Board but with symbols

Recommended Posts

Since I will be printing my own board some time soon, I thought why not tinker with it ;)

The idea is to replace the text of all "draw card" spaces with symbols to make them easier to use (mostly for less experienced players, but even I will have easier time reading the board).

I really like this idea. A while back, I was tinkering with an idea on how to remove / reduce the repetitive draw card text myself, but I never took the time to really research or implement it the way that you have. I'm impressed! Looks great!

I have spoken multiple times, requesting for a Deluxe Edition Talisman, now not probable since FFG is now not making the game, using a smaller board similar in size to 2nd edition. The idea was to make the common size of the spaces the size of a card. The problem was text would be very small. The idea of using iconography is a great idea.

But using smart icons is usually missed. Since it is for yourself, which icons means what won't be an issue.

Hi.

First of all, this is a brilliant idea, very well done.

But i’m afraid this method can’t work on the some of the expansions spaces.

I remember that in the Highlands, for example, some spaces guide you to draw a card even if there is already a card in that space.

In the city expansion as i recall, most street spaces guide you to draw one card, with a maximum of 3 cards which can be on the same space.

i’m aftaid you will need text for that kind of spaces? Or maybe another smart symbol?

That is amazing.  I must know what you printed that on and how I can get one.  It appears to be tougher than simple paper?

Awesomesauce, i had to do this with mine due to the fact that i was playing with my four year old. The boards weren't meant for that kinda strain and i want to give it to her kids. It was not easy to get it all lined and scaned up properly.

Can i print that off the image you posted or would it look like garbage? Can you alter dimensions easily? I built a 6×4 gaming table so we can always have game set up. The one i did is about 33"x41". It fits nicely for a three man game but anymore really needs side tables.

I wasn't the one printing it, sorry I have no idea what this material is (it's not paper, thicker and has "hairs" coming out on edges)

What I posted here isn't printable. The original is much much bigger.

I've cut 6 spaces from the board to make it smaller on the longer side. My hope is to do this to all corner boards to have smaller overall board, because I can't fit that monster on any table!

Anyway:
