So, shortly before giving my son all of his Legends, he told me, he said “Daddy…I’d REALLY like a Plants vs. Zombies game IN REAL LIFE! Maybe you could use your laser machine to make us a cool board game?” Now how could I say no to that!? So here’s the big project!
I attempted to combine the strategy and mystery of the old board game Stratego, with at least reasonably close-to-actual PvZ mechanics. Was going to make it for him for Christmas, but once I got started on it, I was too excited to play it myself, so it won’t be kept secret for that long. More photos below. I’m sure I missed some little bits of masking on the lid, this piece of draftboard was a pain to peel)
Thanks for stopping by, and until next creation, Happy Forging!
I did think about that and when I was looking for inspiration, I saw that they were already making various board games, including one almost just like this that’s a roll up mat with nice plastic pieces, plus a few other style board games. Also I can’t delete it now anyway, but I did at least remove the instructions, just in case. Thank you.
