The New Board is here!

Since we began, we have been producing all our game boards by hand.  For the past several iterations, this has required multiple steps:

  • Creating the board image file in GIMP.
  • Chopping the sizable (1GB+) file into many smaller ones (if you haven’t noticed, there’s a LOT of detail in the artwork) for print processing.
  • Printing those files as a stack of board sections at the local print shop. (I think we got it down to 16 pieces on the last run)
  • Lining up and gluing all those sections onto a cardboard backing (4’x3′ project/presentation board)

Tiresome and not prone to producing a final outcome that does justice to the art or effort involved.  Also, pricey.

What’s better?  Finding a printer who will do it for us, from the original (large!) file, for a price that’s close enough to local printing to make it a good deal. Yay!

So now we have (ta-daah!) the new board for Grisleigh End: Estate of Confusion.  Look for it at demos in your area.  Or (better) invite us to come demo where you and a bunch of friend will be!
