Hi folks,

so I got the designer's permission to share the files with people who want to craft their own game.

It's definitely one of my upcoming projects.

Just drop me a PM and I'll send you the link.

Cheers.

I am having trouble making sense of the PnP directions. They describe a complicated scheme for connecting the panels; from skimming through the other components, I haven't been able to figure out how or when the board folds during play, or anything else about the purpose of the complicated paste-up.

Any enlightenment would be welcome. My habit with PnPs is to craft first, and learn to play once the components are in front of me, but it seems like in this case I'll need to understand the mechanics in order to craft the board correctly.

(I'm also okay with a less-than-professional board result; if there are several disconnected board pieces which I just need to keep from drifting apart during play, for example.)

My own pnp is yet to be made.
Haven't decided yet how to do it.

Perhaps Nate himself is kind enough to post a brief explanation here

As I understand things, the boards are gradually unfolding. You can't "look around the corner" before you get there.

My plan is to shrink the panels to A4 (according to Nate, the 3d effect should still work fine), double-print them on 300g, laminate them and tape them together from both sides.

I've just stared at the instructions, rules and panels until my eyes crossed, and I finally figured out that there's supposed to be a gap between C(gap)EF and also H(gap)IJ. The gap is there so that when F and J are folded inward, flat against their other halves E and I, the folded F/E panel now showing D on top, and the J/I panel now showing 5 on top, can be again folded inwards. Ok, I'm not making it simpler:(

I can't see the G on panel G, but it's super-dark, doesn't have another letter, and is one of the two with a big red 5 on it.

The image files:

Panels E-F go on the front of D-A,
Panels I-J go on the front of G-B,

Panels C and H have nothing on the back, represented here as X.

Fold key: left(<), right(>), up(^), and down(v)

' : sharp transition within continuous image
| : a gap that's as wide as the thickness of the board

Panels front of board:

C|E F
-----
H|I J




Panels back of board:

D'A|X
-----
G'B|X





To fold the board, start with the board front facing up on the table:

C|E F
-----
H|I J




Then you have to be able to fold panels F and J upwards:

C|E<F
-----
H|I<J


Which means that the E-F and I-J side should be attached at the front, and split on the back (between D-A and G-B) so the panels can fold upward.

After the fold:

C|D
---
H|G


Now, D and G are folded upwards towards C and H, over the gap:

C<D
---
H<G


Which means that the 'paper strip' should be on the back of the board. I think that it might be worthwhile to use a strip of cloth for this. Going to get opened and closed a lot.

Now we've created the starting board:

A
-
B




If you folded them downwards now, the board would be ready for the box, with panel A on one side, and panel B on the other. So that means that the split is on the front between panels C and H, and the panels are attached at the back, between the two blank X panels.

When you play the game:

A
-
B




C>D
-
B




C|E>F
-
B




C|E F
---
H>G




C|E F
-----
H|I>J




Your trip: A,B,C,D,C,E,F,G,H,I,J

Thank you very much for this!

My pnp version has to wait a bit, though. Soon you'll know why

After figuring out how to make the board, I decided that I like it better in three pieces:) Better that than waiting for my paper strip to rip.

How hard is it really to make a pnp game?

Since I did in fact order this, any pnp version I made would be temporary.

Just print out from a computer on regular paper and cut & paste where necessary? Maybe enlarge some pieces on a copy machine if needed?

I wouldn't recommend crafting TME if you've ordered it. It won't be cheap to print all the cards and boards....and it's rather tricky to assemble the boards as it seems.
However, I'll craft my additional, own copy eventually
