To create something, the first thing presented is an idea. Create a game also requires an initial idea that will later develop into a game. Ideas are needed to make the rules of the game, design, tools, and fun value in the game. Because if you don't have one of these three basic things, what you make doesn't seem to be called a game. After having an idea, of course, you also already have a view of the rules and game design. The next step is to execute the idea.
In creating the design of the game, you need to make it in detail. The details you have will be the pieces that are used when playing. If you are making board game pieces of paper then all you need to prepare is the board. Because the board will be the main tool when playing. A board game can not be done without the board. Every piece in a board game is made with paper material just like the ideas you make. You can start preparing lots of paper. Don't forget the supporting equipment to make it like scissors to cut paper. After done with paper, you can prepare other ingredients.
Pieces in the game can be made with many objects. When you make a homemade board game, you can respond to objects around you to become part of the board game. Such as old photo albums, used magazines, and newspapers as decorations or part of the board. That way, the board that you make will spend low-cost on production costs. The concept of game pieces will produce a board game that can compete with famous commercial board games.
When you make a game from pieces of paper, you have two choices. You make a new game with your idea or re-create an existing game by replacing it with paper material. To re-create, you don't need to go through the idea design stage because you already have a reference as an example game. There are many board games in the world that can be re-created using paper such as Paper Football, Trash Basketball, and Paper Airplane. These three games are quite well-known among children all over the world. All of them are board games that can be made with pieces of paper and can be made anywhere as long as you have paper.
