There are great pictures here on BGG, as we all know.

Sometimes, combined with another one, both shine even more, I think.

Any examples? Try out - find a "perfect pair" and show it here.

The top picture looks bizarre... until you see the box cover that inspired it, and then you're left awe-struck at the effort that went into making this shot!

Sometimes things happen and fit together - and make sense. Somehow.

The two pictures I submitted with the most thumbs:

- Are not taken by myself, but submitted with the permission of the photographer.
- Show a male and a female player in silence, bent over a boardgame.
- Are composed symmetrically, with a central perspective and strong vertical lines directly "through" the persons.
- Show a piece of art in the centre of the background.

I like them both, but together they seem to talk to each other, sharing their secret.


"Contemplation" by Pat Hirtle


Marcel Duchamp and Eva Babitz, 1963, by Julian Wasser

Both games played, Shogun and Chess, could be combined into Shogi, the "Japanese Chess", as Marcel Duchamp - my "avatar alter ego" combined his male and female components into "Rrose Sélavy", as shown on the old picture by Man Ray on the left.

These two, taken by Taylor Liss (XiangQi) and Ryan Maesen (Chess) do not only show the worldwide concept for street art / bronze statues as gamers, but also some significant differences:
Chess in a Park.
XiangQi in the street.
Chess with a solitaire statue.
XiangQi with spectator.

Both eternal games.

Do montages qualify?



Some other great montages, where the addition of a second or third photo creates something beautiful:

Here is a reshoot of the cover many years later with the same people.

This barely qualifies perhaps, but quite a number of Magic the Gathering cards are diptychs, i.e. the artwork on two cards makes a single panoramic image.



The artwork on the single cards is lovely, but becomes outstanding when you put the cards together as "picture pairs".

Did you want regular, or super-sized?
