I am interested in producing a game where tiddly winks are the creatures that you flip onto a game mat. I bought two boxes of a generic tiddly winks game and scavenged them for pieces.

Here is the problem. The standard pieces are small (1.6cm or about 9/16 inches). I need to be able to mark these tokens as one type of creature and not another, but when the pieces are so small it makes differentiating between them difficult. There are a few larger winks used for flipping the smaller one over. These are 2.2cm or 7/8". They flip well enough on their own and are just big enough that I can pretty them up with a little art. Unfortunately, I only have two of these per color. I need at least 10.

Does anyone have large tiddly winks, or know where I could buy some? Winks are more than just discs; they must have round edges to flip (or "tiddle") well. Poker chips are not the answer, but maybe an unusually large wink-like button could substitute. Or something. I don't know!

I've been surfing the web for an hour, but it has been no help. If anyone in the community can hook me up with a tiddly winks supplier, I would be grateful.

Thanks! I had been looking for the Plastics for Games site specifically, but could not recall the name.
