"Perhaps we should wonder what games could be played with the tin itself as a piece!"

"Sadly for me, I do not have such templates. I keep thinking that I could use one of the box folds to line up with one of the folds between the triangles. But with a near 30° turn each time, that may be unfeasible without a very large box and a…"

"My problem is getting the raw materials. I need at least 75 square feet of cardboard, foam mats, or whatever. See calculation. Suppose I want a 3house. I need: * 15 larges, which means 60 8x14.5 triangles, 24.2 square feet * 15 mediums, which means…"

"Has anyone ever tried doing something with thick, rigid foam mats (like those used for flooring in gyms/garages)? Seems like a pattern for the sides could be made which allowed them to interlock and, as such, be disassemblable for transport. Might…"

Anyone have giant pyramid templates / instructions these days?

Just hoping to come across some (preferably simplistic to make) giant pyramid instructions, if anyone has some.  I work at a campground and was thinking this might make a good craft activity for the kids and of course once they are made they could be used to play games as well.Anybody made some recently?  Got any suggestions?  My current best thought was to try blowing up the DIY pyramids sheets from boardgamegeek and maybe cutting out of some 24-pack soda boxes or something like that.See More
