Best pimped boardgame of the month, December 2012, 28th edition

How to submit an image of your pimped boardgame?

Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better, and make sure to remove the space. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:

1) You can submit up to 3 entries.

2) Each entry can contain up to 2 images.

3) That image(s) has to be one of your own. If you like a pimped game of another user, please ask for permission to submission.

4) The image(s) was uploaded during the month in question.

5) Images from your User Gallery are eligible, and images from any other Gallery.

7) It is possible to include a link to a geeklist or a thread, where you find more details about the pimped boardgame.

8) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

9) Winners will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

10) In case of a tie, the prize will be split equally among all the tied people.

11) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.



Prizes

Three will be awarded:

First place:

50 bag + microbadge golden teapot mb


Second place:

25 bag

Third place:

10 bag

extra prize (each thumb up giver):

5 bag randomly one person, who gives this list a thumb up.


So make sure to give this list a thumbsup so that we can keep this list on the front page as long as possible!!! You have the chance to win bag. And there will be more participants -> more pimped games to see!!!

Later editions of Helvetia come with hat stickers to more easily identify the male meeples. I have a first edition and could not get them, so had to make my own. And why stop at hats?

My first attempt at making a playing surface for X-Wing. It's made out of a wood flooring sample that was sanded down and spray painted.

I've made custom fleets for a friend ( cf April 2012 contest) but the 400km between our houses is a problem ( I haven't yet wormhole generator).
So I have made a custom box to hold all theses fragile minis during transport. It's made of foam board, cardboard and Styrofoam.

I always wanted a place to put my dice for this game so I made one. Built a custom tray for my homemade board. The tray holds 8 sets of dice for 8 player tumblin-madness! The tray is held in place by magnets embedded into the tray and tray holder.

I hired Jon Gray to paint my A Touch of Evil: The Coast & A Touch of Evil: Hero Pack 2 figures. He painted the previous 16 figures so now I have the full set of 24 figures painted.

Before the expansion came out, I created a seventh set of playing pieces (dark brown) with the ships from Galactic Emperor, wich uses the same ship models in the same quantity.
The ships came in 1 shape for every ship class, only difference for the players is the color of the ships.
I wanted to have a special shape for every players ships with a minimum amount of work and costs and so I cut off parts of the ships and glued them back on the models on different places, or I just cut them off, leaving the rest of the ship untouched.
Then the expansion came out and I now have 10 different shapes for every ship class.
Finally I painted all the models with a quick paint and drybrush technique with some details.
That´s the story behind the ships.

The original game has a huge Dr. Lobo tracking sheet which is mostly taken up with the illustration and backstory. I made this mini version to save table space. There was also a miss-colored icon in the original so is corrected here.

I made a new card mat for the Surface Mission card deck added with this expansion. I worked hard to match Karim Chakroun's graphic design.

This image shows the mat setup for a 4 player game.



Here's an image showing the new mat with the previous 2 mats I made for the base game.

This is a pretty simple retheme of the squid expansion, but adds some pirate ship goodness to the game instead of just another animal trying to kill you.

Posting just to inspire.
It's also hard to find the squid at the moment.



and in play (mockup):

I added a "waiting board" to the game and grabbed some nicer wooden bits from my Bins-o-Bits™.

Here are a couple pics, and the thread where I talk about how and why we came up with all this is here:
