For example, the necessary cards in the card game, the necessary dice in the dice game, and the necessary game board in the board game. Eastar can currently provide you with more and more samples of various accessories for board games.

Punchboards in board games are widely used, and almost all irregular cardboard models need to be used. For example, tiles, and tokens in Frostpunk need to be spliced with punchboards of different shapes during the game. Another example is the masks in Etherfields, they need to be spelled standers to use. Generally, the punchboards are divided into two types: single-layer and double-layer. The thickness of the single-layer punchboard is about 2.2mm, while the double-layer punchboard is about 3.8mm. In game production, if a higher quality is required, it is more suitable to choose double-layer punchboards, which will have functionality. Many board games use magnetic punchboards. As an upgraded version of the single-layer punchboard, it needs to be equipped with a product with magnetic or iron-containing powder on the back as an adsorbent, which provides great convenience for board games.
In addition to punchboards, the production of rulebooks, scorepads, and artbooks is also an integral part of board games. In addition to paper, these are more important for binding and printing. Usually, the binding methods of rulebooks in board games are divided into saddle-stitching, folding, or spiral binding. For rulebooks with fewer pages, saddle-stitching is more appropriate. For thicker rulebooks, glue, wire, or hard packs are all suitable. In addition, it is also a good choice for the rulebook bound by the coil book. If the book cover is dark, to prevent scratches, it is recommended to use an anti-scratch film, which can not only significantly improve the appearance but also improve the quality.
Although puzzles cannot be divided according to conventional board games, from the definition, they always belong to tabletop games. Of course, puzzles occasionally appear in some German board games as part of board game accessories. It is mainly composed of three parts, namely white cardboard, CCNB, and greyboard. To ensure correct die-cutting, the die-cutting line of each puzzle should not be less than 3mm, and each puzzle should preferably be larger than 20x20mm to ensure the quality of each process and quality. Likewise, the use of a laminated finish on the back of the puzzle is not recommended.
