Introduction: Minitile

Picture of Minitile

What is a fun game? What are the differences between a game and a toy?

Everyone might have a different explanation of what a fun game is, so it is hard to create a game for everyone. Yet, a toy is something that people play with and without limitations of how to play it.

People love to create, and are creative in their own ways. The best toy example is Lego. It never dies; it’s been there forever. We enjoy the freedom creating anything from those colorful bricks. You don’t have to be an artist or a designer to build Legos, but just do whatever you want and have fun.

I love to play mini-golf. It’s a game for everyone, not limited to genders or ages; you just hit the ball and watch it go to work. It is unpredictable, and that is why it is fun. Most of time, not having fun means losing the game. A game should be like anyone’s game, so we don’t play games that are not fun.

Mini-Tiles for everyone! Here, I design a game\toy for everyone to enjoy. You create your own track, make up the game play, and enjoy the track you just created! This is a toy and a game. In this game, you build to play.

Here I show simple instructions of how to make your own tile, and share a sample vector drawing for straight and turning tiles in illustrator.

The model was made in plywood. All the materials I used for this project are plywood, wood glue, paints, primers, and a clear acrylic ball to play with.

Feel free to ask me any questions!

Awesome, I think cardboard will be a good material too. You know board for hardcover book.

This is a brilliant little toy/game, and it's somewhat similar to something I've been thinking about doing for a certain small person of my acquaintance for Christmas. Though of course I don't have a "laser cutting machine" so it would need to be hand cut, and I was thinking of including ramp elements too.

Hi, this is really nice. How exactly does the joining mechanism work though?

khuang3 (author)ThePiMan2013-06-23

It hold each other together by itself!

it's like crossing your fingers together, try it with your hands :)

hugamo67 (author)2012-05-18

it looks fun, but i have no idea where i eould happen to get a laser-cut machine

TangMu (author)2012-05-18

These look really fun, the only thing I would suggest would be to make the joining mechanism universal to allow for the parts to be rotated the other way around (so that the corners can be going the other direction as well) - you could do this using either two or four of the "biscuit" tabs offset around the centre so that they would combine no matter which way around the tile is orientated.

Hope that isn't too confusing... O_o

khuang3 (author)TangMu2012-05-18

that sounds great! thanks for your suggestion. I'll make more improvement for sure :)

What a great idea for a game! This looks like it could be sold in a toy store - very clean, modern design. How do you play? Do you flick the marble or do you have small clubs?

khuang3 (author)LanceMakes2012-05-16

yes! flick the marble to play! shoot the marbles from the end of the track.

urtlesquirt (author)2012-05-15

Looks great, and fun too!

khuang3 (author)urtlesquirt2012-05-15

thanks a lot! glad you like it :)
