Reference Cards

Contains reference cards of which chess piece each of the mobs represent.

The Pieces

These five pages contain all of the pieces needed to play the game.

There are a lot to get through so be prepared for some serious cutting and sticking hours. Maybe get a friend to help.

The Board

Two pages to use for the board. You'll need to print two copies of each to make all four corners of the board.


Thanks to tantusar for combining all of the PDF pages into one easy download.


  • If you are printing the board on standard paper, use tape rather than glue to stick the pieces together to prevent the board from warping.
  • Crease along all of the folds before you start any gluing.
  • Don't try glue all all of the tabs at the same time. Do one or two tabs, let them dry for a few minutes before gluing another one or two tabs, and so on.

Do you have another tip that should be here? Leave a comment and let us know.
