Introduction: HOW TO: Folding Multi-Game Board

About: I am a maker. As founder of MakerBlog, I enjoy sharing my creations with others.

Ever wanted an inexpensive, portable game board?  Well, you can make your own!
 What you need:
   8x8 in. sheet of cardboard or preferably Masonite
   Duct tape (OF COURSE!)
   Scroll saw (or hacksaw)
   A white colored pencil
   and.... and......WHAT?  That's all?
       Well, let's get started.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Cutting the Masonite

   Cut your piece of Masonite into quarters (using your scrollsaw).  Label each quarter on both sides with a number (1-4) and place them in order (as shown in picture).  Tape on each side with Duct Tape as shown in pictures.

Step 2: Customizing Your Game Board

When the board is completely unfolded, draw your largest game (checkers, chess, snakes and ladders, etc.) on one of the sides of the board. Draw your mini games on the other side in the four different quadrants (tic tac toe, dots and boxes, etc.). If you do not have Masonite you can use cardboard. You have completed your own travel-sized game board! Congratulations!  Pat yourself on the back!

   Please vote for me!   Were I to win the Hurricane Laser Challenge I would use the laser cutter to make my Instructables more individual (for instance, custom cut cases and gears) and I would also use it to cut custom wall plaques.  I plan to use it in business by selling wooden puzzle boxes and other assorted toys on ebay.  I would attempt to cut my first custom clock case and I would also try to take my own antique looking furniture.  Please vote for me!!
