A Few Clues...

Updated: Apr 22, 2019


I have mentioned my game room in the basement a couple of times. I have a large collection of vintage board games and a few toys. I love the graphics on the old games.


These have been collected over about 20 years—from auctions, yard sales or online. I am at the point that if one comes in, one has to go...



In collecting these games, I have multiples of several games. I pick them up to complete a game or maybe the box is in better condition. While I was decorating the basement a few years ago. I decided to use some spare parts to make coasters.

I picked up this set of coasters at Goodwill for a dollar!


I also had game cards and weapons from an old Clue game.



I spray painted the coasters black and cut the cards to fit in a "random" pattern in the frame.



I then glued the weapons in the corners.




The weapons do fall off from time to time. I originally used by glue gun to attach them. When they fall off, I use Fusion to reattach.


So now the coasters are frequently used! I also collect state souvenir glasses to use in the basement. They are fun reminders of days gone by and it helps everyone to remember which glass is theirs.
