I got an interesting Geekmail yesterday from BGG user Chad DeShon about a 2012 Board Game weekly desk calendar that he’s been putting together. It looks really cool, and best of all, he’s using three of my pictures in the project!
Basically, it’s a weekly calendar with one page per week of 2012, each featuring a gorgeous image of some boardgame or other. The calendar
sort of folds back to sit upright on your desk (see edit below), and it seems to be both useful and attractive from the samples he’s posted. He’s been writing a blog on BGG about the whole process, which I just caught up on and found to be very interesting and full of information about what you’d be getting. He also has an online storefront where you can order calendars for just $14 plus $2.50 for shipping.
Here you can see the style and then a sample page from the calendar
Edit: Chad sent me another message last night clarifying some details, so here’s what he said about the format of the calendar: “I saw that you included some of the sample images from my first blog post. That is great. However I want to be clear that the design as changed a bit since then. The calendar no longer has the cardboard cover. However, it is now larger and the images will go all the way to the edge of the page. I think new design is better, but I don’t want you to think I did a bait-and-switch.”
But either way, I just ordered two copies for myself, and I wanted to pass this on to all of y’all either as a gift idea for another boardgamer in your life or (like me) just to have such a cool little treat for yourself.
