Austerity - Envelope Edition

Austerity is a solo game in which you run the budget of a country under austerity, designed by Jake Staines. It won Best Game in the 2015 Solo Design Contest on the BGG design forums.

The game is freely available from the Files section of its BGG page. These builds were done to fit into a Royal Mail Large Letter (hence card tokens and not cubes, and no box) as give-aways on BGG's games-for-geekgold lotteries.

 

 

The board is mounted on 480gsm card, using the label as the hinge; the counters (replacing the cubes that should be in the game in order to fit into an envelope) are mounted on greyboard and die-cut, the cards are constructed using the third method in this tutorial video.
