Ru and I were amazed to find that dung beetles aren't just black! Dung beetles can be really colourful...

...which is perfect for our dung beetle playing pieces because each player can choose which colour they would like to be!

We decided to paint our dry clay playing piece lots of different colours using acrylic paint.

This is a really simple way to make a playing piece based on a dung beetle.

We used a small ball of clay which we flattened a little. Then we used a sharp twig (a blunt knife would do) to draw in details. We drew the outlines of wings, legs and head.

Over the next few posts Ru and I will think a bit more about each insect in turn and brainstorm some game strategies based on the insect and its behaviour!

Today we'll look at the Hoverfly...

When working out your game strategy, a lot will depend on which insect you choose and which part of their life-cycle or behaviour you focus on.

So you've got a great board game idea and now you'd like to make it more complicated or make it look more finished?

You can follow the development of Ru and my dung beetle board game as we take it from first ideas, through playing it and working #board # https://t.co/dnLORyoDif https://t.co/WUnYoYpgS9

In our last post we showed you how we made our marble/dung ball tunnel game!

Here are a couple of videos of us playing this really simple and really fun game... #board #dungbeetle #game #insects #marbles #playing https://t.co/0CUFgHyFPC https://t.co/vm4i75st0X

If you have some drawings of insects, why not cut them out and use them as playing pieces or counters for your board game?

First of all we cut out our paper insects.

Then we thought about what the insects would do. #board #counter #game #insects #playin https://t.co/HLtdgcqDOi https://t.co/ICyuL4pWc0
