Do the maps need to be square? What dimensions / aspect ratio do you need?

I would imagine that most boards are close to the "golden" a4 ratio...

I'm not worried about the ratios much, I've got square and long boards. Since I'm working with preexisting boards I can likely run into an issue of a little bit of space in one direction or another, but I was always planing on painting the edges and the back of the board.(spray paint)

I know this is an old thread but I want to go on the record to say that you have permission to make any of my maps into a board. (just let me know if you do)

Rb0, if you're still doing this project, my Eurasia map might be a good candidate for printing... It's a large map, with pretty standard gameplay, so it'd probably be easy to make a printable version out of it... let me know if you're interested.

If the map is too small for the board, you could cut the edges off and glue some strips from a fabric tablecloth on and the map on top.
You can also buy some cardboard and glue some fancy paper on the back and strips of fabric tablecloth in the middle so you can fold it together, then size dosent matter :)

When now (hopefully in a moment) Kingdom of Denmark is in beta and further on, you got my permission create a board game :D

LOL I hadn't checked on this in a while, thanks guys, if I do this, I will certainly let you know and give you credit. Again come the fall when the ARC tourny comes around I'll see about getting boards together for prizes.
