I was asked to help prepare a Trivia Board layout customized for Geocaching for this years coming Texas Challenge.
Attached is the present draft for the board. The radial silver metallic background is/was my attempt to keep away from an expensive(black ink) background and still have great contrast with the colored playing areas. I am approaching a week since I have done this and now am not sure if it is more hypnotic and not distracting from the board play itself.
So I am asking myself and you, should I go for a grey colored, textured type of background that is all one type of color. When you see the printed version, it almost seems as if each square is floating above the surface. What do you think?
