Follow the step-by-step instructions to create one board. You can play the game with one board, or make two boards and play against one another.

Once assembled, sand any rough spots. Then prime the boards and paint them your desired colors or designs.

“Part of the design of these is that they collapse,” said Edwards. “They have a handle on them so you can carry them with you.”
