As a board game aficionado and someone that aspires to design his own game in the far future, I love reading about and watching the development of several designs, of famous and budding designers alike.

One of the things that I constantly see is the several iterations a game goes until it goes to the print, receiving all the chrome and bits and graphics they deserve and we require as gamers.

This geeklist try to assemble all pictures of prototypes and final products I could find here in the geek (and in external links when possible). Since one design can go through several iterations before going to the print, I am restricting myself (if possible) to a picture of the last prototype before the graphic wizards started doing their magic, so most of the changes you'll see might be pure cosmestics without much influence in gameplay.

By no means it's a compreensive list, so feel free to add any game you can find a picture of the prototype and of the final components.
