Amongst that list was something I only realised I wanted after playing in the Atomic Robo. Mike was using what is called a WipeBook - essentially it's a dry-erasable pad.
So after asking Mike where he got it from I looked for it at Gen Con but it wasn't available at any of the booths. When looking into getting one for myself I came across the usual challenge of buying something overseas - shipping...
So at first I decided "Oh well." and forgot all about it but since then I got to thinking - "Surely I could make one myself?"
So I have.
- 1 pack of A4 160gsm card.
- 1 set of Staedtler whiteboard dry wipe pens.
- 1 pack of laminating pouches (well I already had this and the laminator).
- 1 binder to put them in.
To mix it up a bit I used some of the PDF templates from Incompetech to create Hex, Square and Lined sheets and went about printing and laminating the card.
Final result -
I've still to use it properly but I can see me using it instead of squared paper and blank paper to draw maps (not to scale!) and other short term items in games.
I also hope to use it for brain dump stuff that can be wiped in future once they've been blogged or otherwise.
