    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
    crunchy nuke cornflakes

    Cut out a panel from it

    I used spray mount, as it’s quick

    Pro-tip: stick them to the colourful side of the cereal box and they’ll have nice plain backs ;P

    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!

    Who needs a nodge? The arrow work fine. The large “slide ” template is unwieldy when the short straight is just as effective.

    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.
