A mounted board is a normal board. An unmounted board will either be a sheet of thin cardboard or paper. The main games that use unmounted boards are wargames.

Does that answer your question?

The reason it's called 'mounted' is that the board image- printed paper, of some thickness- is mounted (glued) onto a much stiffer & stronger backing. (Eg- foam-core, picture mat-board, compressed-wood-fiber/clip-board material, etc.) Typically the paper is wrapped around the board on all sides, and glued to the backside too- so that no paper/board seams are exposed- where incomplete glue, or incidental fingers, could start to peel the paper away from the mounting.

A mounted board is normal, whereas a normal board is mounted.

Think "animal head" - mounted is on a board or wall - unmounted - it just lies there staring at you with accusing eyes.....

Reply from a complete idiot:

"Normal bored" - My wife playing games with me.

"Mounted bored" - My wife on a particularly romantic evening.


Oh, did you say "board"?
