Print and Play the Royal Game of Ur
Print and plays are a great way to try out games before investing money on a nice set. In some cases, especially with independent game designers, it’s the only way to play their games. They are also great for classroom use or group use. If anything, it’s fun and cheap entertainment. I recently explored creating one for the Royal Game of Ur using pocket change for pieces and casting tokens. It was a fun experiment and for those interested, I was able to create the entire PDF (diagrams and all) using Google Docs.
Feel free to download the PDF, grab a pocket full of change and some friends to re-live those college budget nights. :) Happy Gaming!
