Inspired by the "coffee table" pics of Gollum and others, I took a slightly different route and used some BGG images in glass photo coasters from Hobby Lobby. I made eight, but here is a photo of four of them:



They turned out pretty well and were really easy for a decidedly non-handy guy like me. I'm afraid I wasn't taking notes on who's images I grabbed off BGG, so my apologies for no attribution.

I've never seen the Richard Nixon expansion for Carcassonne. Is it new?

Wow. It astounds me on BGG what some people notice. And I thought I was the observant type.

Just for grins, here are the other four:



Here is a link to the item at Hobby Lobby:

They're kinda pricey for a gameroom knick-knack, but our HL is currently on a 50% off sale on home decor items like this, so that wasn't so bad.

Look at the Carcassone picture. Look at the patch of grass in specific. It looks like somebody reading something. (I believe he was poking fun at watergate) It's why his observations are so astounding. How the hell does someone notice that?

Gee...and here I thought it was because the city looked like Nixon's profile...
