest red and blue
War at Sea/Tide of Iron- Cotton Balls painted with an orange die and yellow die dabbed with a little glue. Sure makes those hits look pretty cool!
Natural Reader software- www.naturalreader.com Paste in the text of a game manual.. or at least part and let the software read to you while you look at the units. Sure beats taking the glasses on and off but the robotic voice can take some getting used to.
Realplayer- Realplayer can download youtube clips into files that can be copied to, and played on your IPAD/Android phone. Great for teaching games or a video review for other players while you set up the game.
