A device for collecting board game pieces into a piece bag comprises a flexible board cover with a perimeter defining a first opening that may be secured to the game board, and a collar defining a passageway that may be secured to the piece bag. The board cover is preferably made out of mesh fabric and the perimeter is defined by elastic which when stretched is bigger than the board and when contracted is smaller than the game board. The collar may be secured to the piece bag by VELCRO or snaps. Alternatively, the collar is secured to the bag by an exterior bag formed integrally with the board cover section. The invention contemplates a board game packaged with such a device. A method for collecting pieces from a game board into a piece bag comprises securing the piece bag to a collector bag having a funnel opening, securing the collector bag to the game board, inverting the game board so that the pieces fall into the collector bag device, through the funnel opening, and into the piece bag, removing the collector bag from the game board, and removing the piece bag from the collector bag.
