Differences Between the Editions

The board design and layout is the same for the Third and Fourth Editions. The size of he hexes changed between the two editions.

Twilight Imperium: Third Edition

Designed to hold hex tiles that measure 3 13/16 inches (97mm) across the flats. The board breaks down into six pieces for easy transportation and storage. This board is compatible with Twilight Imperium (© Fantasy Flight Games).

Options

Optional Oil Finish

I offer a optional oil finish. I am currently using Watco Danish Oil.

I have seen pictures from customers of their boards painted black and it looks great. I do not offer painting services.

Birch color test with flash Birch color test with natural light

The top image is Birch Ply taken with a flash, the lower image is with natural lighting (in the sun). The tokens are across the joints between different pieces of wood. Each piece of wood has a different color oil on it. From left to right the oil colors are:

I also did some tests with the Oak wood I am using for the Limited Edition Numbered Collectors Accessory Hex Board Style 1 sets. Check out the color test with the Oak.

Optional Engraving

Engraving Sample on Oak Board Frame Engrave your name, company or saying on the outer frame of the board, subject to content review by Prawn Designs. It will be visible during play. The same thing will be engraved on all 6 pieces of the Hex Board. The space for the engraving is approximately 1/2" by 12". This will fit approximately 43 characters.

On the right is "PD-12003 Limited Edition Numbered Collectors Accessory Hex Board Style 1" showing and example of the engraving.


Hex Accessory Board Details

The boards and trays are made out of Baltic (Russian) Birch plywood. Baltic Birch is knot-free, but has "plugs". The boards are shipped assembled ready to play, in raw wood ready to be oiled or painted.

The boards are sturdy and heavy. The Hex Board Style 2 with the Expansion Accessory Board together weigh more than 8 pounds when packaged for shipping. Standard shipping is via United States Postal Service (USPS).

Please read the Laser Cutting and Engraving FAQ page for more details on laser cutting and side effects.
