I really like the new edition of Evo. So I wanted to buy one microbadge but... there are only microbadges for the first edition.

So I've created 3 new microbadges (my first ones):


- the meteor (from the meteor token) :




- the die (the most powerful face of the combat die) :




- the dino eye (it appears on each card):

 



What do you think ?

The meteor is available.

I did not submit the die nor the eye, they were not received well on the Microbadge Feedback forum.

But as you like the eye, I think I'm gonna submit it.

For what it's worth, from a complete outsider's point of view (I don't have the 2011 EVO and I don't expect I will), the new die with its horn symbols is the one thing I would instantly associate with the 2011 EVO. Incidentally it is also the one thing that really gives me "I want" feelings.

The lone yellow eye, well, it's a lone yellow eye. Even knowing what game it is supposed to represent, I still wouldn't have guessed exactly what it has to do with it – if you hadn't explained it (a detail in the new card frame art, it turns out).

I don't know what kind of criticism you got regarding the die symbol. For myself, I cannot see anything majorly wrong with it, but since, again, it seems such an obvious choice to me, I got interested enough to try making a version myself, with some minor differences:

(Feel completely free to use it, modify it or ignore it, as you please.)

The only criticism was a question as to whether Evo really needed 3 different microbadges.
