We've been pretty big fans of the game Settlers of Catan since we were introduced to it during what has since been dubbed "Catansgiving" over the thanksgiving holiday a couple years back. Sometime ago I stumbled across this post on Reddit where somebody built a 3D board, and I've been obsessing about it for a while. So I've finally broken down and started it.
For reference, this is what the basic, 4 player game board looks like. Also, woman-childs first victory.
Fortunately, the last couple weeks at work have been real slow, so I've had a lot of free time to get started.
Hexes are about 3.5" across, so I was able to fish out some scrap aluminum from the can in the sheet metal shop. Cutting, sanding, cleaning and polishing.
