Earlier this year, Parker Brothers decided to retire one of Monopoly’s game tokens. The token that got booted by popular vote? THE IRON! The announcement was seriously like a dagger to my heart (wait, that’s Clue). The iron and the wheelbarrow are my tokens, man! What kind of world do we live in that doesn’t have an iron in a Monopoly set?
Those that have been around a while know that sometimes the little devil in me starts thinking and that is always trouble. Why am I letting Parker Brothers decide my board gaming fate? I’m creative there’s no reason I can’t have any object I want for a game token. But wait – why limit myself or my family? We can all have custom game tokens!
That begins my first ever Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material Design Team member project – Custom game pawns. This project is most excellent for all skill levels and ages and is a darn good way to spend time together over Thanksgiving. After you make them, you can play with them or save them for Christmas when everyone is back to together again. Stop by the Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material blog to see supply list, instructions, tips, ideas and all of the test pawns Emily and I made. We really had a ball and had somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 ideas for other little pawns we could make.
