    Playing board games with your coop members or Township friends

    Playing a board game like Chess or Checkers with one of your coop members or a Township friend, wouldn't take be great?
    Creating a Game board in your town and using the hoppers community network and create a worldwide Chess community, do I hear you scream "Wow" !?!
    Just to make this merged thread a little bit easier to write it is good to know the first part is from the Soil Thread where this subject was discussed. The real Boardgame thread starts here with the Chess board.



    From this point the discussion on creating game boards.
    Have fun and don't hasitate to share your thoughts and experiences with us!

    I am now thinking of using the soil with the light grey brick work, I think it will have a good impact. I am just waiting for the right area to do it in .
    Maybe I am the only one who has this, but it looks like my eyes are deceiving me. The Sand also seems to have a honeycomb pattern!

    Downton, you mean this combination? Here too the pattern seems to be spreading over the Soil.
    Do you remember the Pictures Map of _DD_'s Zoo? And that I thought it was a chessboard or checkerboard?
    Great surface for that!

    Nice to see you enthusiastic about this experiment!

    Downton I love the chessboard pattern, would never have thought of that, but it looks really nice.
    Wow the sand and the grass is a perfect colour match to the greenhouse entrance, I wish all decs and buildings blended so well. Looks great . Thanks Ash, I saw the chessboard effect in a friends town also, and decided to experiment with different types of ground .

    I have a chessboard in my mini town. Though it'll probably be sold off next time there's a coin task in the regatta

    Thanks Ashdust I should confess that it certainly wasn't my idea - I stole it from a town I visited once, and theirs was much better than mine because they had "chess pieces" I don't have access to yet (and won't do for a long time). I don't know if I could have made it in my big town, but mini has stopped building everything till its barn is (much) bigger, so there is space, and to stop the plane from asking for stuff from the eight or so factories I could have built but didn't, I have to keep my coins below 15,000. Which means that every time I do a heli/mining/maybe HoL task in the regatta I have to spend a load of coins before the next plane goes out

    Looking real cool JJay!

    Just curious... :are there no Chess players in your coop that you can play this as a minigame with?
    I the chatb"Turtle to D4, Lion to F3...."
    Then I guess you think twice about selling it

    If it is, it‘s in the wrong place , you don’t have both bishops one white boards, but one on white and one on black.

    But, Ruud, A super idea, playing chess via chatboard - en heel goed idee!
