Topic: Making the Gaslands Templates

Gaslands needs some templates to play, and there’s an A4 sheet of them at the back of the playtest rules. To make your templates, easiest option is to print them out and stick them to some cereal-box cardboard, then cut them out with scissors or a craft knife.
Got me an empty cereal box
Cut out a panel from it
I used spray mount, as it’s quick
Snip, snip, slice, slice, and…

Pro-tip: stick them to the colourful side of the cereal box and they’ll have nice plain backs ;PMarch 21, 2016 at 4:54 pm #1022
I make my first templates just by printing onto regular plain card 🙂 Works a treat, and doesn’t break the bank if you have some lying around from work!December 17, 2016 at 2:26 pm #2135

Who needs a nodge? The arrow work fine. The large “slide ” template is unwieldy when the short straight is just as effective.February 13, 2017 at 9:10 pm #2235
The notch is just intended to avoid arguments about exactly what angle the slide template should be pointed out at.
The wider slide template better describes that the vehicle is travelling “sideways” and is therefore more likely to collide with things. Before the template was expanded, we had situations where vehicles “squeezed” through gaps it made no sense for them to be able to get through.
Both changes are to help the game be more self explanatory to new players.February 15, 2017 at 2:27 pm #2260
No worries mike 😉 ill be sure to download and try the new templatesMarch 6, 2018 at 7:10 pm #3596
I think I’ll do this before I try to cut the clipboards.March 15, 2018 at 3:18 pm #3786
Just had a heavy headache with the templates and trying to print them on my 3D printer (Hayland templates)
If you want to double check the sizes print the pdf at original size and not to fit to the page or the templates will be smaller than the originals!
Thanks for the game Mike! 🙂
