So my boy left recently for deployment and I wanted to make him little board games for him to play with his buddies so he won't be so bored but after making 2 HP games (both from here) that I figured I switch it up a bit. Since Jack Skellington goes hand in hand with Halloween, I thought I'd make a Nightmare Before Christmas version of Candyland after seeing http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433337.0
I actually never seen the movie, so I had a really hard time coming up with what to put on the board, so I Googled everything.
This is the board I came up with
It's on a regular sized printer paper but it's a little heavy. I didn't have any black paper on hand so I just painted it black. The little location spaces, I drew and colored in with color pencils, then cut each one out and glued them onto the board. The little spaces is also drawn out on a separate paper and glued on.
The locations I put are, Oogie's Lair, Tree house, Spiral Hill with the grave at the bottom, Dr. Finkelstein's lab, the Town Hall, Fountain, and Jack's House which is the objective.
I couldn't find my poly clay, so I decided to try to make the pieces out of salt dough.
Anyways, first time making a board game of any kind. It is NOT easy! Thanks for looking guys.
