How to create a board game path in Illustrator

I was wondering, how i could create a board game path in Adobe Illustrator.
The path should contain evenly sized fields, that bend according to the bend of the path. I also want to know how to split pathes, like shown in the image below.

Answer

You could create a custom Pattern brush, and apply it to a path.

  1. Create a rectangle filled grey, no stroke, and and draw a single white stroke on one edge

  2. Group those, drag and drop it in the brushes palette, choose “Pattern Brush” as the brush type

  3. Then apply the Pattern brush to a path.

  4. Draw some circles
