While looking up the original monuments for the Tigris & Euphrates game I discovered the game is due to be released again with slightly different monuments. I made a series of Aztec style monuments for the game instead. The walls for the steps were made using 0.8mm birch and the steps from 6mm poplar (svg here)

With a range of new pieces all that was left to do was play a game. The counter tokens work surprisingly well you just have to remember to modify them each time you lay a new tile but it quickly becomes habbit. The aztec temples go well on top of the existing tiles and quite literally add a new dimension to the board.

We bought the Tigris and Euphrates board game for a friend but it was missing the monuments, move forward 14 months and I finally got round to laser cutting a replacement set that look like the originals. These were cut from 12mm ply and painted to the right colours, they're functional but I should have done a better job on painting. (svg here)
The laser is useful even for silly little things like this lampshade adaptor. It's an ikea lampshade and I've totally failed to buy an adaptor on my last two visits, this time I finally got one and it disappeared in the car on the way home. 2 minutes of drawing and cutting later and I've solved the problem. Should have done this ages ago :)
