When play-testing with Tom, he had a foam board tray you could place all of the tiles on and then pass it around the table when buying your tiles. I find that much easier to work with than putting them on the board.
You will need 2 pieces of foam board or tag board, and some glue or double sided tape.
Print out the resource board.
Cut out both rectangles. The left one is the top of the resource board, the right image is for the bottom of the board, and is entirely unnecessary but it looks nice.
After cutting out the top graphic rectangle, carefully cut out the interior parchment colored rectangle (inner area) from the outer area.
Mount the outer "U" shaped area to your foam board and cut the board to match. Then tape or glue that down to a rectangular board. Finally tape down or glue the inner area to the top of the bottom board.
During game play you can place the tiles on the inner grid and then pass the resource board around. When holding the board up, the tiles will rest comfortably on the shelf of the resource board.
