The popularity of board games is on the rise again. With more and more people across different age groups taking to cardboard and counters for their after work de-stress as opposed to screens and electronic devices, games have become more diverse, with more choice on offer for the prospective gamer than ever before. One ever-popular feature appears again and again, the use of miniatures.
