Kickstart This: “Name that Game” Posters by Mark Gonyea

Mark Gonyea recently kickstarted the The Mythical Alphabet and Cryptozoology Icon Posters, which were pretty cool. Now, he’s got a new poster project, one based around some of his favorite boardgames.

The games featured in these minimalist posters are Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, Lords of Waterdeep, Puerto Rico, and Pandemic.

My first Euro style game was Settlers of Catan. From there on I was completely hooked! There are so many games in regular rotation for game nights, Catan, Ticket to Ride, Lords of Waterdeep (my newest go to game), and so many more!

These posters are inspired by some of my absolute favorite games. As a graphic artist, I really loved the challenge of taking a wonderfully complex strategy game and distilling it down to an extremely simple, but still recognizable design.

I hope you’ll help me create these 5 strategy board game posters. Each poster will be 18×24 and printed on at least 100 lb. matte paper. Rolled, labeled as fragile, and shipped in a sturdy tube. The dollars pledged will go directly to the production of the posters, supplies (tubes & labels), and cost of shipping rewards.

These look pretty stunning, and they’d be right at home hanging on the wall of someone’s game room. He’s looking to raise $2,800 in the next 18 days. a $20 pledge gets you a 18×24 poster.
