Summary
Inspired by old game boards such as Parcheesi, Sorry!, and Chinese checkers, each symmetrical design began with a grid. These grids encompass a quadrant from each of the original game boards. From there, they blossomed. Like mandala designs or the views seen through a kaleidoscope, the Gameboard/Symmetries has no right way up.
