Alright- he did 3 polyurethane coats and doesn't want to do more ...but it definitely came out great and we had a good time in the making of it.
These old games have alot more play depth and strategy to them than things like Monopoly and Candyland :)

Back of the board: Red Oak 3/4 Ply + Leopard Wood Border

One issue we had and didnt fix was small gaps between wenge lines and red oak where glue didnt fill in fully. I had considered
pressing in some glue with dark sawdust-but was afraid of doing any extra sanding on the ply-you can go thru those veneers pretty quickly.
