Greetings all. I would like to see about the cost of a set of pieces for a medieval board game called Rithmomachy.

The pieces are triangles, squares, and circles (each about the size of a quarter) that would be black on one side, white on the other, and have a number on both sides. There would be about 50 pieces per full game set.

I would assume the full color sandstone would be best for this. Would someone be able to assist with this project? Thanks!

"Worst case" scenario (all pieces squares):

((25mm x 25mm x 4mm) * 50 pieces) * $0,99 per cm³ + $1,50 = $125,25


...minus a little bit because triangles and circles requiere less material than squares.

What do you think about these ?

The slightly rounded surfaces should make it easier to pick the pieces up.... and they decrease the necessary material.

At the moment I'm somewhere around 75 bucks for printing (without the pyramids)... much better than 125. ^^
