I love to take things apart and put them back together. It’s one of the reasons I work in computer security for a living. But more recently, the dropping prices of 3D printing and entirely not dropping prices of wood working have led to a few new hobbies. :D
One component I really love that came with that game was a set of four small plastic bowls that hold the various goods (colored wooden cubes). It’s… kind of brilliant. There are a few other games that could use something like that (cough cough Lords of Waterdeep)… and I have a 3D printer. Let’s make some!
