I'm making the PnP version - Ilya77

Bu the only versions I've found of the board, are all on one page. Surely it can't fit on just one A4?

tuskel,
sincerely

I used PosteRazor to spread the map image across four pages. Worked fine for me.

I used Gimp to split it over 6 letter size sheets and save the final product as a PDF. PosteRazor would work fine as well, but I changed a few details (like fixing the round order icons) to match the always outward orientation.

The Avalon Hill original board is 405 mm wide by 414 mm high, or roughly 16" x 16". There is about 6-7 mm of "white space" at the top and bottom, and 1-2 mm of "white space" on both sides.

The planet on the board is a circle of radius 182 mm, without the black boarder. With boarder, r = 184 mm.

Go bigger. The tiny original board was the worst thing about the game.

Where did you get the image from? I am struggling to find it.

The really nice boards which are linked in Tragictheblathering's post in files are really awesome! (Kudos to the makers) but what would be a good size to print the game board to? Those awesome images are almost 50x50 inches (unless my maths is screwed, which is a strong possibility)
Can anyone give me an idea of what a good size should be to print this as a board? I'm thinking of 25 inches by 25 inches
What do people think?
Thanks

Original 16x16 board isn't WAY too small, just a little bit. 20x20 would be fine. 25x25 would only be necessary if comfortable on your table. It's important to keep in mind that on most of the board nothing is happening most of the time, so making people reach way across it for their troops every turn could get tiring.

The original board does have the advantage of playing 6 people on a 24" square table.
Plan the size of your board to your table, leaving 4-6 inches on each side for player areas, and you should be ok.
