I think we can all agree the 90’s were the best. While I enjoyed the nerf guns and tomagotchis (RIP), my sister was playing with her Barbies and Easy-Bake oven. But one of my fondest memories, that brought both family and friends together, was boardgames. These included Candyland, Clue, Checkers, Yahtzee, Trouble and my favorite: Sorry! Although not all were debuted in the decade, they will make any 90’s kid nostalgic.
Each of these games came with colorful playing pieces. I will never forget how frustrating it was, however, when a game piece went missing. Either the dog chewed one up, or a sibling broke one in half. To compromise, we used other objects around the house, maybe a thumbtack or a nickel. In a world today where 3D printers are becoming more common, imagine being able to print the necessary piece at your disposal. Unfortunately, current printers would require you to buy $50 of one color at a time. So, if you lose a red game piece but have green filament, you are either out of luck or you have to purchase a $50 spool of red filament. Spectrom allows you to print in a variety of colors and any length of filament. Check out our examples below. What do you think?
