Alysia and I have a huge shelf full of boardgames, and many of them are full of stuff. Miniatures, map tiles, funky dice, chips and countless other little widgets — many of which seem like they could be pretty useful at the gaming table. And yet, for some reason I’ve never thought to give this a try!

Have you cannibalized boardgames for RPG goodies before? If so, which ones? What are the most creative uses you’ve found for boardgame bits?
