Colour Matching of Princess & Dragon 2.0
« on: April 22, 2016, 12:40:19 AM »
Damn, the only reason I was happy to buy Crc II is that they would finally be able to print matching green grass on all new expansions ...

Looks like I was wrong :(

Hold on - the city brown in CII P&D doesn't match the city brown in CII? That's ridiculous. Utterly ridiculous. CII is their opportunity to fix silly problems like this. You'd think if they were going to remake all of their old games they would do it properly.

Bah.
Look to the north. Keep looking. There's nothing coming from the south.

Guys, only the backs of the tiles matter. Have you learned nothing?  >:D

Just kidding of course, it's inexcusable.

On the positive side, this is the first time I've seen new P&D artwork (being a non-CarcII person). I think the dragon icon, the princess icon, the portal and the volcanoes are all improvements over the original. But those green/brown colours ... i just can't.

I might split this topic -  I'm not a fan of the new magic portals - they disappear into the tile.  I'm not sure that cloister is cloistery enough either.  Check out the Volcano though, that looks brilliant (y)

Me neither.. And just because of this, I'm not even tempted to buy 2.0, even if there will appear really cool new expansions to the game that won't be released in the old artwork. Big letdown  :(n) :(n) :(n)

Woah! I thought that was a cathedral! Definitely not cloistery enough.

Interesting that they didn't take the opportunity to change the appearance (but not the functionality) of this tile to bring it in line with the iOS version - that is, with the cloister still on the tile but outside the city.

Probably a good idea, it looks like that's where this is going! The dragon looks great, as does the volcano. The princess is good too. she looks far more princessy. The magic portal looks very non-descript. The arrows are weird, too. Do we need reminding of what it does? I didn't even spot the cloister until I saw the post. Non cloistery enough. Not cloistery enough at all.

I always thought the old portals looked a bit like smaller volcanoes (weird, I know). That's why I said I like these better.

Edit: Don't like the arrows. But I like the portal itself.

I  love the dragon icon and the volcano.   I like the well, but I hate that it is surrounded by grass.  The magic portal looks like a cave.
I was wondering why there was a Cathedral tile on P&D, but I see I wasn't the only one to make that mistake. 

After looking at the new art, I can't put my finger on why I hate the grass and the roads so much.  The old art somehow got it right.   I will say that the little houses in the cities with the smoke coming from them are really nice looking.

I like the fields and roads, and I think the extra touches like small cottages, smoking chimneys and other landscape features are beautiful. I dislike the pennants, with their larger size and their white glow; the blue towers, obviously; and the cloisters, which don't look cloister enough. They blend into the landscape too much, which was probably the intention, but it doesn't work in a board game if you can't recognise scorable features.
