Hey guys, we have a game moving into playtesting that uses cardboard hex tiles for the board. Anyone have any ideas for creating the tiles?

Looking for cardboard hexes.

If you are just playtesting, I would recommend using hexes from your other games. Settlers of Catan, Samurai, Tikal, are just some that come to mind.

Plus if you don't own them, you can support this noble profession by buying them. And they are fun. :)

If you feel the need to make them, take a look at this thread too. They are talking about creating rectangles, but I am sure you can get some ideas from it.

Thanks...

Thanks for the suggestion.

I've run into a problem with playtesting when using other games parts, however. What has happened to me is that the playtesters (bless their hearts) fall into the mode of comparing the game being tested vs. the game whose parts I'm using. It can be really very frustrating.

I've been using Settlers' tiles for the early testing (with my own labels taped across the top), but I'm ready to move beyond that.

Print them on paper (or direct to cardboard if your printer supports it). Then use spary adhisive and gule it onto the cardboard. Then use scisors, or a hobby knife to cut hem out.

You can use some type of spray sealant to make it more durable if you want.

It worked for me with a prototype for a game I was makeing.
