Hey everyone, I just wanted to share this link to an article on how to create your own folding game board:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/531148/folding-board-tutorial-pictures

The 14-ply chipboard the OP recommends is only $0.66 per 22x28 sheet (when I bought 25 sheets). I also recommend the tape he suggests. I didn't use full size label sheets, though, I just printed 11x17 color sheets and used spray adhesive and it worked great (the Elmer's spray adhesive I got from Michael's didn't bleed through or warp the paper or chipboard at all).

Making my first one took me about 2.5 hours to make a 4-sided folding board, but after the forts it will probably take 1.5 hours.

Attached are pictures of how my prototype turned out. I highly recommend doing this for prototypes. I am sending prototypes to friends and playtesters, and will make one of these for each playtesting prototype.

Awesome tutorial! It never

Awesome tutorial! It never occurred to me to document the construction of prototypes, but I'm sure many will find this incredibly helpful!
