Best Board Game Post of the Week #2

Best Boardgame Posts and I really enjoyed how our first post went. We are excited to keep this thing going! So on to week two, like we said last week the imagery and representation of board gaming are important. What better way to capture the beauty of analog gaming than to snap a photo of it? What makes a good shot and why does this matter? We want a photo that has a composition that draws in the viewer, broad underlying colors and contrasts to heighten the detail. We look for images that have that initial popping look. Once we have found it, we need detail to the shapes, colors, and balances in order to continue our interest. We want the little details that add structure to the shot. We want a photo that makes us forget what the subject even is so we can appreciate the contribution of the image itself. No distractions, visible punchlines, nice color, and most importantly, creative life through lighting. Why is this important? Aside from gameplay and functionality, board gaming is a visual hobby. We play with our eyes as much as our hands and brain. We enjoy the crisp artwork and we love a quality design.

We feel this shot creates a good representation of the game, Toc Toc Woodman. Keep in mind this title is a dexterity board game, so it could’ve been hard capturing the essence of the experience with just one shot. This in-game photo depicts the concept of the game as well as appreciates the components that make up Toc Toc Woodman. We really enjoy the way we see the bold presence of the game even though we have it against different types of browns. I feel it does a great job complimenting the different shades of brown together to create a nice tone in the wooden blocks. This definitely looks like a fun game! thanks Chris.
