    We are looking to include a tile placement component in our game.

    If you know the game Patchwork or Carcassone then you may know the type of thing we are looking for.

    The tiles would be need to be around 50mm by 75mm, with a thickness of 3.5mm. This is to prevent them sliding around and allow the players to build a series of connecting tiles on game board.

    Is this something that could be added to The Game Maker? or is there a component that I could use that is on here already?

    Many Thanks in advance,

    Chris

    Hi Chris

    That is something we can look at doing. Exactly what sizes would you need and what sort of quantities?

    We're still prototyping but the most likely format is a rectangular tile, 44mm x 78mm x 3.5mm.

    Approx. 70-80 tiles per game box, with 15 variations of tile design.

    Initial run of 7 game boxes.


    Possibly, the thickness could be reduced down to 1.5mm depending on the material.

    Thoughts?

    Hello Ivory,

    The final size is a rectangular tile, 50mm x 100mm. The thickness can be 1.5mm as long as the material is rigid.

    My question is, can you produce this using the same material as a chit?

    Many thanks,

    Chris

    50mm by 50mm would be great! I'm getting the art this week and have been tearing my hair out trying to find an easy way to make tiles!
