The proofs are here! (Sort of)

Short pre-weekend update.  The proofs arrived at my house a day early.  Which is awesome.  FedEx wanted a signature, and I wasn’t home.  Which is not awesome. 

However, we will have them today..  Which means they will be reviewed, there will be tons of photos, and assuming everything is in good order, full production will begin very shortly! 

The reason I’m writing today is to ask for your help!  Y’all are what made this game possible in the first place, and I want to make sure y’all are included in making this game the best it possibly can be.  I’m going to be taking *tons* of photos this weekend and uploading them to kickstarter.  The more eyes on these things the better, so I want all of your feedback on the components.  What you like, what you don’t like.  I want this to be the best version of Tammany Hall ever, and I want it to be your game as well!

I can’t promise we can make all of the changes suggested, but we do want to make this game really great.

For now: enjoy one more photo from the printer.  The gamebox!  This is the "ugly" version of the printing, but you can get a feel for how good the full bleed box top looks!

      Were the "tons of photos" ever uploaded?

      Always been a fan of full bleed covers. This one especially will be like holding a painting.

      I like the full bleed cover.

      I'll be happy regardless, but I do think this is a better look.

      I think the only thing i notice is the the second m in Tammany seems to fade into the picture a bit making the title a little hard to read. That could also be in part due to being a photo. But it's not a huge issue either way and to change it would probably require changing the font/color which might be more work then it's worth.

      I may be in the minority, but I prefer the original box design. Either way, still really looking forward to this game!

      The borderless splash cover gives a real marquee look and feel to the game. While many games in this genre include such a border, here Boss Tweed appears menacing and imposing, and the immigrant workers appear to have movement behind the stalwart Tweed, whereas in the original box art the border almost appears to keep them docile and backgrounded. On a lighter note, I am happy to see that Boss Tweed's face has not changed. That I-need-to-take-a-dump (and I'll do it with a cigar) quality will mesh well with my many Euros. Boss, you may sit next to Caylus.

      The side panels have an excellent bookshelf/display quality. Personally, I have come to like the oversized Pandasaurus logos on the side panels though I was a bit wary at first. They frame the title well, and because the logo is so unique, it adds a novelty effect to the game. I think that many of us are used to a single logo to the side, but I don't see that working here as it offsets the already long title, which when relegated to one side, with a logo, say, to the right, does not have the same imposing effect as it has centered between the two logos. But I'm not sure everyone will like this effect. When you send out the tons o'pictures, will you send a view of the side panel?

      What is under the box? Is that the rulebook proof? If so, for consistency's sake, you might consider including Doug Eckhart's name in the right hand corner. Then again, it may simply be a copy of what the old box art looked like, which seems more likely in the case, but I didn't see anything in the post that suggested what it was.

      Thanks Tom!

      This was one of the things I wanted to do the most with the reprint.

      That is the work of Bryan Fischer. The artwork we had wasn't high enough resolution to make it happen, but we were able to track down a hi-res scan of the original Peter Dennis artwork so that we could get rid of the border without making the artwork blurry.

      minus the black border on the front is a definite WIN.
