    Making A Game Board

    I was curious as to how I might be able to transfer the map of Anuire from the actual map to a game board so that my players won't end up destroying it as easily as they would a game board. BTW, I don't mean gluing the map to a board, but rather I guess using tracing paper? Go to Kinkos? Any other ideas?

    Also, am currently thinking on buying cheap 'gems' that places sell (forgot what they are called) in a bulk bag and using a device to initial certain colors/gems with the domain holders like it's listed in the Ruins of Empire (Mhoried/Mhor = Mh). Any advise on that or comments on what to do alternately?

    Uhm... I didn't mean to send two. I don't know how that happened.

    I have deleted the first thread you started to remove the repeat.

    why dont you just download the anuiremap from the WotC site, which was intended for the Legacy of kings boardgame.

    just print them out, glue them together and you have a map which can be destroyed over and over

    Laminating the map could work. Then you can mark on it with wet-erase or dry-erase markers.

    ::tap:: ::tap:: Is this thing on? Test, one, two,
    three. Check! Check! Check!

    I`ve long been looking for good solutions to the whole game board/map
    issue. Laminating is one way to go, I guess, but that means one
    would have to do the same for all the maps. I`ve long thought that a
    sheet of clear glass on a tabletop would make the perfect surface to
    cover up a game map. You could write on it with pens, spill your Dr.
    Pepper, even spread out on it in a languid pose for some uber-geek
    "glamour" photography.

    But I haven`t tried it. (The sheet of glass, not the
    photography....) I`ve just not seen an appropriate table for
    sale. Has anyone tried something similar?

    I'm kind of afraid of laminating it. I don't want it to end up getting damaged or scrunched or anything of the sort. Heck, I'm even afraid of opening it up on the table since my table is too short. As for the sheet of glass... ditto from above, I'd need a new table and my step-mother is a major (honk,honk,beep!!!!) about adding new items to the house. If I had my own house, then yes I'd definitely have my own table set up for both the map and additional tables for the battle map and any adventuring combat for miniature usage.

    As for the Legacy of Kings, I looked at it and I really don't want to print it out (the only printers I have access to are Black & White).

    PLEXIglass. Big sheets of plexiglass atop folding card tables. Lighter, stronger, doesn't shatter. Works marvelously for all sorts of wargames. Then use grease pencils to write on the acrylic -- lasts well to casual use, but easy to remove when you mean it.
