Okay, so I got six cork tiles today. First: shop around when looking for packets of 12" x 12" (30.4cm x 30.4cm) cork tiles - because I ordered some a while back on ebay, for about $40, then today I found a six-pack for $13 at bunnings hardware store. I need more than six, so I can do the expansions as well, and things like lava, water, ice, pits, etc, as well, but the six I grabbed at Bunnings today will let me do the tile segments for the original game, using the PDF 4-page templates I made downloadable in a previous post.
So, here's six cork tiles:
I cut out the four pages for the first tile's template. I printed the templates in greyscale to save ink, and because I already know what bits are what:
I also noticed that the cork tiles are not the 'exact' same size, so the templates fit neatly on some, but there was extra cork around the edges on others, so some trimming will be required later, to make sure the squares are all the same size.
Then I'll have to just wait until early or mid February, when my pre-cast plaster pieces should arrive in the mail.
