    Alright, people, time to show us what you've got! Mike has been working on this for quite some time, because he has, in the past, received many questions about when and how fans can create and submit board ideas beyond the merely general theme suggestions. Below you'll find links to graphs you can access and print, letting you design your own board ideas in a manner similar to the way Mike does his. I'm sure results will be a bit...sketchy at first (pun intended), but we have every confidence in the brilliance and creativity of our fans.


    Here's an example from Mike.


    A template to get you started.


    Smaller boxes for greater detail.

    So get started! We look forward to seeing some of your ideas!

    Aliright, I'll try to make an interesting one!

    Argh! I'm having a hard time with doing this! I may not be able to make one at this rate!

            Well...1rst of all, I don't have paint (something that i'm used to) so I down loaded Gimp 2.0. I don't know how to use it though. 2nd of all, My drawing skills aren't that good. Last but not least, I can't think of any good ideas for a board. Sorry I can't give any ideas, but ideas that don't involve drawing I'll be glad to help with!

              You can print the template out and just color it with colored pencils. It's easy!

              Then, you just scan it in...

                It's actually tougher than it looks. My picture (three posts up) almost took two hours to make.

                      hmmm, maybe it's cause mine was "graphically improved" that it took longer.

                          Where is it? Did you post it? *looks for the post* nope. Please post it, I want to see it.

                            I don't have pictures, but I do have three ideas for board packs:

                            1. Classic Video Games: I got this idea from the Tetris and Blinky boards in DX-Ball and the fact that this whole game is based on the Breakout concept. It would be really cool to have an entire board pack like this--Dig Dig, Donkey Kong, Tempest, Centipede, Frogger, Space Invaders, etc.

                            2. Sports Logos: Football helmets, hockey shirts, basketball shirts, and baseball caps or shirts all in the right colors for each team and with the team's logo on it. There could probably be a separate board pack for each sport, and it would probably be easier to stick with pro teams because there are way less of them than there are college teams, unless you really want to go all out.

                            3. Flags of the World: This idea also came from DX-Ball--the American flag board. The title should be self-explanatory.

                            The only bad part about the first two is that you may need to get permission to use the video games and sports logos because they are most likely copyrighted.

                              It's not that great. It's a great concept, but it's only version 1.0.

                              I'll post it after I scan it in later today.
