New score track (from the December update)



Old score track (taken from tabletopia)



The new score track is fine but the old score track was so quintessentially 1920s that it was perfect for the theme of Barrage. I'd love to see the old score track make a return, it was a thing of beauty.

Agreed, the new look seems unfinished.

I had not seen the tabletopia version before this post, but I’ll agree that it is perfect for this game instead of just functional.

Absolutely agreed. Old one rocks.

But! After reading the update again, isn't that the low impact map, that will be on the other side of the regular map? Maybe they thought about making the low impact map more readable, hence more neutral font?

As long as the regular map retains the old design, I'm okay.

I considered that but the player board they posted in the same update also ditched the 1920s font which leads me to believe the Broadway font is out all together.

Agreed here as well. The new one is fine but the old one is fantastic.

I could easily live with either, but the old one does seem to fit the game better.

The old was better visually and thematically. The new one looks like crap.

i do not agree. the old font is too much hollywood movie style.... that do not fit with the barrage theme. furthermore the identation of frame give to the track the illusion of a series of film frames... givin again a unwanted link to a movie theme.

by the way also the new font is too anonymous.

Just saw this and super happy to hear the old font is coming back. It was beautiful and very thematic. Thanks Cranio for listening to your fans!

In the "A Tale from Nürnberg Spielwarenmesseupdate" the last image still has the new track.

Is this already a pre-production map? Given it's already February, Chinese New Year starting and shipping taking a while, everything should be ready to go by now for an April delivery date.

Not the font but the old style was better.

Fair enough, opinions differ.
I like what they did with the recessed board. Hard to imagine how that would look with the ‘square’ score track.
The font is fine but as Francesco mentioned above, maybe a bit too Hollywood Art Deco.

What do you mean "did with the recessed board?" The score track is exactly the same on all versions of the board. Did you think the score track was also recessed? Because it's not.

Looks like the score track is recessed on the 3D board.
If not, my bad.

I'm 99% sure it's not. That's a digital shading effect. If you zoom in on 37, 38 you can tell it's flat.

Agreed.

As to the track, I'm glad they changed the font, though I agree that it's a shame they didn't bring back the rest of the old track design too.

I can certainly live with the new track design (and it's better than the version with the plain font), but I preferred the original design.
