A5 Gamers' Notebook MKII

The first print run of my A5 Gamers' Notebooks sold out at the end of lest year. I'm ready to order a reprint, but want to tweak the design. The original version looked like this although I think this image is based on the smaller (same format) A6 version:

Here's what I have in mind for the new version:

It has the same 6mm square as the original design, but I've now added a page of 7mm hexes on the facing pages, which are scaled to match my existing A5 hex pads. To keep the Notebook utility I've included some lines under the mapping area.

I plan to print them on higher quality 120gsm paper instead of the 100gsm used previously. They will have 50 pages and I expect to sell them for £4.50 each. I don't need a Kickstarter for these, but they'll still be some sort of preorder offer with special pricing.

I'm interested to get some feedback on them, particularly from previous/existing Gamers' Notebook users.


  1. I've been an admirer of your hex pads for some time. They look great.

    1. Thanks. I've had a bit of feedback on Google+ about them. Looks like they might end up as 2 separate notebooks one with grids and the other with hexes.

  2. So does this mean there will be a Hex page on every other page?

    1. Not sure yet. The hex version might have two sizes of hexes on alternate pages with lines at the bottom of the page.
