Mozilla's FireFox browser has the ability to customize the look of the browser itself by installing persona's. Currently under the "Sports" directory there are a couple of them that have playing cards on them and one that has a set of 3, six-sided dice (the one I currently have installed.) I was wondering if anyone out there with graphic design abilities better than my own has designed any board game themed personas. I know I'd use some cool ones...just wondering.

If you dont know about personas check them out here:

Well given the lack of attention this thread got I suppose there's really very little interest in this idea beside Tom and myself...

...which left me to my own devices...I was really hoping it wouldn't come to that.

So I decided to create one for what is my favorite game...Agricola. Once it's been approved I'll post the link here. I did the best I could and it's pretty OK I think.

Well that was quick. They approved it and it can be found at:

http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/65802

I personally have 4 toolbars showing so I get to see most all of it. If you have fewer toolbars you won't see parts of it but it might still work for you.

I'm thinking about a Pandemic one next. I have an idea or two about it.

I contributed one, but it's "flagged for review." Odd. OK, I dashed it off in a few minutes, using the classic Panzerblitz cover image for a wargamer theme. Not a great work of art, but still, how's that different from the Agricola persona they approved?

If anyone has particular games they'd like to see a persona for, speak up, I'll see what I can do.

Which one? Combat Command, Combat Commander: Europe, Combat Commander: Pacific, or Combat Commander: Mediterranean? The first I'm guessing?

Actually CC:E is the one I own and am familiar with. I really like the coloring and art direction they took with it. Very simple yet powerful.

Well, I think that Settlers should get one for sure... then maybe Ticket to Ride? How about Endeavor?

My favorite so far is the Meeple one.

Lots of Dice

I might have to give this a shot and make one or two.

Ok... I've installed the add on and have the Ricochet Robot theme. I see a banner with half of the image across the top and the bottom. Is there more than that?

That about covers it. You may see more of the images depending on what toolbars you have installed/active. Unlike a theme, which changes the buttons and everything, these "persona"s are just a lite skin for the browser. It may not be for everyone.
