There are many talented people who have helped develop the games we love to play. Among them are the gifted artists that created the wondrous pieces of art which help breathe life into our beloved games. The pieces they have created, which fuel the fires that are our passion, should be proudly displayed.

Plato said that the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For my many visits to varied museums, many of the works pale in comparison to those in some of the games I have fallen in love with. I would like to share with you some of those pieces that I have become enamored with and please do share with me and others the works of other games that you love.

I have been purchasing sleeves straight from Fantasy Flight, included with the sleeves were these post cards. They are what inspired me to create this Geeklist. Even though these are just postcards, I am going to frame and display them proudly.





I would love to have a production size poster of this mock play.

This game will be funded on Kickstarter in under 35 hours. The art for this game is just phenomenal. These pieces, created by Eduardo Garcia, were released as desktop wallpapers for one of the stretch goals.

I was hesitant to add this to the list, while I enjoy the artwork by Keith Lowe. Nothing really stood out enough to have the want to display, until I saw the box in game reviews. The finish on the box was outstanding; the foreground has a gloss finish while the background appears to have a matte finish. This makes the foreground standout and helps draw your eye. This simple effect took a good piece and made it dynamic and spectacular.



This picture does not do the box justice. If you want to see the box in all its glory, watch the reviews from Miami Dice and/or the Undead Viking

This game frequents my families table top. My wife and kids love the storytelling and the cute figures, while I love the artwork, it is quite haunting and ominous. The works in this game, along with the story, help envelope our imaginations as we become the heroes. Together we strive to be the heralds of justice, driving out the darkness that has enslaved the Kingdom.
