Intro: Make a Shogi Set in About an Hour Using Recycled Materials
I will be showing you how I made a Shogi set out of recycled cardboard. This was a gift for a good friend of mine for Christmas.
**Rules of Shogi can be found at: http://www.genedavissoftware.com/rules/
Step 1: Materials
-Cardboard (at least 9.5x9.5 inch, or whatever size you want)
-scissors (To cut cardboard and index cards. I used pocket knives)
-Glue (Glue stick works perfectly.)
Step 2: Step 1: Cut Out Board
Cut out the board from the cardboard piece. I measured mine at 9.5x9.5 inches, to leave about 1/2 inch of edge. You can cut this to whatever dimensions you like, as long as you can divide it by 9.
Step 3: Step 2: Measure/draw Boxes
pretty self explanatory. Measure out your side lengths (The sides of mine are 9 inches each, to make 1 square inch boxes) and then draw the lines to
Step 4: Step 3 (Optional): Color Squares
This is optional, but suggested in order to make the board look better. At the very least you should take pencil and color in every other square..
Step 5: Step 4: Make Pieces
I used the templates for the pieces that were included at the Gene Davis Software website, which I will include as PDFs, to make my pieces. I cut cardboard to the appropriate size and then glued the templates on.
