Game Of Ur Round 2: bag and board are one!
While sewing the bag for the Game of Ur, it dawned on me that a more portable version of the game could be created if the board and the bag were a single component. Carrying the game from place to place would be so much easier if the entire package could be rolled up and stuffed in a pocket.
So off I set to create yet another Game of Ur… but this time with portability in mind.
layout the sewing pattern
stitch with black yarn
the black outline is complete
highlight the special squares
making game pieces and die
This is 'cabernet' stain; it is my 'go to' stain when I need to add some contrast to a pale wood project.
stain some pips on the die
Only 4 die are needed, but I opted to make 5 die and then discard the least square of the bunch. mmmm cabernet pips
hold it all together
This button of maple is stitched to the bottom of the board. After rolling up the board, the extra piece of yarn is wrapped around the board and then wound around the button to hold the entire thing shut.
That's a wrap!
All in all, the game rolls up small enough to fit into a pocket… which makes it easy to carry the Royal Game of Ur with me whereever I may go!
