How about Sticky Tack? That way you won't ruin the board, at least not right away (Sticky Tack tends to discolor stuff over time), and you can disassemble everything for storage.

I agree use Sticky tack, blue tack, tackit whatever it is called in your country. OR what I would do is not glue them to the board at all. Just glue or pin the walls together, and make the outer walls so that it makes a frame around the board, so that the walls stay in place.

Were it me, I'd just remake the board entirely; you're going to nearly that much effort anyway, you might as well go the whole hog and not have to worry about damaging the out-of-print board!
