I make a $10 product (the Noteboard) that is apparently really useful for board/tabletop games, even though I don’t know much about them. I’d like to add a hexagonal grid to it… Could you tell me if this design would work so I can push it to production?(r/boardgames)
You’d probably get a better response from this over at /r/rpg Your product is useful for that type of gaming, with miniatures and stuff like that, while this subreddit is generally for modern boardgames, and games that are a complete product, which generally won’t need this.
That said, for some useful crituqes, I think your updated design would be hard to use. With all the various different lines, it would be hard to keep track of exactly where the hexes are. You don’t really need multiple sizes, because most miniatures are all around the same size, with different sizes for different creatures, but those generally take up multiple squares. I don’t know exactly the size, but I think they are around 1″ diameter at their base for a standard size. Personally I’d like to see something that just has a square grid on one side and a hex grid on the other side. I have a mat like this one, and I think you’ll find that is what most people are using. So if you want to get RPG business, you’re competing against them. They are clear and large, but personally I can say that the map is really big, and its a real pain to transport and store. So you’re product is nice that it folds up and you can store it where ever. If it was as usable as the mat I linked too, I would definitely consider buying one.
