I'm now the proud owner (well, technically... I won't have them for two weeks or so) of 270 pawns. No, not chess pawns - generic game board pawns in 6 colors (the kind used in various other board games).
I plan to use them in a P&P game for markers on a battle mat. I wouldn't have bought them, because I'm not sure I'm going to run the game and if I do it'll be far in the future, but the price was so good (around 4 cents/pawn counting all expenses - bulk price of 1000 of one color is 3.5 cents and I don't want to buy 6000 to get 6 colors since that comes to ~200, and cheapest non-bulk price I could find was 15 cents/pawn not counting shipping) that I couldn't pass it up. Originally, I was going to buy stone counters for the purpose, but that would have cost $15+shipping for 120 stones in 6 colors. Also, I like pawns better since they're meant for the purpose and the shape makes it easier to move them around on the board when there are many in adjecant hexes.
