Start by slipping your board game into a plexiglass shadowbox frame. Sort out all the cards, dice, and tiny pieces, storing each in their own Ziploc® brand Sandwich or Snack bag. Adhere the bags to the back of the frame making sure they’re properly secured with fasteners, and then secure the frame on the wall with the proper brackets. You can take it down anytime you want and play right on the framed board.
