Plastic Brain Pieces...

I'm developing a game that involves players swapping brains.

I need to find some kind of plastic brain tokens that come in different colors.

Ideally they'd also be able to connect with a figure somehow but that can wait.

If you are simply prototyping

If you are simply prototyping I wouldn't even worry about getting an exact model yet. (It sounds like you don't have the whole game down yet if you don't know if it hooks to models or not) just use card representations, colored tiddlywinks, bits, etc until you have an idea set. You can get plastic pieces molded to your specifications really easily at the end once you know exactly how many, the colors, and whatnot. Anyone with a 3d printer can Make little brain models if you need it.

Check litko. They already

Check litko. They already have a couple different brain tokens made from 3mm acrylic, and are very reasonable for custom orders/shapes/etc. I recommend sending them an email with the exact specs of what you are looking for

I have an *idea*, which may or may not help.

The Game Crafter has *wedge-dishes* from Trivial Pursuit. Maybe the dish could be a BRAIN and the *Wedges* you put in (of different colours) are the various parts of the brain (Frontal lobe, Temporal lobe, Cerebral cortex, Parietal lobe, Occipetal lobe, Cerebellum).

The above link shows what functions are managed by which part.

Not sure how your game works - but a dish can have six (6) brain sections, each one can be a different colour... Just some ideas...

ALTERNATIVELY you could go in another direction - and implement your OWN brain functions for the different parts of the brain. This fictitious type of brain might be more appropriate to your game. Again I don't know how your game is played so these are just game ideas...

Just like that, but when I looked I thought it said I needed to buy at least 100 pounds (currency) worth. :\

Thanks for the suggestion but in the game you just need the brain to show which player is controlling which body. No separate functions required. Cool idea though.

When I checked it say you can buy "50" for 0.24 pounds each. The amount would therefore be 12 pounds which is about $20 USD. BUT the minimum ORDER is 100 pounds.

So indeed you are right about 100 pound minimum...

Yeah. College student making games as a hobby... Can't shell out that kinda dough for way more pieces than I need. Maybe if this game goes anywhere lol. But i'll live without them for now.
