RPG a Day - Day 27: What are your essential tools for good gaming?

posted Aug 27, 2017, 11:06 AM by James Pearson
This one seems a little open for interpretation, so here's mine.  Today I'm going to talk about my "kit".  
My gaming kit is perfect for playing at the table, or on the road at Con's.  I took an old Backgammon game, which you can usually find at rummage sales or Goodwill for around $1.00, and I took out all the insides.  Next, I've lined one side with some felt.  This is the dice rolling side.  The other side has a dry erase board.  I purchased a very inexpensive dry-erase board from the dollar store, cut it to size, and glued it to the box.
My kit contains:
  • A blue Sharpie Pen (my favorite writing tool)
  • A Kuru Toga mechanical pencil.  By far the best pencil I've ever had
  • A dry erase marker, fine tip
  • My GameScience dice.  I have a real love for these dice right now and have abandoned all others.
Of course, at the gaming table I usually have a notebook, prep sheets, gaming books and the like.  

Someday, I'll figure out some cool way to decorate the Kit, but for now it's very functional and looks decent.
