Monopoly Gameboard (English/Australian Edition): I have forgotten the date but approximately 2004-2007.
When I originally made this board, I also purchased a game that was of the same era/edition, so that the cards would match the gameboard. I was also lucky enough to stumble upon a great wooden tea-box that had movable inserts, and a glass top.
This meant I could make a really nice box to go with my gameboard, with the intention of getting it framed in the same wood.
Well, I used to keep piles of clothing in my room, and one day, I stepped on a pile and the glass broke. I still kept that box for years though, planning on getting a replacement glass piece.
Then I came to Korea. And the box was left in Australia, probably thrown out now (i threw out boxes en masse on one of my visits back).
It’s a little bit of a regret, but considering I’ve never framed it, I guess that’s not something to worry about (btw, I have chosen not to frame almost all of my pieces because a) trusting someone to touch and not wreck my hundreds of hours of work b) not having a really permanent home means that it is best to keep these in a condition where i can fold them up and take them with me, rather than having frames that are close to 1m in height and/or length.
