Yes, it's too late. Yes, art is subjective. I'm not interested in whining as much as in simply going on record as saying that I think it would have been an amazing shout out to their fans and to the bgg community gaming spirit if they had used

's alternate art that proved so successful here on bgg.


If they wanted a more modern, family friendly, anime fan friendly look, (to my untrained eye), Tzalem's art looks like a more polished and finished version of what they are offering, although, again, art IS subjective.

Who knows, perhaps they DID want to use Tzalem's work, but things like international copyright laws made it difficult.

If you are curious, take a look and tell me whether you agree/disagree: Tzalem's complete stickers set & heroes sheets

I appreciate the sentiment, but I'm not sure I understand it. The new art is by a BGG user:

And the Kwanchai stickers seem to be more popular overall, on BGG.

Thank you for posting and pointing that out. I had never seen the Kwanchai stickers until you posted this. It makes much more sense now!

I would love a stretch goal or add on of alternate art.

The original art wasn't great, but the new art is awful. I can't think of another game where I actually dislike the art. I even like the original Glory to Rome art!
