Character Design Challenge #342 – Board Are We?

Snakes and Ladders.

Well since we have given chess a try, perhaps it is time to up our game…so to speak.

Your challenge this week is to design a boardgame. Your entry should include the board itself. the game logo, and at least one of the game pieces.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackDeviantArt, or whatever - Please do not use Photobucket);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). *

This contest will close on Sunday, October 22nd at 9:00am Eastern.

    Be the first to collect:
    -8 Body cards (2 arms, 1 head, 2 hands, 1 torso, 2 legs)
    -4 Clothing cards (1 hat, 1 top, 1 legwear, 1 shoes)
    -2 Item cards
    -& 1 Background card!

    Trade with your opponents’ to get the cards you need!

    Use CDC cards to force other players to use their cards to make the pictured characters before they can complete their own!

    Land on the “Start!” square to pick a Body, Clothing, Item, or Background card out of the discard pile from previously-played CDCs!
