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

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
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.
