You don’t actually need a board to make a gameboard. You can make a fully usable prototype board that will be good for dozens of playtests using only cardstock and scotch tape.


I make a lot of prototypes. Most of them, I end up quickly revising, and within a week or two, I’m replacing many of the components – often the board too. So I’ve developed a method for building game boards that is fully functional, but is also cheap, quick, and highly portable.
