I often use Avalon Hill’s “Advanced Squad Leader” game boards, either for direct gaming or as a template for a hexagon based table-top wargame layout. i never did get my head around the original game but I have quite a collection of the boards gleaned from various sources. (All donations gratefully received.)
My gaming table is a former desk, but is located in the corner of the room, against two walls, so when playing a solo game I am always looking from the same viewpoint. But I have found a solution to my problem.
I found in the Shedquarters the other day a good strong notice board that used to grace my wife’s side of our home office.
As luck would have it, two Squad Leader boards fit exactly onto this notice board.
Also lurking in the Shedquarters is a pack of self-adhesive felt in various shapes. A bit of cutting and sticking and- hey presto! –
I now have a gaming board that can easily be rotated on the wooden table, allowing me to see the game from either side.
So now my problem is what to do with the 39cm diameter “Lazy Susan” turntable that is arriving later this week?
