Use tiles in the following ways:
- Game tile. The main application of this object is to use it as a tile for your game. Tiles are thicker than cards and may be used to represent more solid objects visually.
- Game card. If you need your cards in the game to stick to each other when they are placed adjacent to each other, you may use a tile object. Also consider using a common Game Card object with a magnetic map instead.
- Game board. Some game boards should be moved or flipped during the game. So it is possible to use a tile object to make it happen. Note that if the game board should be flipped only during the setup phase you may consider using different setups instead.
- Click Create Object > Tile in Workshop.
- Fill in all the necessary fields in the right-hand panel.
- Use Magnetic Map, if necessary. See Magnetic map for details.
- Check Hexagonal, if you use six-sided tiles. The rotation step of such tile will be set to 60° instead of default 90° to ease its handling for players.
- Click Publish.
The sides of two neighboring tiles can stick to one another like magnets. An example of sticky tile objects is dominoes. Domino tiles should be laid very closely to each. Sticky tiles help players do that with ease.
See Customizing Object Behaviors for details about sticky objects.
