Hello! While I’m testing out the rules for the MLB, I’m also trying out various graphical ideas for team name tokens. I imagine that it would help the thematic feel of historic teams.
I’m trying out hexagonal laser cut tiles and illustrating them with a ballpark display in mind… colors and images against a field of black. (These are hexagonal to differentiate themselves from the square Glove tiles for easy sorting, and small to be inexpensive to the consumer.)
The players would take these team name tokens and place them at the top of the RallyBird Baseball Board Game to the left and right of the Inning spaces. Each token would have two sides, red and blue, visitor and home. This of course harmonizes with the standard RallyBird Baseball Board Game.
This is not final. I don’t know about the distribution of the spaces between words and images, for example… I won’t really know what I think of this concept or the graphics until I order a physical prototype and try it out. But right now I think I had a little “brainwave” when I thought of adding the token images like player profiles in the real ballpark experience. Baseball tells a story.
