    Tom gave me a bump to set this years compition in motion! Usual 100 from Tom and my 100 bonus dollars for first place. After some time Korrun has been paid his bonus money from winning the last years board making competition(Reef)...yeah I'm lazy and anti-man....it took a while to bypass PayPal. Any way, I believe that Steam Punk is this years theme(2nd place last year)...I'm open to thoughts....changes....voting for the next competition

    i want equal amounts of blueberry's
    I play on any field of battle...not just three boards

    Sounds good to me; been meaning to brush off the cobwebs and design something. What are the parameters (dates, etc)? 

    I'm a man.
    But I can change,
    if I have to,
    I guess...

    I don't have a good idea for this, but if I think of one I might throw my hat in the ring.

    My only real experience with steampunk is Wild Wild West, and I can't see trying to make that into a map.

    I have a train based idea, but haven't gotten very far yet. If I'm the only one, then we should get a theme that everyone feels like working on.

     

    But, if we want to keep it, here's some reading to spark some ideas: http://steampunk.wikia.com/wiki/Steampunk

    Anything to do with clockworks, steam, trains, airships. Can be alternate history or post-apocalyptic. You could also push it up into dieselpunk.

    Some ideas:

    I got a board image together, but haven't figured out how to play it yet. also not sure it's steampunk-y enough.

    anyone got thoughts?

    i had some thoughts of making a scenario (or maybe just a new board) off of Kensington with the clock gears for this theme

     

    Also: Airship Pirates! If I could find good images to utilize, I think I could definitely do something with that; got some minor ideas; tho would need a few factories, and I am *not* literate when it comes to programming those.

    I thnk that image looks great, and game play seems pretty straight ahead.  I suppose you could have some objects that give extra bonuses, but I think I would keep it simple - with no fancy mods and divide things up into five or six buildings as continents with four to ten territories in each.

    Agree. The image looks good and can fit into the Steampunk theme...but those card images look generic. {#emotions_dlg.lol}

    I had a similar thought a while ago but with actual gears.  Here is the start/image if anyone wants it.

    How do I make a new version of a board again? I know i need to do that to create new scenario under an existing live board. I obviously did it once upon a time or i wouldn't have incremented versions of my other boards, but can't remember.
