For Christmas 2012 Mr Awesome received, amongst many other cool and spectacular things, a board game called 'Munchkin Quest'. If you do not know of this game, then the instructions are too long and varied for me to summarise the 20 page rulebook, but if you are really interested you can find it online here.
Assuming that you are not interested, what should be made clear is that this game consists of lots of pieces. In fact, if you add up all of the tokens, coins, counters and other items it comes to a perfectly round 500 little pieces of 'stuff', which are great fun to play with but hard work to sort out.
After the first game, Mr Awesome (being the practical sort) wanted something to keep all of the little pieces in, and asked if we could buy or make some little drawstring bags. We had a little look for something of this kind when we popped into Hobbycraft last week, but failing to find anything that wasn't glittery and wedding themed proved impossible. But then we spotted these by the door:
Before baking the pieces in the oven I brushed on small amount of antique silver mica powder, to give the effect of aged and blackened metalwork.
