Hi. For me, your page

Hi. For me, your page redirects to a 'secure' page (https) and it produces a warning that your page does not verify as being secure, and says I should not go there.

I do get directed to the HTTPS version, but no warning of anything fishy. Site is legit - check it out.

My 2 cents

Congratulations on getting this far! I really do like the look and feel of the site. :)

Having said that (sorry) I find it harder to use than Tabletopia. My major issue is having to create the board tile by tile. Unfortunately, the printer I use for physical copies of my games requires a full piece of art to print a board and it would be nice to use that art to create a board in GameStructor. I may be missing something, I didn't dig too deep.

The amount of work you have done so far, and the results, are really impressive though. So kudos to you!

I'm looking forward to seeing how development progresses!

Next Board Update

Thanks for the feedback. I will prioritize the next board updates to allow full piece art in conjunction with transparent tiles.
