One of Geek Native’s most popular competitions so far was a chance to win a set of seven bittrays.
What’s a bittray? Invented by AllRolledUp, the company that created folding neoprene dice trays, the bittray uses a similar idea to become cardholders, token holders, or counter holders so that you have something that looks great on the gaming table, doesn’t get in the way and stops you losing parts of the game.
You can check out some examples of the art and options available.
Geek Native’s giveaway competition last April asked a question; Has a part ever gone missing from one of your board games?
Here are the results;
|It has but we made do without it||55.17%|
|A part has never gone missing from any of my board games||14.48%|
|It has and it meant we couldn’t play the game||30.34%|
There were nearly 300 responses to this question. That’s not all gamers, but it’s a non-trivial number, and we can see that about a third of them have ruined a board game by losing a part.
Geek Native’s survey also shows that most people will lose bits from the board games. Slightly less than 15% of gamers have never had a token, counter or piece go missing.
As it happens, AllRolledUp seems to partner with Kickstarter projects reasonably often so that their iconic classic dice trays are parts of add-ons on high-level pledges. Perhaps we’ll see bittrays being part of more board game?
