The Dark Oval of Fate, a decorative evolution to the #RallyBird #Baseball #BoardGame, Symbolizing the Role of #Decisions pressing against the Roll of #Dice (plus #Heidegger’s Influence)

When Martin Heidegger raised the issue of Being, and Being-There (“Dasein”), I suspect he suffered a small chill, knowing  the influence he would have on baseball board game design. I think he was trying to get us to be aware that we poor souls find ourselves thrust in a world as it is. What follows (briefly) is our Concern. Without our sense of time, we could have no concern. Here I am pressed for time, and therefore I am Concerned about the graphic look of this baseball board game I’m trying to lift up into its own Being-in-the-World.

As you can see, I’ve added the Dark Oval of Fate to the box cover. There’s a shadow under every pair of dice. How satisfying it is to know this, face this and make a decision! The thrust pierces through the veil, or, perhaps, we bend our épée on a fence post, not our opponent, while a beautiful woman in a ruffled outfit watches. I have ordered a prototype. Only you, dear reader, know what this graphical change symbolizes. May it lighten your Concern!

Please note, as a favor to you I did not use any semicolons in this post. O, how I wanted to!

New Box Art is Happening In #RallyBird #Baseball Land (plus Dramatic Myth of Sisyphus Reference)

In moments of pause, saith Camus, after Sisyphus has pushed his rock to the top of the hill, and it tumbles down again, he trudges down after it; and in that moment, before pushing it back up again, Sisyphus has his moment of triumph.


Things are happening in R-B-B-B-Land! Stay (trudge) tuned (trudge)!

I, and my massive shoulders, do thank you.


PS. I offer my apologies for using a semicolon.
