Magnetic Double Status Board Case
« on: February 14, 2014, 04:21:27 PM »
Hey Mages and Mageresses!

Inspired by other people's solutions to the "status cube problem", I also wanted to have a magnetic one. Here is how I did it:

In a stationery shop I bought one of those metal cases with coloured pencils. Then I got rid of those pencils. Inside the case I placed two paper copies of the status board (the size needed slight adjustment) which stick to the case because of the magnets.
I wanted the case to be a bit more appealing visually, so I took the logo and a colour that more or less matched the case and had it printed on adhesive foil in a copy shop. Put it on the top side of the case and that was basically it. The nice thing about the case is that it holds two status boards for two players and you can put some markers inside. The whole thing was less than 10€, I think.

Hay! That's quite nice! Gives me some ideas, actually.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

Very cool!  ;D

For on the go- you could jam some dice and tokens in there! Love it.

It has been around since the dawn of time,
it follows your loved ones as well as mine,
takes the form of a mountain as well as a flower,
it cannot be outrun by the greatest of power.

Thanks for the kind feedback! I just tested the case yesterday and it worked absolutely fine. My opponent also liked the idea of having both status boards next to each other.
(I also won three out of three matches - maybe it's a talisman? ;) )
