Custom version of the boardgame Eclipse: 2nd Dawn

Hi, this one is somewhat grand in scale. I made my own version of the boardgame Eclipse: 2nd Dawn (Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy | Board Game | BoardGameGeek) themed around the age of sail, focusing on natural materials like wood and glass. The game has around 1000 individual components, and of these, 617 were made with my Glowforge and hand painted/stained/finished. Most of these were small tokens of various kinds, but there’s also trays, boxes with sliding lids, a storage crate with embedded magnetic seals, a clockwork turn counter. But the centrepiece is the 54 hexagons with laser cut veneer designs. Each of those was a couple hours work. Overall cutting time in total was around 35 hours.

I’m not a game player, but this looks absolutely fantastic! Job well done, and I’m sure you’ll really enjoy it more since you made it yourself. Looks like a fascinating game - may be above my ability to play it!
