    Keywords: Equipment

Made a 9x9 goban and mini shogiban on reverse side by use a Walnut Hollowę product called Basswood Country Rounds« large size. I used a grid print out from a spreadsheet program to place alignment dots with a pencil. Then lines with a permanent marker, a Sharpie«, and ruler to make grid lines, and cooridinates. Hoshi points were made by using the hole in binder paper and pencil to outline a circle, then used the permanent marke over that. Next, sealed it with polyurethane spray in three coats. The shogi pieces are from [ext] Yellow Mountain Imports.

[ext] For the Grand Chess board, I made reversi pieces for 10x10 reversi by painting then gluing two wooden disks together, can also use the pieces to play 11x11 go, and international checkers.

Out of corner molding, I made Stratego ® like pieces that I can put a label of the piece value on. That way it can be changed if a particular wood piece stain or grain pattern becomes associated with what the piece is. The natural color pieces are movable terrain barriers.

I also can add shogi or chess labels to the pieces to make for a Stratego® variant of chess or shogi, even Grand chess.
