This is a modular game board with slots cut out for placing stones or marbles. I’m sure you could use this with any assorted stone placement game (go, tic-tac-toe, or whatnot).

I’m using this to learn what the friends and I decided to call “5-ago” you can read about the similar commercial game Pentago at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentago or http://www.pentago.se/ENRules.pdf


As I intended the stones to stay in place when the board is being moved(a move in Pentago involves rotating a quadrant of the board), they don’t come out easily unless the board is dumped out. If you’re playing a game where the stones are frequently removed, you should consider modifying them.

I was in a hurry when I printed these so the size is smaller than some people may like. Scale it up if you see fit.

Now to figure out how to put it in tracks like the commerical game and tempt litigation.

...bet I could make it work with tbuser's fasteners... hmmm...

Yeah, I was trying to avoid any shenanigans with IP stuff. Thingiverse needs more fully print and play games though. I'm trying to find other interesting ones that don't require any cards with text or boards with art so I can make some more.

You know i've made a paper cutter that could cut printed cards out of paper. Made it for the decoder ring and no one's tried it out yet but theoretically you could print cards on paper and cut them all out using something like that to identical sizes.

’m more concerned about avoiding rules text on cards for copywrite issues. I have a paper cutter available to me in my office so that isn’t the problem.
