I really miss the days of chits or simple plastic pieces in board games. Why? Nostalgia? No. It's because I SERIOUSLY CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY $150+ FOR EVERY SINGLE BOARD GAME I WANT TO PLAY. Come on, having a deluxe version is a real option, as is having an "upgrade kit", but even cardboard standees would be better than adding >$100 to the price of every game so you can include photorealistic miniatures.
