Create Your Own Board/Card Game Resources

Many people ask me for some good resources or supplies for creating their own instruction or learning oriented board game or card game. There are several resources you can use. Here is a partial list.

If you want to create your own prototype board game with some cards and a board, try the DIY: Do It Yourself kit. Also, if you want to use an existing game template, the other DIY kit has great pre-made templates you can use.

If you just want to create a game totally from scratch here are some supplies as well as a blank board game template and blank playing cards.

If you have some more resources or are done prototyping and want to produce your game, you can check out some resources that can help you actually make your own game.
