The representative image for this game is someone's home made set en espanol???

I mean, there's a perfectly good shot of the Rio Grande Games version, unpunched and beautiful. I tried to propose it, but apparantly its already been proposed and moderated down.

I just don't get it... In what way does this image "represent" anything, other than one man's cleverness with Photoshop?

It's in French and yes, it is an odd choice (considering that it is NOT what you get... ).

Agee with all of the previous comments. Based on my ownership of the expansion I would say this one...



...would make a much better "representative" image.

Take a look at these images:



The 5th is IMO the best one that doesn't include modified components.

But i assume the voting was done by people who dodn't know that the first one has modified components. And from this point of view, it seems to be the best choice.

Another reason why pictures of modified components should go into a seperate folder.

I'd go with the 2nd or the 5th myself. Maybe there needs to be several different photo albums (1 for the actual box/component shots, 1 for home-made box/component shots which would also include handpainted firgures and the like, 1 for game-play shots, and 1 for miscellaneous dribble (cats & kids doing unnatural things to the game, shots of just the box artwork, pyramids of meeples, close-up pictures taken at like 100x of 3 or 4 bits & pieces from the game on the game board, etc). Then set the permissions of the first as the only one representative pictures can be chosen out of.
