Re: [Icehouse] Volcano preference question

Opinions differ on this. I think it's fine to have a volcano board without raised dividers, but the raised dividers can make it nice and more uniquely a volcano board. Some people strongly prefer the lines not to be raised, so they can play on either the spaces or the vertices, to get either a 5x5 or 6x6 board.

I think a Volcano board should have spaces that are sized right for a large pyramid. Using a chessboard makes the pieces feel way too spaced out.

Hey All,

I know we've been caught up in the Treehouse debates, but I'd like to change the subject for a quick question.

When people are playing Volcano (or any of the volcano variants) - how important is it to have a board with dividers in between the pieces? You know, like a standard volcano board instead of just a chessboard?

I'm asking because I'm playing around with a craft idea for Origins. Just want to know if I should allow for the divider sections or if I can just put the chessboard in as is.
