Yes, I would like to see bigger pictures too. Specifically of the rooms because we've seen the weapons and the suspect cards are boring.


Oh yes and those motives! Can't forget those motive cards. :D

Sure caucums, I will post bigger picture's of everything when I have the Ship's Log and Notepads printed out... which should only be a few days away now. After that... I only have to finish the board... and the game will be ready to play :D

Alright... here are those pictures I promised. The first one is of all the pieces I have thus far together. The wooden case is closed, but the board will eventually be placed right behind the glass... so the pieces won't be visible like this inside. I only keep 3 pens in the game because I'll be lucky if I ever get to use all 3 to begin with :P Also, as you can see, I bought a very small wooden die. It is very light, and therefore will not scratch up the glass when it is rolled.

The second picture shows a closeup of some of the cards, the notepads and the ship's log. I only printed out 20 notepads, but I think that I will later copy them so that so much ink isn't wasted. So, eventually... after 30 games or so, they'll be black and white.

The third picture shows an even bigger closeup of all of the cards.

Thank you. I decided to change some things last minute. For instance... the notepads were originally supposed to look like Airship Tickets. But those would have been much too small. Since the notepads are no longer very small, I won't be able to use passport holders as notepad holders. I'll have to go out and find something else. I also need to get a clipboard for the ship's log and finish the board.

3 things left on the list. Not too much longer now! :D

Well... the board is finished :D

All I have to do now is have it developed and put it into the box. As far as supplies go... I just need some notepad holders... and the game will be ready to go :D

I will post up-close pictures of the board once it's set in the glass.

Why is there a door on the side of the ship? So people can jump out?! I don't think so, somehow!

Beautiful! Want to sell a copy?
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?

The door is there because that's how the people get on and off the ship when it's docked :P

And I would definitely consider the idea of making another one for sale, but the supplies alone cost me $78 to make this one, and I don't have the notepad holders yet.

Then again, certain things (Like the paper cutter and corner trimmer) wouldn't have to be re-bought. As for cardstock, I bought enough to last me a lifetime.

And to make it cheaper, I could send it without pens and notepad holders. Not like that would make a big difference, but I'm sure it would add up to $15 or $20, depending on what kind of holders I decide to buy.

Let me count up how much money it would cost to make another one, and i'll let you guys know. If you're still interested, then I'll fire up the printer :D
