Best Board Game Post of the Week #4

Best Boardgame Posts and I really enjoyed how our first post went. We are excited to keep this thing going! So on to week four, 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.

Today’s board game post of the week is taken by @boardgamergirl.

Boardgamergirl has an eye for great photo taking and this one for sure does a great job capturing Tiny Epic Kingdoms Heroes Call. I just love how the characters stand out. Edges are nice and bold, colors are very vibrant, the set up almost recreates a photoshop collaboration of some of the best images from the game. I personally haven’t tried this title out, but I am now very curious about gameplay. I think the compass in the middle is neat and is a nice focal point in the image. It’s simplicity makes it easier for our eyes to wander around the center point and appreciate the artwork. Great job BoardGamerGirl!
