Step-by-step instructions on making a folding game board.

- pressed (not corrugated) cardboard about 1/16" thick
- duct tape
- printable full-sheet labels

Step 1: Cut boards

Cut 4 7.5"x7.5" squares from pressed cardboard. I used Bienfang illustration board
but any pressed (not corrugated) cardboard that's about 1/16" thick will do.
<p>Very good illustration and nice job! We also make game board, feel free to visit us and share comments <a href="http://www.boardgamesmaker.com" rel="nofollow"> www.boardgamesmaker.com</a></p>
<p>Where can you get the pressed (not corrugated) cardboard?</p>
<p>What game is this?</p>
I love this instructable, very detailed and clear. I might have to use this soon als my boardgame &quot;kolonisten van de lage landen&quot; is wearing fast due to excessieve use :-)
It's really nice. But today I in brandbagsales.com bought a bag. Pretty cheap
&nbsp;Thanks for the simple instructions. &nbsp;I have been trying to find ways to make a game board using just a desktop printer. &nbsp;Having 4 A4 size sections works perfectly.<br />
nice. I might use this idea for my math project hmm..do you know pi? tell me if this is right 3.14159265358979323846323846264332643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998. that's all i know by memory :P

Where did you get the pressed cardboard
I've found it at OfficeMax, Staples and occasionally Michael's. I've seen it sold under the brands Bienfang and Elmer's. Usually comes in 20"x30" sheets. The description is typically something like "14 ply illustration board". You can get it online but only in packs of 12, and you only need half a sheet for the game board.
Thanks for the reply. I'm going to swing by office depot and see if they carry it.
That's pretty awesome. I wonder if I could use something like this for a Settlers of Catan mat. Did you design the board game as well?
Yes, my son and I decided on the general layout and I grabbed some images off the web to create the background.
