Printable Havannah Boards

I'm sure someone has done this before, but I couldn't find any high-resolution Havannah boards online, so I whipped up some DSC-compliant PostScript to draw seven printable Havannah boards (from base-4 up to base-10 in one PDF file).

In case you haven't heard of Havannah and didn't bother to read the Wikipedia article, it's the name of an awesome abstract board game invented by Christian Freeling. Havannah combines some elements of Hex and TwixT, with a delicate taste of Go. Under its simple rules lies a rich repertoire of strategies and tactics that fascinates me.
