It’s the end of the year so it’s that time for the inevitable “of the Year” lists. Here is my 2020 Gaming Accessory of the Year.
To be eligible for this category, the item must be an accessory to a boardgame or wargame meaning it is not mechanically necessary for play but which somehow enhances the play experience. It must also have been released in the 2020 calendar year. For a near-complete listing of all the gaming accessories I acquired in 2020 (including some items not eligible for this list) please see my GeekList 2020 RockyMountainNavy Gaming Acquisitions and look for entries labeled “ACCESSORY.”
Presented in alphabetical order:
- Aircraft Data Cards for Downtown, Elusive Victory, and Red Storm via Game Crafters
- The Naval SITREP #58-59 from Admiralty Trilogy Games
- Root: Resin Clearing Markers from Leder Games
- Root: Upgrade Kit also from Leder Games
- Scythe: Complete Rulebook from Stonemaier Games
My 2020 Gaming Accessory of the Year
Aircraft Data Cards for Downtown, Elusive Victory, and Red Storm. Not essential for play but having them makes play go so much faster with the right data at your fingertips with little need to cross-reference or otherwise search for what you are looking for. I deeply appreciate GMT Games allowing these cards to be published through Game Crafters using game art.
