This is a playingfield for the card game "Dominion". It helps to store and sort the decks of cards and reduces the space they need on the table.

There are enough cases (24) to play the game with all expansions.

This thing was created in the fab lab at RWTH Aachen University: http://hci.rwth-aachen.de/fablab


The playingfield has to be cut out of a 3mm board with a laser cutter. I used a MDF board but you can also use other materials.

Cut the blue lines first, then the black lines.

The arrangement of the parts is optimized for two boards. The size of the first one has to be at least 600mm x 300mm, the second one at least 400mm x 200mm.

Use the building instructions to assemble the parts.

Do not laser cut PVC, Vinyl, Neoprene!

Where are instructions on how to assemble this? I'm going to be 3D printing this via a website - not myself - so I need to know how many of each piece I need to print?

The quantity of each part is listed in BOM.ods

I case you can't open ods files, here is the list:
Part Number - Quantity
Part01 - 2
Part02 - 1
Part03 - 2
Part04 - 4
Part05 - 2
Part06 - 2
Part07 - 5
Part08 - 10
Part09 - 10

Is there any way you could post an stl with the entire thing assembled?

Sure. See Thing Files > Dominion_playingfield.stl

Can you make these as stl files?

Awesome, thank you!

Can sleeved cards (name FFG ones) fit into the playfield slots?
If not, would you be able to do a variant which could?

I think it should fit though I don't know the exact size of your sleeves. The slot size is 95mm / 3,74" x 62mm / 2,441".

I'd love to see some 'action shots', with the play field actually in use. Can you store the cards inside when not in use?

I added an 'action shot' to the gallery.

Unfortunately one can not store cards inside but you can leave the basic cards in their tray to save some time for next setup.

I uploaded a new version to avoid some parts from getting lost without gluing them.

Furthermore the dxf-files now have two layers, so you can cut the holes first and then the outlines.

New building instructions will follow soon.


I added a pdf file with building instructions to show you how to assemble the parts.
