Prototypes vs. Published Games


Just saw this cool thread on boardgamegeek where they showed pictures of prototypes next to pictures of the final published game.  We’ve done that here on this site – comparing Belfort’s prototype to some of the final art that we’ve been seeing – and it’s amazing to see the differences!  Check out the list here to see the humble beginnings of some of your favourite board games.  Here’s one example of the prototype for Pandemic and then the final version by Josh Cappel (the artist who’s doing the art for Belfort!).
