Friends of ours taught us to play a game they called Joker. It’s similar to the game Sorry but for 6 players. The board we learned on was 6-sided with flat sides and painted a solid color. I wanted to make my own and of course had to ‘tweak’ the design a little. It’s maple , lyptus, walnut and cherry 1/4” pieces fit over a birch plywood substrate. Hope you like it!

(EDIT)- This board has a 1/2” Baltic Birch plywood substrate overlaid with the 1/4” wood pieces that make up the top. The design is made up of 217 separate pieces of walnut, maple, lyptus, and cherry.
