Update #18

Artwork update: City office cards, board graphics!

I wanted to give everyone a quick look at the city office cards as they came in this morning as well as an overview of the changes to the board artwork.  

These are all works in progress, so keep that in mind when checking them out!

There were two big objectives in the design of the city office cards.  The first was to provide a reminder to players to use their power of office, and the second was to bring the flavor of the awesome Thomas Nast political cartoons into the game.   I think these designs hit both of those goals.

On the board art, here is an overview of the updated artwork.  You’ll notice the new brass plaque and thin black lines we had previously announced, but we’ve also made two other small changes.

 The white cubes and favor chips along the waterfront are now a light grey.  This is to avoid confusion as winning these wards allows the player to place an immigrant or take a favor chip in a color of their choice.  We didn’t want to confuse anyone into thinking they had to take Enlgish favors.  We’ve also updated the old ward boss silhouettes on the board with the new street gang meeples!

Note: There is no text on the board currently because that is added by a different design program, it will be on the printed copy.

I’m finishing up the cleanup to the rulebook right now, and everything is on schedule to hit the printer by early July! 

In that regard, I also wanted to ask a favor of all of our backers.  If you have a friendly local game store that you visit or an online game store that you are a customer of, please let them know about Tammany Hall.  Right now there are about 800 copies that aren’t already spoken for from Kickstarter backers, and we need to make a decision pretty quickly about a larger print run for the retail copies of the title.  So please call or tell your local retailers about the game so that we can be sure they are able to get a copy of the game..  we want to make sure as many stores as possible can copies of the retail game.  If they are intersted, our website has information for ordering retail copies of the game:

      Were they called Precinct "Chairmen"? In Illinois, they'e called Precinct "Captains."

      I would like to slander the font choice - but I assume it's just a place-holder... The cartoons look great!

      I'm adding 2 ward bosses and 3 immigrant votes for a font change.

      A Typewriter Font would make it look more vintage.

      Creator Deane Woodland (deleted) on June 20, 2012

      I agree. The block font is not in the style of the rest of the game. The font should at least have serif to match the fonts on the board and the names of the offices.

      Another vote in favour of a more thematic font. Artwork brilliant though... (and the font used for the office names looks good too)

      I just wanted to leave my support in choosing a more vintage font for the text.

      I came to the comment section to comment about the font and found that others beat me to it. So I fourth the motion to change the font and alignment. The art looks very nice. Thanks for the hard work.

      Creator Sean Kafer on June 19, 2012

      Yeah, the font looks out of place, and I might also recommend a center text alignment instead of a left text allignment

    10. Missing_small

      Creator Tom B on June 19, 2012

      I agree too, the text font should be a serif font. Maybe put up a sample with that font so people can see it.

      Creator Keegan Fink on June 19, 2012

      I agree with the card text at the bottom. A serif font would be much more appealing (and thematically fitting) than sans-serif.

      Creator Mark Leech on June 19, 2012

      Here's one more request to modify the choice of art and layout of the text (even the text in the position titles...). Here's to being optimistic and hoping they are just proofs on the art and text wording. Otherwise they look great.

      I agree with Brian; Artwork is incredible, the font, not so much.

      Creator Jeffrey Reed on June 19, 2012

      The pictures are fantastic! It would be nice to use a Victorian or Gilded Age font..... but the concept and art is great.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Chuck Meeks on June 19, 2012

      It all looks great but I tend to agree with Brian about the text on the bottom of the cards. It would look much better and be more thematic if you use the same font as that used on the board like where it says Tammany Hall.

      Creator Brian Current on June 19, 2012

      The cards look great except for the choice of font for the text on the bottom. It does not fit with the theme or match with other text.

      Creator Ray Smith on June 19, 2012

      The Thomas Nast cards are incredible! Great touch!

      Thanks John! I really love the artwork that Byran is putting together for the upgrades. I think it's going to make the game look great. And remember, these are going to be on thick linen embossed cardstock! So they'll look really great.

      Sorry Caitlin! Should have been more specific. You can tell them about the game and direct them to our website! It has information on it for the distributors that we are working with so that they can get copies through the normal retail channels!

      What our we supposed to tell our FLGS to do? Tell them that the game exists? Tell them to contact you? And do what?

      I think alot of people who decided to pay through the roof prices for the OOP original are going to rue the day they made that decision, I am also delighted to have waited and now further pleased at the fantastic artwork that this game has!
