Hello all, this is my first post in awhile.

I have created a game, but the game board is 28 inches by 28 inches. I have already reduced the size considerably - it was even larger. I am looking for ways to produce this game. I could possibly shrink it to 24 inches by 24 inches, but I'd rather not.

Are there any print on demand companies who can make a board like this?

Thanks for any help!

Have you thought about splitting up your game board into more manageable sizes? Splitting it into halves or even thirds could make it more easily printable, as well as making it fit more easily into a box.

Depending on what the game is about, you could use this approach and also create a way to vary the board (two-sided boards that can fit together in different orientations).

Take a look at some of the folding board sizes of larger games and try to get it into one of those formats. Check War of the Ring and Railroad Tycoon for starters.

Yes, I will probably have to have the board printed in pieces. I was thinking that a quad fold one piece board would look more professional, though. Thanks for your responses everyone!
