Not only am I a fan of board games, but I am a BIG fan of little things that game designers and others in the process do to make their game just a little bit more special. To me, it really shows that they care about us little guys buying and playing their games. Isn't that sweet? :')
Well, wipe your eyes kiddies. And read on. Here are my top 3 little things that make a big difference to me in my favorite board games.
3. The Right Sized Box
Now, this may not seem like a big deal to some people, but all of us true gamers know, it is. It is probably one of the most annoying things in the world to have not only no sense of function in a board game box, but also just have it be so big that there is no point in even trying to create order. The sound of game pieces sliding around a box as I'm putting it away is like nails on a chalkboard. Having an awesome insert to organize all the components, or just enough pieces to exactly fill the box is so greatly wonderful and appreciated. Love it!
