I'd read somewhere that the pictures on the visitor cards in second edition Viticulture are paintings of the people credited as sponsors on the bottom of the cards. Is this true or was I just seeing things?

Buck: Most of the visitors in Viticulture are based on real people. They were credited by name on the cards in the first edition.

Did they send photos and the artist create cards based on their likeness or was it done in some other manner?

Yes, that's how we did it. We've since moved away from custom art for a few reasons. You can see my original thoughts on the following blog entry, and there's a link at the bottom of it regarding my current thoughts:

That's awesome and thanks for the quick replies! One of the totally charming touches in Viticulture in my opinion. One of my and my wife's favourite games (and Tuscany: Essential Edition is a great addition to it). Cheers!
