What is needed is a meaningful cover for a controversial strategy board game about mining. Place the play action of the game is the state of Saxony in Germany or the Ore Mountain in which the mining industry has a long tradition.
With rising commodity prices, get old deposits back into the visor. Especially international companies, their sense of responsibility towards a region has its limits, are interested in the raw materials.
Therefore, to be visible on the cover of a kind scenery which reflects the theme with his dark side and at the same time gives an idea of the Tycoon character of the players. Content can thus landscape, typical mining buildings, machines, vehicles, heaps, rivers (which are contaminated), protesters, police, miners, etc. are mapped, and cracks that it is primarily about big money (commodity price curves, bribery, banking etc.). The imagination had no limits.
In the upper half of the cover is centrally Berggeschrey written are either in a old german font or a font in the milieu of the subject are good resist (rough, tough, traditional), compare to board games like "Namibia" and “Glück Auf” on. The font of the movie "Iron Sky" would be another example. But perhaps you have better ideas. Of the games mentioned here, my desired design should naturally differ significantly, due to the already mentioned region and the timeliness of the topic subscription.
It is expected no complex "glossy" design, I place more value on the thematic content. Have fun.
