We play a lot of games at work at lunch time. Many of the games we play have secret roles and secret votes (games like Avalon, and Secret Hitler). Those roles/votes are printed on cards which are given to each player at the start of the game.
The problem is that after a while, the cards we use get marked somehow. Which makes certain secrets a lot less secret. We’ve used card sleeves, but those get used up or marked pretty quickly too.
Once I get my GF, I’m hoping to cut some tokens out of something that is a little more permanent than card-stock. Ideally, I’d like something that is not easily marked. Currently, I’m thinking of cutting them out of acrylic. Perhaps black acrylic, and etching the roles/votes on the front and painting the etches white.
My only concern is that fingerprints will show up on them fairly easily (“marking” them somewhat temporarily). We can clean off the fingerprints before each game.
I figured there is a really deep fountain of knowledge here on this forum. Does anyone have any better ideas than acrylic for making non-marking game role indicators?
Thanks for any insights.
