If tokens go on those circles, is it important that they are all the same size? As it is now, the spaces are smaller towards the back of the store. I know this makes sense for perspective, but for a game board, should the spaces be a uniform size?

Personally I don't think it's a problem as long they are large enough that it is clear that the cube like token is in the space. I would like to keep the perspective, so any suggestions are gratefully received though.

i think the grey floor is way too much. super markets are usually much lighter feeling, this feels like a garage. maybe a subtle speckled yellow or a tiled brick red would be better suited.

the shelves in the back look pretty barren. supermarket shelves are always packed overflowing, this place looks like a storm is approaching. no meat in the deli case?

as a small nitpick, the things on the visible shelves being a straight line of blue looks like an aisle full of one brand of paper towels. probably not a big deal, but worth noting.

functionally it looks good! what do the different coloured circles mean? any reason you chose this perspective v. an overhead view?

Whoops, forgot to put the meat in the deli counter. I was in a bit of rush to get things 'finished' yesterday.

I think the deadline is extending, so I'm going to add a bit more detail. I'll take the opportunity to change the floor too. Yellow-speckled sounds good, though I'll need to make sure the spaces remain visible.

I was thinking the different circles would be locations to buy the different goods. Didn't want to infer too much, as that is the game designers job right?

I choose this perspective just to be a bit more 'visually appealing'. Not sure if it works, but hey let's see what happens. As you can tell I'm not really an artist, but wanted to give this a try.
