I am finding I enjoy making a homemade version (the process of making it), nearly as much as playing the games.

I think it's a secondary reason I love abstarct Strategy games. You can make your own in many cases.

This list is just a catalogue of the ones I have done, which I have uploaded pics for.

Comments are welcome.

As are suggestions of how I might have done them better. Helps to improve for future efforts.

Suggestions of other games do do, and hints how are welcome as well.

Printed board and stones. Another game not exciting enough to invest in expensive wooden board, but playable on occassion this way

Simply downloaded art file from here, pasted on bristol board and foam then pasted to a heavy washer which helps hold the hive in shape more than just on cardboard

The board is printed an decopaged onto cork back of a placemate. I used extra chess pawns from little $1 set for pieces, with cheap plastic disks as markers. I did make serts in four colours.

The board is printed an decopaged onto cork back of a placemate. The pieces are thread spools. I bought 25 for $1 at a liquidation store. Cut the thread off and tossed it. The numbers are glues on.

This is a great diceless rcae game

My best project to-date

Using the backgammon stones was a great idea if I say so myself. Can buy sets at Salvation Army Thrift Store for a buck, or two. The board is from BGG mounted on a thick yardsale find for $50

This game is big time pricey to buy.

So I wood burned the board (actually on back of my Arimaa board see previous addition here). Wasn't too careful in the turning, I wanted crude/old look.

The pieces are nice solid little chess pawns that come from $1 sets at Doallar Store.
