I've noticed a recent trend towards repackaging old games with new "girly" designs. That, and Jason Freer (Crim)'s recent statement "My girlfriend Anye enjoys kicking the crap out of my Orcs and Goblins with her very girly painted Dwarf army" in the review "Warhammer Up Close - Pros and Cons," have got me to thinking about the wider application of this concept.

I submit for your perusal a few real-world examples I've spotted, and would like to see any more that you know of.

Also, I humbly request any of those amongst us with the skills and inclination to please Photoshop together, oh, I don't know... a repackaging of Doom? Advanced Squad Leader? Warhammer itself? El Grande? Machiavelli? Power Grid? Car Wars? 1830? Tide of Iron? You get the idea. Let your imaginations run wild...

But above all... Think pink!

Little did I know when I put this list together last month, that pdclose had beat me out by a good two years! Here's her most fabulous redesign...



...which I discovered a few days ago on The Hater Send up of the Pink Ouija board thread.
