To the Devs:

I took the liberty of shrinking BGG guy into a 60x60 png (despite what Apple says, apparently 60x60 works the best for the icon).

If it goes into the main directory here and one line is added to the head of the main page like the following (but encased in angle brackets):
link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/AppleBGGIcon.png"/

it should appear as the icon whenever an iPhone, iTouch, etc. user adds a shortcut to the BGG in their main menu.

Apple's instructions are at:
http://developer.apple.com/iphone/devcenter/designingcontent..., under Create a WebClip Bookmark Icon.

Discussion about the funky sizing that works best is at:

(Edited because it originally looked like the users had to do this. If the Devs do the above, all the users have to do is add the shortcut)
