What's in the Box?!

A discussion of exotic components in board games. We’ll talk about some of our favorite weird components, what purpose they serve both mechanically and as part of the player experience, and some considerations about using them in a game whether as a designer or publisher. We’ll talk about our own experiences with these, including our Fireball Island board, Tim’s Burgle Bros. tower, and Geoff’s Space Cadets panoply of pieces.
