Moonbase Escape is an example of the kind of game you can make with Board Games To Create And Play. It's a smaller version of one of the boards from the book, paired with a new rule we've invented about opening and closing doors.
All you need to play this one is:
- A pawn for each player
- A six-sided die
- Five little tokens (eg. coins or buttons) for the doors
- Some pens or pencils
Download the PDF and print the board and rules at A4 size to get playing. All you need to do to get started is to add a few more squares and doodles, to depict the kinds of things you think might be happening on a moonbase that's in trouble. When you're happy with your additions, put the pawns and tokens on it and it's ready to play.
The full book of Board Games to Create and Play gives you a pad of larger tear-out boards, a host of different rules to mix and match with them, a structure for adding and modifying game rules, some cut-out cards and tokens, a section of game suggestions and a random theme generator.
