A Small Piece of Things Can Often Play An Extraordinary Role-The Importance of Tokens In Board Games
As we all know, board games are often adapted from some well-known novels or stories, such as Dungeons and Dragons, Gloomhaven, pathfinder, etc., so that players can not only feel the fun of the game, but also learn some history during the game. The story can be said to be a leisure way that integrates education and entertainment.
In a broad sense, board games are mainly divided into two types, one is called chess and the other is called card games; according to the age, one is called ancient chess and the other is called modern board games; according to the current classification, table games Games can also be divided into puzzle PLU, role-playing RPG, battle-based board games, etc.; in addition, board games are divided into eight types on BBG: Abstract Games, Customizable Games, Children's Games, Family Games, Party Games, Strategy Games, Thematic Games, Wargames. Of course, no board game strictly belongs to which genre (there may even be mixed genres). It all depends on your own judgment as a player.
In the game, we often need different cards to play the game. These may be character cards, skill cards or equipment cards. According to different types of board games, a large number of cards may be extended; in addition, we also need some Things to record our state and effects in the game, so some board games will be equipped with tokens as a way to record some states, for example, gloomhaven will give away some small discs that represent the state.
Today, let us talk about some interesting tokens that may add some color to your board games.
