Sounds like it worked out great! Yay!

Frackin' awesome, well done!

very cool.
especially interesting was the slight change in negotiations that the scale of the game brought out.

Can I attempt to post a pic of the game to boardgamegeek, or do you want to?

Go for it, though I'd prefer it if you posted the link to this lj entry instead of the flickr set.

Awesome! I'm glad your efforts weren't in vain.
(Frozen) (Thread)

That looks awesome! I saw Settlers in the event guide, but I've only ever played Cities & Knights.... Your photos make me regret my foolishness :-).

Er, hi! Here via Cellio.

Yay syndication! If you're in the SF bay area, we will have it set up next weekend at my house. And it will be free of playa dust.

is it a full size board?
(Frozen) (Thread)

Yes, full sized 4-player version. We didn't do the expansion pack. :-)

I am very interested making my own copy of giant settler and other giant game conversions. What is the best way to contact you for tips?

Wow! That's really cool! I wish I had seen this. Will you be taking it to any Decoms? I'm going to cross post this to my blog so share with other Burners!

It won't be going to the SF one next weekend. I'll be too busy taking all of my possessions, putting them in boxes, putting the boxes in a big truck, driving a while, and then reversing the whole process. But I will likely set it up in a friend's party sometime in the next couple of months.

Hi, I found this entry while looking at pictures on Flickr. I'm very impressed with the jumbo-sized version of the game you created. Nice work!
(Frozen) (Thread)

Matt, I stumbled across this from a different website and this is awesome. Great to see this audacious and creative side of you hasn't changed since college!

Excellent Stuff

Looks amazing - I'm really really impressed and am thinking on doing the same thing over here in the UK :)

Any tips I could get from you? - my email address is hutsonphutty at a o l dot com

I reckon it must have taken some time to do!
(Frozen) (Thread)

This is so cool! I would totally go for finding a time/place to bring it out again if you're so inclined. I bet we might be able to fit it into the splash pad area in front of Grand Lake Theater over here. Or maybe in Justin Herman Plaza in SF? I have no doubt I can scare up some people to play.

hey, I just Stumbled on this, and it is TOTALLY AWESOME. Sounds like the gameplay was really cool, with the teams and all. And I love how you have *actual* resources instead of cards. Big win all around!!!

Hey, glad you liked it1

Is the board stil entact, can you bring it to say a college if they wanted to host a giant catan match?
(Frozen) (Thread)

It's still intact. You need a truck or SUV to move it though. I'm based out of San Francisco,

The Settlers Board

(Anonymous)
Are you still trying to find a home for it? I'd hate to have it thrown out. I am unfortunately on the east coast but I will try to find a place to store it if you are just going to get rid of it.

Re: The Settlers Board

I am still looking for a home for it. I won't be getting rid of it anytime soon, but if you know some game enthusiasts on the west coast who'd be interested to have it, let me know.
(Frozen) (Parent) (Thread)

Interested

Any plans to add "Cities and Knights" ?
(Frozen) (Thread)

still need a home?

(Anonymous)
I'll take it off your hands if it's still available. I'll even take it out to burning man with me so you can visit it :)

I'm in Vegas, but I can have an SF based friend grab it if you want it gone NOW, or I'll be there in 3 weeks for Bay to Breakers...

That is so cool! Nicely done! I can see where it would take up a lot of space and require a lot of extra time/effort to set it up and take it down, but it would make for a fun game day I'm sure.
