I'm looking for a game board where the board illustration shows a sky with clouds - I'm thinking something worker-placement ish with a Zeus or aircraft or Steampunk theme - the key bit being there are clouds you would place pieces onto - any suggestions?

The only game I can think of that has clouds on the board is Cloud 9. But it's not worker placement at all, it's a push your luck game.

Question: Do you have a qame in mind that you don't know the name of? or are you looking for recommendations of games that fit that artwork, theme and game mechanic?

Sorry, it wasn't clear to me...

Dilluvia Project has clouds on the outside, but the worker placement is on the board. Kings of Air and Steam has clouds, but it's more pick up and deliver/programming.

Not a worker placement game, but Via Nebula basically has cloud in its name as well as on the board. It's a pick-up-and-deliver game with beautiful artwork and components.

The latter - I'm actually just looking for a game board that fits the description.

Wow - these are great suggestions. Cloud 9 is along the lines of what I was looking for, but Dulluvia and Via Nebula are gorgeous, Kings of Air and Steam and Euphoria could both work OK. Thanks much!

Cloud 9 has been recently reimplemented as Celestia, which is much prettier (but has sky islands instead of clouds, so might not fit the bill).
