Today’s Functional Print: Board Game Piece Bases

In today’s “do you think this is some sort of game?” news, I’ve designed and printed some boardgame piece bases.

These were printed specifically for my son’s “Thomas and Friends Tracks and Trestles” game, which was missing two of its bases, but the design is customizable to fit almost any size gamepiece.

The OpenSCAD script and STL file are available on GitHub, and you can customize your own gamepiece base on Thingiverse.

Games, Recommendations, Warfish

I will crush you and your armies.

Recommendation of the day: Warfish. It’s a basic online Risk game, and it’s tons of fun. You can get an idea of what the gameplay is like by watching this timelapse of a game. Games can last hours/days/weeks, and you can have it e-mail you when it’s your turn. It’s the perfect 3-minute break from whatever else you were doing. Signup is invitation only, so if you want in, leave a comment or e-mail me for an invite.

Oh, and by the way, I’d like to thank Tom for getting me addicted to this game when I was supposed to be working. Thanks Tom!
