When Dark Tower Meets Lego!
Building The Game Board:
    This was a challenge. I took a scan of the map from page 14 of the manual and
loaded it into Corel Draw as the first layer and locked it so it wouldn't move. Then on a
second layer I overlaid a table of squares. I started out thinking I was going to use 4
each of the 32x32 base plates. This would give me a resolution of 64x64 LEGO points
for the map. Well it tuned out that when I got the tower built and put in the middle of 4
of the base plates there wasn't enough room to build a map big enough for
Minifigures just the Microfigs.  So I decided to use 9 base plates. This gave me a
96x96 LEGO point map.
I aligned the edges and filled in any square that covered a map line with black and the
frontier with blue. Once completed I exported the data to a text file and wrote a program
to analyze it and tell me how many and of what kind of tiles I would need to create the
map.

1 x 3 = 44
1 x 4 = 72
1 x 6 = 31
1 x 8 = 22
2 x 2 = 0
