I am trying to do a print and play as a learning experience before attempting my own game and I am looking for a store that can sell decent quality parts for games.

I understand that a prototype is supposed to be work in progress, but I am looking at making custom games for myself and my playgroup, more than just getting something to playtest on. So these will be as close to final as I can make them. While if they are good enough I may look at publishing... this is not the goal.

Anyway, as I am pretty new I am looking for resources to buy parts. Namely little wooden discs of various and preferably colours as well as "Euro" style cubes and cylinders.

I am planning to print on adhesive paper and then cut them out and stick them the pugs... I am hoping to find a place that sells all sorts of cool pugs in different sizes and with luck colours. I am not opposed to plastic, but I think wooden might be better.

I live in Australia, so if the internet store was Australian that would be perfect.

These are some pugs a mate of mine (whom I am not longer in contact with) used to make DUNE.

This is the kind of thing I am talking about, as in wooden pugs of different sizes, though plastic is usable as well and might be easier to get in different colours.

This website is exactly what I need a internet store called Print Play Games. The problem is that it is in America and the shipping charges to Australia are extremely expensive.

So I am looking for a store that has parts like this in AU... if anyone knows any

Have Fun and ROLL HIGH

I feel your pain

Have you had a look at Spielmateriel.de?

They're in Germany but the shipping is quite reasonable and they have all kinds of great stuff.

Howdy! Good question, I'm

Howdy!

Good question, I'm really keen in some of the answers you get.

Some resources I've found:

Milsims (http://www.milsims.com.au/catalog/1188) have a whole stack of unbranded accessories, such as 8mm & 10mm wooden cubes, bricks, carrots, plastic brains (unfortunately, on back-order), and other miscellaneous goods.

There's several companies that do custom accessory cutting, such as http://www.craftumi.com.au/ and http://onlinelasercutting.com.au/. The latter cuts as much as you want from a sheet ~ 600mm x 300mm, for $25. So you could get a fair few meeples or discs cut out of a sheet that size.

Good luck!
