This is a great game.

Can someone kickstart a beautified version of the game?

The original game artwork sucks. With nice artwork it'll make the game even more enjoyable and adds on even more to the playing experience

The box art was ugly too.

So i hope the publishers can come up with a beautified version if not kickstart to get that. I believe a lot of people will look forward to this!!!

Personally, I like the artwork—including the box.

I think it's a matter of personal tastes. It isn't my favorite art, but I enjoy it well enough. I'm sure there is a more technical name for the art style, but it has a bit of a retro feel to it that I kind of like....

Any attempt to beautify this game will surely lead to less legibility so count me out.

Yeah, I think the simple artwork was done deliberately to not distract from all the other things you need to be able to see/keep track of on the card.

Adding all sorts of multi colored illustrations would just mess that up, and make the game harder to play.

Yep. Just look at Chicago Express vs. Chicago Express for a prime example.

I can see that there's pretty good illustration to show the difference however i believe that adjustment could be made to accommodate both aesthetic and vivid on tile text and iconography

So... they spend some real production money on the art that is already there, and most people already like it, but you think they should spend extra money to do it again?

Generate your own product, then see how good that idea sounds.

All,

Artwork is fine and very functional

I have played 4 games so far and have never thought "hmmm, I wish the artwork was better"

Thx

For me the artwork does not make me want to try the game in the beginning. Just wanted it to look nice... i guess i can only wait for 2nd or 3rd edition then if they would revamp or remake the art.

Anyways it's nevertheless a well made game

I honestly believe the artwork is good enough. It's not the next best thing, but it's competent enough to keep the game clean and still have interesting art.

I'm sorry, but I think you posted this on the wrong forums. You're looking for the Glory to Rome section.

I like the artwork as a whole. I think one thing that would have been nice is to have separate lake tiles, that are kept stacked with the other basic tiles.

I understand the mechanical and practical purpose of having the double sided tile use. Esthetically, it would be nice to have lake tiles without the big "A, B or C's" on them. It would enhance an already great thematically-integrated game.
