Before you begin, some advice…
SMASH MONSTER RAMPAGE!
The finished game will appeal to players of all ages, but making the game does require some fairly complicated cutting, scoring and gluing. (So a young person should get someone old to help them, tell them it‘s educational…).
I’ll be honest, making the game will take some time, but probably not as long as you might think.
Simply download and print out the pages onto 33 sheets of A4 white card - 240gsm is ideal. Print the rules pages (fileFOUR) onto paper.
Follow the supplied guides (fileTHREE) to assemble all the components.
I’d recommend a craft knife and ruler rather than scissors, quicker and neater.
Score folds before bending, a bradawl used at a very shallow angle is perfect every time.
Note also that you can score a ‘block’ of pieces (Fire Markers, Helicopter Units, Survivor Markers) in one stroke before cutting apart.
‘Pritt Stick’ is ideal for securing the tabs.

There are four different ways to make the special ‘Monster Die’. I’d recommend the ‘soft’ option, it’s tricky to make but rolls nicely....

You don’t need to print the rules onto card, use paper....

The indicated page should be printed twice.
The page of card ‘backs’ must be printed on the reverse of the other four.
CONTENT; Playing Board (25MB file)
The eight sections join together to form the Game board. You’ll need to stick these down onto thick card or hardboard to make a firm playing surface. I used ‘artist canvas board’ which worked well.
