Best pimped boardgame of the month, December January 2014, 41ST 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!!!

Yet another M&M thing...
2 minis (Cheddar Golem & Meeps the Ladybug) that I've modeled in 3D, & prototyped via stereolithography. Then painted after some filing/sanding.
The ladybug's base is designed so that it fits with the wizard's mini, or with the minion it's targeting (looks a bit less neat with large minions, but I didn't want a huge base).





I've also made french player aids, player mats, tuckboxes, & tokens (no pics, they're in the files section).

A friend of mine has a well worn copy of BSG that has been moved from one expansion box to another. I decided it was time for it to get a forever box, that would fit all the expansion components. These pictures are just of the base game, they are demo shots I took before I gave it to him, but the box will hold the game plus all the expansions handily. For those who are interested in a fairly thorough build walkthrough, I've compiled one here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95918

The box is made out of cherry, I mitered the box corners as a homage to the corner-less paper of the Battlestar setting. The box sides are joined with a mitered edge, which is relatively weak, so they are reinforced with 3 mahogany splines which stand out beautifully IRL but are a bit hard to make out in the photographs. The card organizer insert is mahogany, with removable dividers.

These pics are slightly before completion - in the left you can see I have not installed the clasps yet, and in the open shot I have not installed a horizontal bar on one side to provide additional support for the boards.

Ok this one will not be that impressive in pictures. Hopefully the text will explain.


Played Steam Park at BGG.con and LOVED it. Pre-ordered it and played it several times the day it arrived late January.

If you are unfamiliar with it - you are building 3D theme park rides that robots set atop of. One person was having some difficulty with the robots on top so I decided to pimp it up a notch.

Enter MAGNETS!



I superglued magnets under each robot spot and then drilled each robot meeple and glued magnets to them as well.

Pic in progress:


Also glued some pennies in place to give the rides more heft.

Now they have a satisfying "snap" into place and can not get knocked down!

My Simpsons Monopoly

I know, there are already official Simpsons Monopoly games out there, but I wasn't really satisfied with them... nevertheless this was my first attempt on a re-theme of a boardgame.

Overview


Some of the cards:


To sum it up: I created a new board, new cards, new streets (including the Monorail, Duff Beer Brewery, Atomic Power Plant), new money. I bought some yellow dice and characters from German Überraschungsei (= Surprise Egg).

Then I made some Donuts (big and small ones) as substitutes for the houses and hotels.

The streets don't only have the same stage of expansions... of course not! Every "street" has it's own individual stage of expansions (marked with a donut).

i.e. the The Android's Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop:

1. Original screw of R2D2
2. Mana Potion +3
3. Radio Active Man Pictures for sale
4. Radio Active Man Action Figures for sale
5. Radio Active Man for sale!

Don't blame me for the jokes...

Well it was more fun to create, than actually playing it... I mean... it's still just Monopoly

Saikoro is pretty much unavailable in the US, so this is my homemade copy (cover courtesy of very talented acquaintance). The lid is made out of hardboard and tabs snap into the top of the board. The original bottom was replaced with a bit sturdier piece of chipboard, painted black.

The game starts with a copy of Last Word, plus the dice from two copies of Sharp Shooters

There was a Kickstarter for metal scifi themed coins and I bought a big set of them to use with Merchant of Venus and other scifi games.

They are really nice and "clink" great! Also found a decent storage box for them.

Custom insert and wooden player tokens. Insert has felt lined compartments and holds everything from the base game and expansion, ready to play. The wooden discs are so much nicer to use than the dinky little cardboard ones that come with the game.

So we got all those great sponsored counter sheets but no good way to store them. With the Nihon Empire and Barbarians at the Gate I wanted to keep them organized as well as the original box had them.

Quite by accident I found a 2x2 coin storage box and it worked perfectly. This box holds two sets of Nihon Empire counters. Once the BatG counters show up will use another box for those.

The box label was done with a P-Touch labeler machine. Dividers were from the ones I created a few months back (Ogre 6th Edition Counter Box Dividers, Ogre 6th Edition Counter Box Dividers- "Barbarians at the Gate")

Just found out about this contest and would like to share my BattleBall pimped out game.
I repainted one of the teams and made 3D carnage tokens from another set.
I also have a keen dice tower for this game.

Enjoy and leave a feedback comment.
