Best pimped boardgame of the month, July 2013, 35th 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

I wanted to add some variety to my 7-player game nights (Citadels & 7 Wonders get old when that's all you have that accommodates 7.) And with King of Tokyo on the way, in the mail, I got excited about adding new monsters to the game. After cruising the forums/images I realized there was very little fan-created stuff out there yet, and I saw some people discussing how cool it would be to have this guy in the game...


I'm waiting on permission from the artist whose cityscape art I borrowed. Once I get that I will post Stay-Puft in the files section. If you are interested in being alerted about that, you can subscribe to this thread. Also, if you're a fan of the game and the expansion, I have developed Evolutions for him as well. (While they can't be part of this contest entry because I don't have the artwork finished yet, I thought they still might be of interest to folks viewing this geeklist.) You can find the discussion about the Evolutions here.
EDIT: Well, I took some time out on my vacation to get the Evolutions done (in a hurry) after all. They are not playtested, but they are posted in the files section here. Here's a preview...


I appreciate your thumbs both here and over at the source image(s). Everyone has been so encouraging so far! Thanks to Helge for the invitation to compete in this month's contest. Best of luck to all of you creative, sharing people--you make the hobby more fun for all of us!

Painted my set of 250 or so miniatures for Conquest of Nerath.

I added flight stands for the dragons and transfers to the bases of the heroes and monsters to better identify the color of the die they use in combat.

Those are our first 2 teams for Dreadball. The United Unicorns are my take on the Human Corp, and the Zizolin Geotrygon are my wife's Judwan.

The Unicorns are an attempt at reaching the "flashy" side of Dreadball. I've customized them with horns (obviously !), little Pegasus wings on the Strikers shoe, and Dreadball gloves. All the bases are magnetized as well as the miniatures, for storage and gameplay convenience.
The mounted-robot-unicorn (I know right ?) is actually a Games Workshop model, not an official Mantic coach, but I just needed one. I think I might actually have painted this team as a pretext to possess a robot-unicorn. He has been customized as well to show an actual Dreadball Ball as well as the team features.



Zizolin Geotrygon actually means something =D "Zizolin" is a shade of purple, and "Geotrygon" a fancy name to say "Dove" ; Dove that symbolizes peace, as those damn Judwans are pacifists in the game.



More details and pictures (& teams) can be seen here !

Final just for fun entry. I love this Rathulu retheme by user The Warp, the files are on the game page. The board is mounted on foamcore, the tiles are stickered scrabble tiles, & the bag is a thrift find. The box was some recycled box that I painted & stickered with some art from the net. The Cthulhu start figure I won in the GFGG lottery. I resized the tiles to fit some wooden scrabble tiles & made some fimo bid tokens to finish this off.

Infinity is a skirmish miniatures game that requires terrain. A lot of terrain. So much terrain that there's not much table left to roll dice... So, I pimped my table with some playable dice towers...

Another just for fun. I backed this game at the PnP level & I adore the art in this game. I mounted the boards on an old Monopoly board. The cards are laminated cardstock. The main box, tuckbox, & token box were cobbled from the game images. The kickstarted game had these lovely tokens so I decided to craft some for myself out of fimo. They came out a pretty decent match if I do say so myself.

Hello.
I have build an Ludus Latruncolorum Boardgame. I used a wood wine box, styrodur (i don't know the english name for it), Gypsum, sand, wood glue and some other things.
The whole is intended as a gift for a colleague who goes into retirement.

July was a busy month for me & again this is a just for fun entry. I used to bring Attika over to my mom's to play but then my brother moved back to the coast so then there were 5 player's so that stopped that. I decided to make a 5th player set. I scanned in one of my boards, recolored it & renamed it Delphi after a board that was in the file section by user Netlimpopo (but in German). I also did the same for the tiles & shrine. The tiles were stuck onto fimo discs while the shrine was stuck to a recycled board. I also made up a few more amphoras from fimo. To top it off I made an english translation of the 5 player setup card by Netlimpopo. If you want to build your own set the file is HERE (there's also a high resolution set stored off site.)

This is showing my set against some off the retail parts.

For Robotory I had to fix the flimsy board. A first I was going to print the board on fabric and call it a day, but it was a pain to photoshop the board (to make it seemless and look nice). So I just glued the board to a piece of cardboard. But that created a problem, since I didn't want to fold or cut up the board.

So I said screw it, I'll just create a new box for it.



I got the box at Micheals, created a vector of the logo and printed out labels.

Of course, Robotory just cried out for pimping. While I was trolling eBay for pimping accessories I came across these clear beads with solid bead in the middle of them. I kept them at the back of my mind and when I got to pimping this game, I knew they would be perfect to replace the energy disks.

I thought it would be easy to find cute robots online, but none of them were cute or small enough so I just had them custom made from WickedClay http://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WickedClay?ref=seller_info. They are so cute!


All the pimped components!

Cubes! They are the bane of my existence! They had to go for Balloon Cup. The game doesn't really have a theme, so I just turned the cubes into balloons themselves. And of course, a balloon themed bag to draw the balloons out of. Even though the bag is a bit big, I love the colours.


Now that I've been sleeving all my cards, I've been running into a problem: the cards won't fit into the insert anymore. This caused me great stress until I decided that I'd make my own inserts and make them beautiful.




I got the side pieces from http://rontufox.deviantart.com/ and the bottom piece from http://blindedangel.deviantart.com/. I think it turned out really well.


The balloons on the hops.
