Does anyone know where I could find stackable wooden game pieces? Kinda like those Russian dolls that fit inside each other. I'd love to find a set of 4-5 sizes that all stack together for a game I'm working on. Prefer wooden but plastic would do.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if these would be suitable - they stack 'on' and not 'in'.

You could add fourth and fifth tiers by placing them on a wooden disc(s).

This wouldnt be fixed, but you could always drill the discs, along with the underside of the 3 pole counter, and connect them with another dowel stub.

Personally, I really like them, but they are very expensive for some regular pawns sawn into three sections and drilled to accomodate dowel.

A cheaper alternative would be to make your own using bigger pawns

Thanks but I'm really looking at a hollow shape because it is important for the game that any larger piece could cover a smaller piece. It's also important that the piece underneath is completely hidden.

Thanks for the idea though

Blank Unpainted Russian Nesting Dolls

I'm intrigued! Best of luck on your game and I hope to hear more about it soon.

I Googled 'blank unpainted Russian nesting dolls' and came up with a few sites. Sorry to say, I've never bought anything from the sites I've found. Below is a sample.

Thanks!

Thanks! I guess those would work if the bottom was cut off, but they wouldn't slide over each other is my guess. I'm thinking maybe one of those 3D printing services may be able to help me. Anyone have any experience working with a company like that? My design is really simple, just different sized cubes with one side open
