Hi,
my pimped AMF:

Size comparison of home-made beta-box to Origins and High Frontier.


Unpacking the box:


Original foldable map (size: 100%) vs. house-map (size: 125%)


All maps and player-boards mounted on 3mm Forex and laminated.
Timeline (not on picture) mounted on 1mm Plasticard


The genotypes, cut from 18mm triangular wooden strip. Glued a 20x4mm strip under the triangular one before cutting...for archetyps. Painted in white, grey, green, yellow and purple with GW-colours. Original geno-tents scanned on high-dpi-scanner, digital printed on sticker-foil, then laminated. Cutout and glued on the painted tents and "houses"


The vortex of life - all genotypes (280)


Gene, double-side mounted stickers on 20x16x4mm wooden bricks, cut from wooden strip and painted black and pink. One guy in my gamegroup hates pink...I could not resist ;p


Gene-money. Made from spacers used by prof. floor-tilers. 200 cost 1,80€. (Wild) painted.


Milankovich marker from wooden pieces, 1mm silver-wire, 1€cent, Plasticard, glue and GW-colours.


Greenhouse marker


One-view on all components of the pimped AMF


Space on a 125% map-hex. I can place up to 5 geno-tents without covering the biome-card The huskers in the picture are only placed to show a crowded hex.


Last picture shows the components how they should look ingame.


Hope you like it

Edit: 1 bad thing: they sold an AMF-expansion missprint with everything exept the player-board and the rules printed in brown gulp to me. It would be nice to own one printed in green...bsssssbbssssbbsssbsssssss

Very nice! I know you spent a lot of time on the wooden 'tents' per your other post. How well do they work during play?

This post reminds me I need to take pics of my pimped out set (although not quite as much work/impressiveness as yours)

The wooden tents are awesome; they have a strangely compelling power over me. I'd love to play around with them in my hand.

Excellent work. I wish my copy looked like that!

Did you consider improving the biome cards? I'd thought of producing new versions, with the background colour more similar to the terrain type: light blue for Marine, Yellow for Desert etc.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

"Wow" and one more "wow."

I know we have the same game, but yours seems so much more....what's the word....evolved.

Simply an amazing version of a great game. I would pay top dollar for this kind of customization. A real work of art in my humble opinion and thank you for sharing your photos.

Spectacular...In the survival of the fittest, yours wins hands down. Now that American Megafauna is almost out of print, I am considering now how to republish an upgraded version incorporating your ideas. Thanks for the samples you gave me at Essen.

That's very nice to hear! The game is on my wishlist for a long time now. Right now the visuals are keeping me off a little, but when there will be an upgraded version, I will definately buy it. Please keep us up to date with your plans!

Thoughthammer.com currently has a Deluxe Edition of American Megafauna listed for Preorder, saying estimated stocking date is December 2010. They also have the publisher listed as Ad Astra Games.

Phil do you know anything about this?

I've always considered grabbing a copy of American Megafauna and the thought of a deluxe edition is enough to help me block the fact from my mind that I would rarely get the game to the table.
But I'm a little confused about this entry since it isn't coming from Sierra Madre.

Thanks

Very nice!
I'm going to pimp my megafauna board as well, but I'm thinking on how to get a good quality version.
Did you scan the original a2 board, or is there a place, where it can be downloaded from?
