I'm currently in the process of redesigning a personal copy of Dominant Species. My intention is to document my progress, design and final product. I wanted to make a deluxe copy that fits with my personal designs tastes without losing the original feel and spirit of the game.

The project will involve full redesign of the board, animal sheets, wanderlust tiles, tundra tiles, dominance cards, tokens, elements and box.

My plan is to remake the wanderlust titles from 3mm acrylic hexagons with a label applied to the top. Tundra tiles will be created from frosted acrylic that will be etched and paint filled so when placed over the tiles it will show the artwork from tile below slightly. Element disks will either be die cut board or thin wooden disks etched.

I am still in the process of deciding how to go about the production of some components but as a professional graphic designer I don't want to spare any expense in producing a deluxe copy for myself.

A raccoon would be a great choice for omnivorous! Foxes do eat berries and other plant material - so they are a good choice too! They are also probably cuter (to some extent - maybe not to Australian farmers though Lanfearious!

I am just speechless. The cards are stunning and I even like their cuteness in spite of being an incorrigible cynic. A larger/more easily readable font for the text on the cards would be welcome, however, for us middle-aged and older fogeys with weakening eyesight.

Well done indeed!

Great work. To be honest I like this set so much better than the samples Chad posted in every aspect including pictures, font and colors..!

Hope to see these designs get picked up and printed by GMT.

Exceptional. I love it.

I'd like to see what you do with the board and tiles, although I hope there won't be photos on those.

Stephanie, I am speechless. I thought I was the only one that loved a game enough to make an "art version" of it.

I've finally found some spare time to look into this project again. I've just uploaded print resolution files for the cards for those who were asking. Hopefully they should be approved soon to download under files.

Also reworking the player reference sheets to tie in and new element disk design.

Hi Stephanie.

Did you ever finish this player sheets? Or perhaps you made game board?
Is there any chance to share some files? Even if they're not finished.
