I'm planning to have bags made on CowCow for the worker, hazard, and teepee tiles. I'd like them to have the "1", "2", and "3" images from the back of the tiles on the bags, but I can't find any good samples of these images. Can someone help me out?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: Thank you to those who helped out. The bags are done. Here are the links that you need to order them for yourself.

For CowCow, you used to be able to just replace "artscow" with "cowcow" in the URL, but that doesn't seem to work anymore. So, here are links that work on CowCow.

Any chance you'd make a couple extra for other interested parties?

Can you take the images from the rules?

I'll certainly add the project to the big list of ArtsCow/CowCow projects when it's ready.

I only have the downloadable rules (physical game is still on its way), and those images are way too small.

Re: Image Request
I can scan from components or the rules, but again, the images will be tiny. The tiles themselves are only an inch tall.

Well, I might be able to work with them anyway, even if it means I redraw over them to get a scalable vector image.

Send me a PM and I'll shoot 'em over when I get home tonight.

Re: Image Request
Thanks for the scans. I did my best to trace over them to get this:



I couldn't identify the font that was used for the numbers, so I traced them as well. shake

Now I can use these to create the rest of the image for the bag.

Re: Image Request
Instead of that font, you could always use an old-timey western font. I wouldn't be too worried about making the font match if its a bag to hold the tokens.

Otherwise, that image looks great!

Re: Image Request
First attempt at a bag design. I was going to use the box cover as the background, but it didn't really fit well within the dimensions. So I used Andreas Resch's cool 3D view of the board for the background, and carefully extracted the title from the box cover.

Re: Image Request
- why the bags? (are tiles drawn randomly at some point?)
- once you're "ready", will you post these somewhere where they could be ordered?

Tiles are drawn randomly throughout the game, so the bags are an alternative to "shuffling" piles of tiles.

Yes, I'll link to the project and add it to this GeekList.

This was my attempt. It uses the awesome illustration found in the rulebook. My plan was for this to be the front and the opposite side would just have the numbers.

And it offers a quicker and less fiddly setup.

Actually, you are definitely right. The whole point, for me, is to make for easier and faster setup and gameplay. With that in mind I might get bags with just the numbers (plus the slight embellishment) on both sides.

You scanned that from the rulebook? Is the print version different from the downloadable rules? I didn't see it looking like that online.

I didn't notice that image in my rule book but it is on the back of the player mats. Great image and an excellent choice for a bag design. Nice work!

It's on the very first page on the top right. I see it in the physical rule book and the one in the files section here.

Ok, so you added the rest of the background then. I hadn't found a hi-res version of that image, otherwise I would have used it.

Will you send me a version without the title already on it?

I'll PM a scan of the rear of the player mat. I can't promise the highest quality as my scanner is merely passable.

Re: Image Request
Thanks for the scan. I moved the title up and the tile down to allow the illustration to get the best visibility.



I'm sure that the title now falls partly outside of the safe zone, but I think it's worth it for the sake of the illustration.
