Hey all,

I posted some photos of the Pathfinder board my wife and I made to make 6 player games a little easier.

Its a simple 22 inch round cake board mounted on a 16 inch lazy susan from bed, bath and beyond.

Small acrylic card holders work great to stand up the locations. They work with just the card, or sleeved cards.

My wife painted all the Rise of the Runelord Runes around the board.

Very portable, so we can bring it to game meetups.

Total cost, around $30.00, but we had the paints and glue already.

If anyone wants more information on how to make one, just give me a shout. It only took a few days.

James

Would it be possible to just write it up here, with links to where you got the supplies? Could prove useful to future players looking for this exact solution down the road.

Can you please link to something you call "simple 22 inch round cake sheet". All I am picturing (and finding when I search) are baking pans, but I am sure that is not what you are using.

Thanks

Sorry, I should have done this to begin with but I was in a hurry with my first post

Here is a list of everything I used to make the board.

1 16 inch Lazy Susan (link below)
1 22 inch Masonite Cake Board (link below)
1 can Gold Spray paint
1 jar Black Acrylic Paint
1 can Gloss Acrylic Sealer Paint
2 Lamination Sheets
1 tube Gorilla Glue Epoxy
1 8X10 Printout of the Pathfinder World Map
1 4X6 Picture of the Pathfinder Iconic Characters
4 felt rounds for bottom of lazy susan to keep it from sliding.

Process –
Spray painted the entire board Gold
Had my wife sketch the runes out around the board, then paint them.
Used a lighter to burn the edges of the Map
Laminated the map and photo, then glued it to the board
Sealed the entire board with Gloss Acrylic Sealer
Glued the board to the lazy susan
Put felt tabs on the bottom.

Unfortunately, I got the card holders from a friend. I tried finding something similar online but can't find them. I am thinking of placing an order for more, but they only come in bunches of 100. If a bunch of people want some I can ask my friend to place an order. I will work on getting more information on them.

Awesome post. The custom card holders are prolly the most important part of that build though.

I got the info for the card holders, but only businesses can order directly. Looks like you need to order large amounts at a time. I will keep digging.

That's really cool. Very simple, and incredibly useful.

I'm not sure I have the skills to make it as nice and fancy, but I'll definitely attempt to make something.

Thanks. It has worked out well. I just built another one for a good friend. It is amazing how this game has been so well received. A sign of a good company. I am really looking forward to the Pirates version. I am already starting to think of new themes for a board, may with water and ships at each location, I will probably wait until it releases so I can figure out some the exact theme to use.
