My 7 Wonders collection
« on: June 22, 2017, 01:09:41 PM »
Taking this away from the other thread here's my 7 Wonders collection so far. I've still got a number of boards to finish but it will run to somewhere between 80 - 90 in total with the matching selection cards. All of the official expansions and a nice box to store them in. I exaggerated the box is around twice the size of the big box :)

Hope you enjoy.

The decks are in the tuck boxes.... erm all six of them goodness knows how it would play with 20 plus people. One day I'll invite as many as I can around for an epic game followed by an epic of Carc. Yup that would be a day of gaming! :)

Having a proper look on my laptop this morning, the custom wonders look particularly well printed - what printer do you use?  Do you mount them up afterwards?  Or is that the mystery of Squiffy's Wonder..no one knows how he built it  :(y) :(y)

After I saw Collioure (was born right next)  I was like  :o, I need this expansion, didn't know it existed !

But then I saw all the others and I realised it was fan-made, but what a great job in general !

No mystery Decar,

I work in an office that has a big old Toshiba photocopier/printer/scanner which produces a good copy finish. I use A4 printer labels (usually Avery) which adhere very well. The boards are made from Artist thick brown card stock which matches the thickness of the original 7 Wonders boards and also the tile thickness of the Carc. tiles. All printing done during my lunch breaks so it took some time. We have a couple of very good guillotines in the office which have followed me home once or twice of an evening for some chopping duties. Final trimming is with a knife that takes a Stanley blade along the edge of a metal ruler.

I am going to order a few sheets of blank Carc tiles to use for my next batch of expansions.

That explains it!  It does seems to have a particularly good finish.

I've printed on labels to make Carcassonne tiles and definitely far easier than messing with glue.
I've just got something to make the process a little easier, which I hope to be testing this weekend though!

I'm after a good guillotine, the one I have is a little hit and miss -- sharp but hard to line up!
