All-in-all, this one one of my favorite DIY projects because of how perfectly the poker chip tokens fit with this particular game. I absolutely love the way it turned out, and it's a joy to play.
Making poker chips for this game also meant that when I made the custom box, it would have to have a chip rack. Luckily, this was the *second* chip rack I'd made for a custom box, the first being for my old copy of Splendor!
This one all started with me making a whole set of custom poker chip tokens for the game. I mean, the game was just BEGGING for them, so I happily obliged.
Today, I want to share one of my personal favorite game upgrades: my DIY "Deluxe" copy of one of my favorite 2-player games, Jaipur!
Sadly the time has come to part with my Netrunner collection. Netrunner friends have moved on and I don't think I will really get much use out of it anymore. Ebay listing is here, if you or anyone you know is interested:
I think my new avatar has way to much motion... 🤢
When I was a teenager, I collected/played obscure #RPGs. Bushido, Talislanta amoung others. I really miss that time / community. As an adult it is hard to make the time to read through rules and find other people that are willing to play strange games with you...
Did you ever play something other than D&D?
In other news, a blank piece of paper in a typewriter is very intimidating. I know why a lot of writers drink loads of alcohol. Makes you less afraid of typing on that perfectly white space...
#linux is rad. I have been using it nearly 20 years. I still learn new stuff.

Played Letters from Whitechapel tonight for the first time in a while - I'm definitely rusty. I was Jack and the detectives quickly tracked me down, fenced me in, and brought me to justice, all in the first night.
Thanks for joining me for another #MintageMonday, where each week (when I don't forget 😂) I'll post about another set of awesome metal coins you can add to your boardgame collection! See you next Monday!
Or maybe Tuesday... sigh.
They really are awesome, and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to add that clinky little aesthetic boost to their retail copy of Scythe!
They can be purchased separately from (but the 2- and 50-value coins are not included in that set). They're almost so thematic they become themeless, with each coin loosely based on a real-world 19th century coin, and each corresponding to one of the game's 7 country-factions.
Stonemaier was among the first batch of companies making bespoke metal coins for their games when they released the very awesome coins for #Viticulture. They followed suit on quality with these coins, which are some of my favorites!
