Just wanted to add a link to a page showing my lastest creation that I am giving to my brother this weekend. It has been very fun creating this game. Sure doesn't look like the first version of it! I used an old boardgame which I painted the box, attached labels, and glued my new boardface on top of the existing board. Worked great. The card sleeves are nice for holding the cards while protecting them. Anyone else want to share pictures of their creations?

Wow ... looks very nice.

As long as you're inviting, I'll just point to a couple pages on my website (some of the folks here have already seen these):

Keeps & Moats Chess: http://www.mwgames.com/knm_board.htm
Castle Danger: http://www.mwgames.com/cd_tt.htm (and the actual board looks a bit different now -- different graphics & no white border around it ... hopefully I'll have new pictures up sometime)

Geez, I wish my brother would get his act together!

Props Prophx. Very professional looking game. I'm wondering what printing methods and graphics design programs you used. Also, the card labels look like they have a great aged or grainy look. Was this simply done design software-side, or did you use a special paper?

Thanks! The board was printed on I guess you would call a plotter here at work. I attached it to the existing board using a spray adhesive (can't get any easier than that!) The cards are just printed on standard paper and placed in card sleeves that I bought at Meijer for $3 for 60 of them. They have various colors... gold, blue, purple, black, silver. I used Word to create the cards using the Drawing tools since it prints out smooth lines and there are plenty of symbols to choose from. The board was created completely from scratch using PhotoImpact 6 (A great $49 graphics tool!). The wood pawns, tokens, and die were purchased from a local hobby shop. It has really been an enjoyable experience creating this game. I'm excited for the next game I am working on right now.
