Help me! I have three old wooden game boards from this game set my dad got, and I have no idea what to do with them! They're basically 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" squares of wood with rounded corners. I was thinking a collage or painting, but I really want to do something creative and unique... any ideas?

buy a wood burning tool and go to town on them!  (practice first on a different piece of wood) use graphite paper to transfer a design onto them... then when you are done you could paint it - dilute your paint with water to get a more "stained" look..   it could be really sharp when you are done.

I would KILL to have something like that to work with as the background or base for an assemblage/altered art object.  You can drill small holes through them and wire on strange combinations of things, decoupage images onto the surface, etc...

ETA - maybe even saw one in half and hinge it so you'd have a flat surface and a vertical surface to work on.
