Step 2: Making your game boards
The game boards are made of paper and printed on a standard black and white printer. I drew my game boards by hand in Microsoft Paint (ghetto, I know), then copied them to a Word file which I printed out. The Word files (both .doc and .docx) are attached below.
I would have preferred to have made the boards in Adobe Illustrator, because then they would be vector images and would be infinitely scalable. However I made them during some downtime at work, where I don't have access to Adobe products. If and when I finish the vector versions I will upload them here.
The Steps are:
*Pic. 1* Print out the attached game boards, or draw and print your own. To keep the boards thin, I printed mine double sided (for example, one side is a Chess board, the other side is Backgammon).
*Pic. 2* Cut out the boards with scissors. Make sure they fit comfortably in the Altoids tin.
*Pic. 3* Using the packing tape, laminate first one side of a game board.
*Pic. 4* Then laminate the other side.
*Pic. 5* Trim off the excess tape.
*Pic. 6* Repeat until all your boards are laminated. They certainly aren't water proof, but at least now they're water resistant.
