My 100th Geeklist: No Looking Back - Street Signs That May Have Been Produced by Board Game Companies...And what do really long Geeklist Titles look like on the new site anyway? I wonder if that mouseover will cover the whole screen or just cut it off mid

This is my 100th Geeklist.

Apparently, I really Do have too much time on my hands.

I had planned to do a retrospective called "They Can't All Be Winners". I was going to look back on all my worst geeklists and explore what went wrong, but that idea is better in theory than reality. So I decided to just do a regular geeklist.

Now on to the paper-thin setup of this geeklist.



I've been noticing a few Street Signs lately that I believe were designed by the Board Game Industry.

Sometimes it's a publisher and sometimes it's a designer, but if you look closely, you can see the undeniable fingerprints of the Board Game industry in these signs.

I've collected a few examples below.

If you've seen any in your neck of the woods, please let me know.

By the way, Did you like that solid horizontal line? It took me a while to find that one. It's [hr] if you're interested.

This has euro written all over it.

"I know; I'll get some wood! DAMN it's all gone. Go fishing? DAMN no food left. Guess I'll plant some carrots. DAMN no fields. Oh well...guess I'll procreate again."

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

In their ongoing quest to keep costs down, Lookout Games seems to have skimped a little on these traditional New Orleans sidewalk "street signs", choosing to just paste them right on the street itself instead of wasting the time to mount them up on metal signage of the expected height and thickness. The alignment's not even right! Look at that awful kerning!

Clearly an action-point allowance game. Try reading, understanding, and reacting to all this while zipping by at 55 mph! Too many choices that take too much time to do!

The subtle color palette, the font, the composition, the outstanding clipart...

Definitely, a work from Cambridge Games.

Greetings.

Maybe this sign is located somewhere in Colorado next to the Coors Beer taste testing department?
