Does anyone have a tried and true method for creating game boards? I'm hoping for something with better results than the "glue the computer printout onto the old cardboard box" method but cheeper than the "have a professional do it for you" method.

try the above link, a little more involved than glue and cardboard but not tons. Also, a search for board making or manufacture, or something like that will help, there have been really good threads on the site for that before. Good luck!

Is your board a single piece (like a Go board) or is it a bi-fold or quad-fold board? What are you trying to build?

Shrike's idea is really good. But if you want to avoid the glue, why not go to Kinkos (or a place like them) and have them print your design onto heavy cardstock or foam board? Then you can proceed on to using man's best friend, duct tape.

I would agree it will cost you about $20 for a 20"x20" print out at a local OfficeMax (at least the last time I priced out the printing costs). If nothing else you can get a higher quality printout and *glue* (you should really use a spray adhesive not glue) a single sheet printout to your game board.
