    I made some boards that I might submit to that player contest. Comments appreciated.

    The idea is that the upper half is very good for wizards, but all the victory squares are on the bottom half. The wizard can stand behind the water and hit the middle victory square, but not the other two.

    Those patches of ice is difficult terrain. I dunno if that is obvious or not.

    There's a small risk of stalemate on the first board as melee characters might not be able to cover the ground and return in one turn. Otherwise I love boards like this, and all three of them look very cool.

    I don't think it's obvious enough, maybe you can add some doodad clutter.

    Bones and Gold is too dwarf friendly.
    But the rest, even though they are a bit too big and most dont have enough cover look good.

    The middle victory point is a pretty safe spot for a warrior. The other two less so.

    A second version of Bones and Gold that is less friendly to dwarfs:

    A second version of Strange Architecture. Smaller, the recomended 13x13 tiles.

    For what it's worth we try to avoid formations like this in all official boards:

    Do you mean were players can move through very narrow gaps?

    Yep! Not that everything in the game makes sense or is realistic, but that's a convention we've upheld for realism reasons (and because it's nonintuitive to move through those gaps). Basically one rule of thumb on the board is you can never cross a thick black line, and we avoid publishing boards that let players break that rule.

    A worthy 110.000th forum post.
     
  13. I like the Ruins in the Jungle one.

    Thanks. I did a new version of Ruins in the Jungle. The point is that the victory squares are different.

    The middle one is supposed to be sheltered. I made it more so, cutting off some squares on the side that could target it.

    The lower victory square is supposed to vulnerable. I made it more so by making the pond bigger.

    The jungle one is really, really good. Great work.

    Way too easy for dwarf warriors.

    You're probably right, but changing it would ruin the whole point of the board.
