Print and Play!
Here's a way to try out Pivit for free. This is a 7-page pdf that you can print at home and turn into a playable game with some tape and scissors. You can download the file here:
This is the second-best way to see what Pivit is really like. The best is to play with three-dimensional pieces, of course. If you print and play Pivit with a few friends, they might enjoy the game and help it become a reality.
When building the board, keep in mind that you want 8 squares to each side, and that the color of corners alternate. The pieces of paper used to make the board are not identical, since there is one sheet per corner. When cutting out the pieces, you may fold the sheet in half first to cut two pieces at once. If you're feeling brave, you may even fold it in half again so that you're cutting out four pieces at a time. It's important that these folds are precise so that the cuts will line up with all the pieces.
The back of the pieces looks a bit different from our final design to accommodate double-sided printing achieved by putting a printed sheet back in your printer. This works, but the front and back might not line up exactly, so the backs (the master side) of pieces have been modified to let the printer be imprecise in how the front and back sides match up.
Specific instructions on using your printed sheets are included on the first page of the pdf itself.
