- Dice sets (for Dungeons & Dragons, for example)
- Dice trays
- Dice towers
- Token replacements (like metal coins)
- Token storage
Places to buy accessories
Board Games don’t get the same sort of love that other hobbies/interests too, especially in India - so making custom merchandise like a t-shirt, poster, stickers, etc that are board game themed are great ideas!
