I love most kind of games and I’m addicted to any kind of board game. I started playing board games since I was 3 years old. I play with my friends, siblings, my parents, and my husband. I’m competitive in a good way ( I guess ) and it helped me to be creative. I learned Jakaroo about a year ago and It’s one of the best games I’ve ever played. I tried to buy it but I couldn’t find it here in the US. I decided to make one and give it to my family because I know how much they enjoy this game.
Here are the CAD designs I made for the Board Game using SoildWorks.
I decided to go with acrylic instead of wood because it’s lighter and it will take less time in the laser cutter.
It took the laser cutter approximately 5 minutes for the top platform and two minutes for the bottom one.
I decided to go with the blue to get the sky/space color.
For the aesthetic of my design, I decided to use the scrap I have left to do a crescent as my family name. I also did the Saudi Arabia emblem that represents the vitality, growth, and justice. I used the laser cutter again to be able to use these to paint them on the back of the board game.
I enjoyed doing this board game and I won’t give it up. As for future updates, I will round the edges and I will add to the aesthetic. I have some leftover material that I’m going to use in my main project later in the semester.
