Today, I stumbled upon Feudum, and thought that the art for the game was absolutely stunning!.... And a bit strange too.
(Just to be clear, I'm not talking about functionality, just about the artwork in itself.)

Do you have other examples of board games with very unusual artwork?



Edited for clarity.

Re: Games with peculiar graphic designs
It is hard to know what you would think of as "peculiar". I just looked at the Feudum artwork and graphics and to me it looked peculiarly unpeculiar.

If by 'peculiar' you mean 'unique', and by 'graphic design' you mean 'artwork', then I would point you out to Dungeon Degenerates: Hand of Doom.

Haha, okay, I'll try to explain a little more.

I think the art direction of Feudum is different than the usual bland stuff, like Twilight Struggle or Puerto Rico, or very generic, like Descent.

And that's what I'm looking for, those games that have a very special look! Like, if you go to a convention not knowing any of the games presented here, these would be the ones to really catch your eye.

Is it a bit clearer explained that way?

Yeah, I might have the wrong words here!
And that's precisely the kind of games that I'm looking for, thanks!

I find that the Oniverse games have distinct artwork that is immediately recognizable.

Yes, it's a great example of the PostAdventureTimeism branch of the Cult of Keith Haring. Will not age well.

Dungeon Petz and Dungeon Lords have a very distinct style, and I love it.

I've always found the artwork of Dungeon Fighter to be hilariously odd.

Too Many Bones's art is so "peculiar" that it kills my interest in the game, even though I'd probably really enjoy it.

Take a look at Asgard. It took me some time to get used to it.

One of my grail games is, Quirks...the art really makes the game, and although I've never played it I would happily grab a copy just to look at it.

Quirks

It reminds me of a game I played recently, Bears vs Babies. The cards were somewhat funny to look at, but the game was absolutely terrible... It blows my mind to learn that the creation of the monsters, which is the only fun part of the game, was stolen from a 40 year-old game. shake

Anything by Mihajlo Dimitrievski. He's done a lot of work for Daily Magic Games and for Garphill Games, no doubt among others. (Disclaimer: He did the art for one of my own games, so maybe I'm prejudiced.)

Yikes! Yeah, the "art" in that one is horrendous. I can only hope Quirks plays better than that one...but maybe they ripped off the rules as well...
