Re: Giant piecepacks
Good idea :)
What materials would you use to build it? For the coins box cardboard
might me ok, but the tiles would neet to be more resistant (You want
to be able to walk on the board for some games). Maybe the vinyl used
for street signs would be ok, but that may be too expensive... Or
wood... Or maybe that foamy plastic that comes in big squares and is
used to cover the floor and make it softer (for martial arts, or gym
classes). That could work!
