My latest game: Big*Bang, a simple abstract about the first minutes of the Universe
My best-rated game: Tetrarchia, about the tetrarchy that saved Rome
[Disclamer: I have posted a similar thread in TransAmerica, for users not owning/knowing both games.]
We have been enjoying TransEuropa (with the Vexation expansion, of course) as a gateway game with our friends, and are now trying TransAmerica to have the same experience but with a new board. However, the only issue I found for TE is there for TA too: the cards are tiny!
In both games the small size makes the purpose of the illustrations fail: in TA you want to "see" right away where the city is, in TE you want to appreciate a representative monument of this city. I thought the game would be much better with bigger cards, and I have thus scanned them, printed larger, and laminated:
I like the result a lot, and thought that others may find the work I did useful and that I could upload the PDF I built. But I'm almost sure such a file would be rejected due to copyright issues.
Do you think this file should be uploaded? It is not just a scan, it is based on a scan but it is a significant improvement over the existing components, and as such I think it should find its place here...
EDIT: Indeed what made me think about this was the picture showing the Fly Europe version of the game:

I'd say no, at least without permission from the copyright owner (and I'm surprised if you get that permission).
I suppose this is something people should do themselves based on your idea, if they want to.
