Method of Manufacture

Card Game Boards can be stiffened using Stripwood Technology techniques as shown.

  • Cut lengths of Stripwood to make two frames : each one equal to half the size of Game Board,
  • Apply card triangle Gussets to the joints down one side but replace them with a continuous card strip down the side to be hinged (this will provide support for the adhesive tape applied later),

  • On the other side of the frames, apply the card Game Board,
  • Bring the two halves together face-to-face and wrap around the hinged side with strong fabric Adhesive Tape to create a 'hinge',
  • Open up the folded Game Board and play the game!
