Welcome to a little bit of a different article for The White Book. This time, we bring you a product review (and recommendation)!
Some of you may already know of the gaming product company Dog Might. In fact, longtime listeners of the show may also remember that we propped their very first product Kickstarter some years ago with some incredibly sweet wooden deck boxes and the associated web-based product builder that let you choose from a huge variety of woods, finishes, detailing, patterns, etc. Alas, gone now are the days of the overly intricate product builder, but the amazing quality of products remains the same.
In fact, they’ve only expanded on products in the time since we last visited them!
This year at GenCon 50, my wife and I bumped into them once again on the showroom floor. While chatting with Mike and in general catching up on life and business since we last saw each other, he also caught us up on some of the new products that they’ve crafted in the meantime.
In particular, their new token organization system really caught our eyes. Just like all of their products, it’s handcrafted from a variety of woods in some very rich tones and colors. They’re solid and offer a multitude of storage space, divot, hole, and slot options so that you can tailor them to your needs for a specific game. Say you just need a big pool of gold tokens? You can do it! Say you need a small pool and somewhere to stand up some kind of card or marker? You can do it!
The other big draw, though, is the magnetic system. Each of the four sides of the tiles features a small magnet with the two opposite edges bearing the same North/South orientation. This way you can snap a wide selection of the wooden tiles together into the exact arrangement and configuration that fits your table or setup. They’re almost like Legos for game organization!
In the end, my wife, Kristen, and I highly recommend them and found them quite useful for some sample kitchen table games of Ascension, Machi Koro, and Legend of the Five Rings. Check this awesome company out at www.dogmight.com. (Full disclosure, we were provided a review copy of this product.)
