So, I know there was a thread a couple of months ago (here: Second edition box art) in which the issue of the very prominent North Star silhouette party logo was debated and discussed.

I took from that thread (and note the official picture associated with the game here on BGG), that the logo would be prominently across the front of the box. Though I did not take part in the debate (what do I know about marketing?), I was very pleased from a personal aesthetic point of view to receive my Kickstarter box yesterday, which does not have the silhouette logo on the front of the box.

Perhaps I missed an announcement or a post about this, but it came as a very pleasant surprise. The logo is on the back of the box, where it is noticeable, but unobtrusive. Kudos to whoever made that final design decision. The front-of-box design was, to my eye, jarring and detracted from the great artwork this game box has.

So, yay!

And so it was. I somehow totally missed that. Sorry for getting people's hopes up for the retail release. The box really does look much nicer this way, so maybe next printing...

I believe that the BBoP (Black Bar o' People) is a trademark thing with North Star Games. While is fits in with their party game line, I think something more subdued might work better for their strategy game line (which consists of Evolution and its expansions at the moment).

Anybody have a suggestion for what type of trademark they think North Star Games should use for their non-party games?
