Best pimped boardgame of the month, February 2013, 30th 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!!!

Meta stuff

This is my custom carrying case for the X-wing miniatures game. I found an old Falcon action figure case at a garage sale for $3. After dremelling out the innards, I contacted Battle Foam to see if they could help with the insert. I designed the insert, sent the specs, and Battle Foam delivered. It fit perfectly and works great.

It will hold:
4 Xwings
2 Ywings
2 Awings
2 Falcons
1 Firespray
2 TIE advanced
5 TIE fighters
4 TIE interceptors

(The foam is deep enough to stack the ships on top without crushing)

This past month my husband built a custom Mice and Mystics box for a fellow geek. I think he did a fantastic job and it was pretty hard to part with it!

I love this game but I'm not a fan of playing with cardboard standup tokens as players. Instead, I searched for some miniatures I could use to replace the cardboard that comes with the game. Here are the minis I found for the base game, which I then painted.



And this pic is a close up showing one of the kickstarter characters next to the original cardboard character from the game.

I know, not original, but I really like how my paint job on the Tzolk'in wheels turned out. I used acrylic paint and then did a grey wash with an antiquing medium.

Now you can "screw" your oponent and drive him "nuts".

I used screws and nuts to replace influence markers AND denote control.


A small nut denotes 1 influence and a large one 5 influence. Control is displayed by screws. A small screw reflects a controlled country, a large one a controlled battleground. You can really see at one glance how powerful a player is in a given territory (e.g. Europe)

Not only is it more thematic to use the nuts and screws, it also feels better when you place these on the board as they are heavy in your hand.



The initial idea for this pimp (without the screws) was implemented by

see his picture:



I immediately loved his idea, but saw problems in displaying control in the game hence I came up with the idea of using screws (M8 16 mm and M8 30 mm), which turned out to be very neat.

To go with my Hero cards and mats, I commissioned BEK Laser to cut some cube trays to keep your hit points and victory point tracks organized.

A 10mm cube fit perfectly in the trays. Now no accidental knocking of your cubes around!

The Hero cards, Hero Mat, & XP Tracker are available for download-

I upgraded my AF not only with the official upgrade pack but I also upgraded my fuel tokens to match the swirl of the star on the board and upgraded the ore tokens with real cubes of ore!

Set up of the game for 3 with all upgrades and expansions


A closer look comparing the original resources to my upgraded ones.

Me and my friends thought that it would be better to have the Mages on a standee rather than have them flat on the board. That it would be easier to see the mage separating it from the rest of the cards. So after 5 hours, here is our version of the Mages!

A lot of work has been done with these standees...We had to photoshop the images to take them out of their card backgrounds since we wanted to work with high resolution. And they are mirrored images, so you can see the mages on both sides, whether they are facing you and your opponent.

I made a card mat for the game. It has a ton of cards of various types so thought this would be handy to keep them organized and less daunting for new players.

The mat is now available for download- Shadowrift Play Mat

I finally finished painting up my Mice and Mystics set, which took too long because I only rarely sit down to paint.

Invariably, I finish small art projects like this and post them to BGG during the same month that other people hand-carve custom game boxes out of 3,000 year old redwood, or create holographic player aids out of lasers, tin foil and a bit of twine... but, fwiw:
