Hello BGG,

I run a blog interviewing artists and designers about the art in board games. You might have seen my blog on the BGG listings: More Games Please: Art in Board Games or stumbled across it online.

In all the BEST games of the year voting I've not seen much conversation about the art so I've created one for the best overall board game art of 2017 on my site.

Best Board Game Art of 2017

Voting is now open! until 31/12/17 (11.59 BST).

Feel free to discuss below, I'm just trying not to talk about my own preferences!

Thanks,
Ross

EDITED: to shift talk from nominations (now closed) to voting (now open!)

1. London 2nd edition.

You can close the poll now.



Edit: I suppose Twilight Imperium 4 looks rather swish...

Based on the nominations so far this is going to be a really tough call come voting time.

Maybe I should introduce a First Choice, Second Choice, Third Choice points based system or something? What are people's thoughts on that?

It's been a day since I opened the Nominations and there's already been over 30 games suggested so far.

I'd love to see more come in as there have been an absolute wealth of good looking games released this year.

If you're interested, throw your suggestions in, there's a week to go and then the list will be brutally chopped down to 10.

Thanks to all those who have voted already!

Day 3 with over 40 games nominated so far.
Here are my 3 favorite reasons for a nomination so far.

" If I had to choose which game box I'd go on a date with, it is definitely this one."

"Every single piece of art in the game is stunning and if it was larger could easily be framed and put on a wall."

"It's so pretty. It looks like so much care and attention went into the illustrations. It reminds me of the adventuring books/graphic novels I loved as a kiddo - and still do."

There's still time to suggest your fav art - NOMINATIONS OPEN UNTIL 21/12!

Nominations closed yesterday and today the vote has begun!

The top 10 most nominated games (out of more than 80) make up the list.
It's a great mix full of gorgeous artwork.

Go take a look and vote, who wins is up to you.

It's a shame Gloom of Kilforth didn't make it on the list. It's what I nominated. The game is gorgeous.

I think there were a lot of games that missed then top 10 that had great art, it’s the difficulty with any kind of list like this I suppose. My main idea was to just get people talking about it so if it does that for a bit then I’ll be happy. I plan on some follow up to the nominations and vote, such a huge amount of work and talent goes into all of the art in the industry.

The art is amazing!

Was Twilight Imperium 4 too late to the party? That looks so nice but I am passing as I don't think we could muster more than three players for a long game like that. It would be right up my street otherwise!

Twilight Imperium 4 did get nominations, but it was probably a bit too late in the year to gain the same kind of traction as others on the list.
