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?

It does look awesome. Much thanks for taking this on.  O0 

The corner "logos" and font seem awkward.
The redish border around the geologo and yellow border around the text don't seem to jive well.

Can you try a different font and color scheme for those bits?

You will have to answer all the questions without error. Then and only then would you be able to get the Zen version... ;)

GeoTrivia is an idea Keely and I hashed out together to help solve the issue of getting folks from different regions to sit down together and mingle. Keely probably won't care but I'm not sure I like the idea of having logos on it.

Then I think it should have HGCS on it somewhere.  Subliminally of course. :coolsmiley:

I like the funky "radial silver metallic background" but would do something different in the inner circle where it gets dizzying.

 

I agree on no logos.

 

Question.... how is this going to be printed??

 

oh, and by the way, I love it!  both the idea and questions that Keely came up with last year and the new board.  Totally awesome dude.  Double rainbow.

Just Keely gave me an actual Trivia Board, my plan was to print the image and glue on top of the original board.  Some concern on how will that will hold but I guess it depends on the type of glue used.  I will printing onto regular bond paper the same size as the board.

Backgrounds are fully optional. I could make a PDF with several versions of the board with different colors.  Did NOT think of it until now.  Holidays!  mess up the thought process....

Will have anew multi-version PDF this weekend.  Thanks for the suggestions I think they will turn the doubts away once incorporated. :coolsmiley:

I love symmetry; so I think a cartoon rendition of a GPSr in the center would be nice  :angel:

If you're concerned about it adhering, I think Modge Podge brushed on top of your finished product will make a glossy, finished look.

Will we want more than one ?  I was thinking it would work pretty well on foam core board.

 

For application like that, I'm a fan of 3M's Super 77 spay adhesive.  Good stuff!    

 

Great work for sure.

So, it is multipurpose with a veterinary application?   :stirpot:   (I couldn't resist.)

just make sure you have the paper exactly where you want it first if you use super 77.  one shot is all you get.
