Saves the day once again.
OK, I may be slow but I realized that making a game board is a lot like making a book cover. So I used my fabulous bookbinding skills I learned at the SF center for the book to cover the board I was working on.
That was a great class taught by a woman named Victoria. She was super talented and and used to be a restoration binder for the library before opening her own binding business. She was the only instructor I've ever seen ask someone to never take another one of her classes because he annoyed everyone. He was very annoying.
I learned a great deal in that class including that if you work on computers too much you lose the ability to use your hands to make art.
