So I keep seeing examples of people actually framing games or putting them up on the walls as real decorations. I've seen lots of people who have mentioned how pretty different boards are and that they are works of art but I wanted to find actual examples of art up on walls. These are what I found after about 40 minutes of searching the Geek. Its not much but I hope others would be willing to add what they know. I would love to steal ideas from people for my own house


(I would love someone to post a pic of something like a framed set of Carc tiles that I've heard people say that they have)

This one really intersted me. I thought this was a great example of what I wanted. I showed my wife and her first comment was "Were the heck do you think you'ed be putting that?" ah well maybe in the future. I just love the way he made it work with the 3D pieces. I imagine this costed a pretty decent amount to have mounted but with lots of extra copies of the orginal A&A floating around now it wouldn't be hard to get one made up.

This wall show real love of the game of Risk. Its just so cool that it makes up for it being Risk. So many versions and so well laid out. It just blows me away that someone would/could do this.

I like the simplicty of this one. The guy like the board so he put it in a frame on the wall. While I don't think I would put up something like this, I would perfer something with a little more action going on: pieces, dice, whatever something that actually give you a feel for the spirit of the game. Thats a bit odd sounding but I like.

Risk again. Same user as before, just thought I'ed break it up with Paths of Glory, no one wants to see Risk three time in a row. I do like how this one shows the change in something so simple as the cards over the years. I don't think most people would have thought about the cards, the board or the pieces maybe but the cards? Very creative and very informative. Great presentation as well. So cool.... even if it is risk

This game comes to mind. There are a number of similar games published by Theta games (cubicado, headquarter, etc) also fit the bill.

I've added this to another similar list, a Risk watercolor map.

this game comes to mind. The game is played on actual art, well a likeness of the original.
