Kensi is a set of free wargames rules for samurai warfare ranging from skirmishes to large battles. The rules include a fantasy element, and the world is a not-quite-historical Japan.
Valley of the Apes is designed as an adventure game for kids. Players create their own jungle terrain, scatter the encounter tiles (with hazards or treasures) across the valley, and send bands of toy soldier figures to seek fame and riches.
The Wargames Table has a quick tutorial on making roads from cork tiles.

On Board Game Geek, there’s a nice set of instructions on making high quality circular counters.
