2x 2’x2′ MDF squares (found) 8x 1′ square floor tiles (£1 per pack of 4) 5 minutes’ work and presto! I found a 4′ by 2′ table. It just fit in. — Mike Walker, on the realities behind having a games room of one’s own. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Reply Mike Walker? As in the chap used to write the odd article for WD? Is he blogging somewhere? Reply God, I wish. I just happened to remember the quotation. Same one though. Reply I can’t remember if it was a Jervis column or someone on the interwebs, but they’d asked around the staff who were involved in handling submissions and editing etc at the time, and if I remember right, they just lost contact with him, and he’s just never resurfaced in public since. Damn shame, really. I got rid of a load of old white dwarfs a little way back, and held onto some for scanning before getting rid of. I’m now hoping that those articles were in the ones I kept back… Reply One can but hope! I don’t have any of my old White Dwarfs (or No Quarters – I move around too much to lug stacks of magazines with me), but I know a chap who has kept his and Walker’s articles are still cocking hilarious. Reply Hey I used sticky lino tiles myself a while ago! But I’d textured the board first and they didn’t stick. I might have to put a bit more elbow grease into it because I think they’re a great cheap surface with potential to look really nice.
