For our 4 man game last night I decided to ditch the card hazard icons and swap them for some simple 8mm metal nuts from a hardware shop. Here are a few reasons why I think this was a stroke of genius (I’m proper modest me):
1. They have a satisfying heft and are really cheap to buy
2. They fit the theme of the game well, nuts falling off your car as you do crazy things seems to work well.
3. You can shout “NUTS!” when something goes wrong
4. The possibilities for innuendo are magnificent. One player is quoted as saying “You are going to have to take the nuts on the chin” after someone rolled badly with a skid check
