I started making it few months ago! Not that I feel crazy about this game (I would rather card game) but I thought: Why not? I rather felt it like a challenge, whether I was able to materialize it or not.

I used no molds of cast plaster or other such element at its making. Each piece was made one by one and no hex resembles another.

I made more than the needed pieces of the basic game so that I can have its expansions, e.g. the rivers resembling the Amazon with its wild vegetation and the large rocks. Or the many hexagons with the dark blue (full of iodine) sea the waves of which break wildly on the sand (leaving wakes).

Some of the pictures have been shot closely so some imperfections might be discerned but they are scarcely seen by "naked" eye!

Nevertheless I think I will not keep it for myself. As I said before I perceived it as a structural challenge rather than as a game. Since I have constructed it I think I have accomplished my target. So it is for sale. I will soon put an ad here at the site.

Wow. Just wow. Wish I was rich… right now I don't have a penny.

But five deserts? That seems harsh.

Aww, those sheep are too cute :laugh:

Now you'll have to make your own bits, because those nondescript blocks of wood just won't look right with all that detail!

And what about the number chits? Do they just rest on top?

Wow, that is really gorgeous!!! Such detail and creativity! I imagine that it was a lot of fun to work on. So, how about writing a tutorial for us "crafty" people so we could give it a go. I've never worked with things like this, but it looks like it would be a lot of fun! So, what did you do with it? Give as a gift, keep it, or sell it? I don't think that I would be able to part with it after so many hours going into it.

Absolutely gorgeous work! Any chance of sharing with us what materials/techniques you used? I would really love to try my hand at making a custom set but I don't know where to begin and with what materials.
