To fill an order, wood mills will make too much of an item on purpose to account for the inevitable defective parts. Wood isn’t precise or consistent like metal parts. This excess that turns out to be good is called “overruns”. Many customers, including us, will take the overruns but many don’t.
We buy overruns from the wood mills time to time so that’s how we have these painted wood Parcheesi game pieces available for sale. Quantities are limited because we do not normally carry these Parcheesi game pieces in colors – we usually only sell the unfinished version. Take a look and see if your favorite color is available.
