Work great when scaled too. I'm about half way though printing out a set to make a 7x7 board for Brandubh, and I'm printing this out at 40% size. Makes each space about 20mm, not counting the dividing lines.

Hi HoagieBoy,
This could be exactly what I need. However, the file dimensions seem huge? 50mmx50mm for example. Are these units right? are they in millimetres or centimetres?

How would you make a checker board using these files?

How many of each color would you need?

The checker board I am picturing is only red and black.

Assuming you want a board without edges, and with the dividers coloured to match, then for each colour (red and black) it would be:

2 corners

12 edges

14 edgebeams

18 centres

42 beams

This should give something that has a layout like the attached rendering.

Keep in mind that this will make for a fairly large board if printed at the provided scale. The overall board will be 47cm across.

nice work.

probably should have gotten around to uploading my version of bowtie connected tiles but got involved with other projects.

will have to try out that beer game!


This is the first thing I've seen that really makes me want a Thingomatic!

I really like the idea of designing and printing/cutting your own games... I've made a few game-related things myself!
