Thanks to the $35k stretch goal, we are definitely producing a double-sided game board. One side will have art with all of the various identifying text overlayed on top of it. The other side will remove those labels for players who don’t need them, and it will replace the key with outlines for placing the Arboriculture expansion cards on the board.
With the debut of the beautiful new art from Beth Sobel for the vineyard mats (see below) contrasting with the style of the board artist, David Montgomery, we had an idea: What if the art on the back of the board was in Beth’s style? It would look exactly like the original board (all of the actions would be in the exact same location so as to not confuse players), but done by Beth in her unique style. The labels would be removed from Beth’s side to stay consistent with the $35k stretch goal.
What do you think? This will cost extra, but it’s economically feasible if we make it the new $55k stretch goal (and reach that goal).
