Block Games: Applying Stickers
« on: March 10, 2018, 03:08:20 PM »
mirth might faint at the news, but I just took the shrinkwrap off of Fields of Despair. Now I want to apply the stickers to the blocks. Does anyone have any tips for doing this? Should I spray the blocks with something like Krylon's Clear Matte Finish when I'm done to protect them?

In other news I sadly confirmed that the game board will not fit on my small gaming table.  :(

Can you get a sheet of plywood or some other material with more surface area than the table to lay over it when you want to try out bigger games? When not needed you could put the sheet out in the garage or slide it behind a bookcase or something.

Oh, it will fit on TOP of the game table. Just not inside. Here's my current setup. I can't leave a game set up on the top, only inside. Otherwise...the cats. And wife.

You could. Personally, I wouldn't bother.

just don't clip the corners on the blocks
