Someone recently asked about icons for; number of players, time it takes to play, and age range for the outside of a game box. Here are some that I created. Here is the link for those that might find it useful:

Not sure if this is the right forum or even the best way to make the files available.

There's also Daniel Solis's project to create a large set of Creative-Commons-licensed game icons: http://www.patreon.com/danielsolis

That's pretty cool of you!

Considering that the 2014 solo design contest is currently running, you may want to consider a number-of-players with just a '1' in, though. ;-)

Good work, thanks for sharing.

Could you be explicit about a license, please? As you're sharing it's clear that you want people to be able to use them, but it's important to know what the terms are.

They are free for others to use. I looked up the Common Creative license thing. So, to make sure others know it's okay to use them there is this:





I just wanted to create some icons because someone on a BGG forum (back in April I think) was looking for some and couldn't find any. I knocked these out in less than an afternoon. So if someone uses them and gives me credit for it I'm cool with that. Hope this helps.

There are 6 types of CC license; you can see them all listed here: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/. The most accommodating one is "CC BY" which only requires attribution. People will be more likely to use your icons if you're explicit about which license your work is released under.

Excellent. You should probably say how you would like to be credited (unless you just want your BGG username used).
