    Homemade Dashboard

    So I’ve been running my own home campaign for a little over a month now, and playing with the equipment deck for the last three weeks. And I’ve noticed that although my players really love the equipment cards, they also tend to end up lost on the gaming table amidst bags of doritos and papers. So I took a little inspiration from board games like Zombicide and used a little cardboard, spray paint, and spare bits from my pack build to make a containment unit styled character card dashboard!

    And of course I had to slap a little caution striping on there somewhere. 😉

    This is awesome, @chris! Think we could get a shot of it in action?

    Thanks Doug! I’ll be sure to take some action shots tonight during the weekly sessions. If this cardboard prototype works well I already have some ideas on how to build a cleaner, more robust versions for my players.

    First roll of the night

    As per your request Doug, I made sure to get at least a couple of action shots. The dashboard worked admirably, and as you can see, I quickly figured out it also doubles as a nice clean rolling space. With how minimal the stats are on the character card it actually works quite well, you just look down at yous dashboard and drop the dice.

    Incidentally, I happened to have the best Moves out of the group, and paid a small bit of homage to Briggs by making a point to drive like a maniac. What happens when you try to pull a sweet ass e-brake stop, while lighting a cigarette, and pulling down your ecto goggles and roll a ghost? Apparently light your crotch on fire.

    Thanks guys! I’m pretty happy with the prototype, like I mentioned I have a few ideas in mind already to build a more robust, less cardboard version. I’ll be sure to share more pics when I get something put together!

    Just realized that I hadn’t responded yet! These look great! Also, nice touch with the pink slime dice!
