Project description

The goal is to design a game board.

The theme is Viking world.The board itself represents a battlefield for fierce (but friendly) vikings.

The design should remain simple. It could be cartoonish but not necessarily for children.


Technical requirements (mandatory to implement in your design to be considered) :
  • Mandatory #1 : The board is composed of 3x3 tiles. Each tile is composed of 4x4 squares.
  • Mandatory #2Each squares has coordinates (abscissa and ordinate - 1/1, 1/2... 12/11, 12/12) that must be easy to visualize on the board.
  • Mandatory #3Each squares must be 3cm x 3cm (1.2 inchesx1.2 inches).
  • Mandatory #4Font to use is Norse, available for free on Dafont
  • Mandatory #5 : The image should be in vector format or with printable quality 

A file is attached to illustrate the expected layout.


Design hints / ideas (those are only possible suggestions, not mandatory at all. They can be implemented all together, only one, or not at all) :
  • Optional #1 : The tiles could be simple stone block (a bit similar to "Kumo" board in the center)
  • Optional #2 : Each tile could be associated with one of each viking homeworlds

Thanks in advance for those who wish to participate!

    Hi !
    please take a look at entries #7 , #8 , #9 , #10 and #11
    I hope is what you are looking for.
    Please, if you you like my designs... and you would like to have any change (of color or anything else) let me know.
    Thank you, Sincerely , Cezar - @ArtAct
  • Here I have attached the 2 and changed the background from brown to the matching color in the center squares. If you like any of these designs I we would need to come up with a color scheme for the rest of the 9 realms. This is as far as I have been able to get. It took a lot of work to come up with these examples. #6
  • I have also done a sample of the Dark Elves. The back ground is brown in both of these. #5
  • Here I am adding a little extra to the middle. An additional square that the colors can be changed depending on the realm you are in. #4
  • In this design, the center blocks have less shading on the edges making it a little squarer and a little cleaner #3
  • I'm going to be submitting a few ideas. Take a look and let me know if there is an option you like. Thanks #1
  • sir, can u tell me about where the vectors should be placed ? thanks in advance....
    • @Gana_art Hi, I'm not sure to understand. There is no specific place. The format of the image should be printable, hence vector (SVG for instance) or high resolution.
