We play a lot of games in this house. One board game that is played way more than the others is Settlers of Catan. During out last play though, I really was motivated to finally make my own version of it. This is what I can up with. All pieces are multilayered wood with resin inlays. They are magnetized so I can hang this like art on the wall when it’s not in use. The cards are made from blank playing cards and Cricut cut Vinyl. The card holder is a modified file from a box generator for a tray layout – https://www.festi.info/boxes.py/TrayLayout?language=en .
The board took me over a month to complete and I am super happy with it!
