These trays will hold everything in quite nicely, I presume.

Ah, right. I hadn't understood this aspect. That should be robust, I agree.

Thanks for your input. Please don't take it personally, I just don't think the magnetic solution is the way to go for me.

My persistence is simply born of a desire to make my original proposal understood, not to sell you the idea, since you know the path you want to take now. However, to answer your specific questions above, and for general interest, this diagram hopefully captures the essence of what you have proposed making (top), and the corresponding magnetic solution (bottom) (tweaked to address concerns of expense and to align with your 10x10 grid example).

I'll stop flogging this now, promise :-)

Basically, you are understanding what I was pitching. The only difference being that the darkness tiles also inset in a little tray, just like the room tiles.

I understand your idea now. I guess I didn't see that you had mentioned plastic posts in the corners of the room tiles. It makes more sense now. Actually after seeing your diagram, I like it a lot more. Not sure how I would go about mounting those posts though, or where I'd go about getting them for that matter. I guess it wouldn't be too hard to punch holes in the corners of the room tiles, although the practicality of doing this without destroying or mangling the tiles might be tricky. Mounting all of those posts might be a tad time consuming as well, but it's a cool idea nonetheless. Thanks for the idea!

I was thinking of something along the lines of those beads you can get in craft shops for threading for kiddies necklaces and such. I think you could get cylindrical ones. Or perhaps get some plastic spacers from a DIY store and then just glue them on, eight per tile. But I guess the tray scheme of yours could use posts (wooden dowels with some kind of groove or inset to hold the tiles - again from a DIY store) instead of tray walls just as well as the magnetic scheme does, to reduce weight and cost.

You're welcome, and sorry I took so long to make myself clear!
