Magnets on the Game Board
There has been some questions and comments lately about the magnetic game board. To answer one persons question: yes, over the years I have pondered embedding the magnets into the game board to hold the fuel stations in place, and the game board is made with a very thick card stock which could accommodate embedding. However, the graphics on the game board are amazing, and the the playing surface is additionally coated with a gloss finish to help protect from drink spills, etc. The gloss coating makes the graphics even more stunning! I didn't want to impair the beauty of the game board in any way, which would happen with embedding. I concluded that thin magnets glued onto the board was the most ideal solution to accomplish holding the Fuel Stations in place while preserving the graphics. The magnets I am using are less than 1/32" thick and they are black, which blends into the deep space graphics. I think you guys will really like the appearance and function of the game board with magnets!
