Finally picking this project backup! Here’s my first iteration of my custom player pieces. The idea is that settlements simply lay flat on the board, but once a settlement is upgraded to a city, the game piece sits on an elevated pedestal.
Doing my best make everything friction fit, mostly through good old trial and error!
The settlement pieces will all be walnut with different geometric animal vectors scored on both sides of the “token”. Each animal/player will also have a different color acrylic ring/gear cog border to make it easier to decipher between players on the board. The pedestal is acrylic as well. Trying to decide if the pedestal will all be the same color, or if I should color match to the various player colors.
Looking forward to any feedback, suggestions, or comments!
