I have a small collection of gameboards that are displayed in the stairwell of my home. None of them are old, or valuable, but they make a nice graphic statement on the wall. I have made several of them myself using different mediums. Of course it's a really ackward place to get a good photo, but here's my best shot. Looking UP the stairs:

And here are some close ups so you can see them better. I hooked this parchessi board years ago and it was a fun one. Love the colors I used - if I remember right, all the wools were as-is.
This little quilt is a backgammon board and I made it just last week. I drafted out the pattern and then pieced it on foundation papers. I had a hard time choosing fabrics and colors so that the design would show up properly. It's not perfect, but it'll do.
I won this checkerboard in an online giveaway a couple years ago - the gal who made it did a great job of distressing it to make it look aged.
The Chinese checkerboard came from the thrift store. I just added some color to it to give it more interest.
This punch needle checkerboard is the smallest item on the wall. I like the stars I added in the border.
This gameboard is one from the thrift store - I think it was once available from Tenderheart Treasures, and I'm not even sure what kind of gameboard it is!
I made this checkerboard years and years ago - my kids actually played with it on occasion. The heart cutouts really make it look dated, but I still like it.
