Let’s talk about graphic design this week. How important is the actual look of a game and its pieces to you? If a game is solid, do you forgive it cheap components and shoddy art? If a game is just “OK”, but has an amazing look and high quality components, will you be more willing to play it again?

I’m a huge fan of a good looking game, but I’m usually willing to look at mechanics and play over how good something looks. That’s not to say that if a game looks like complete butt that I won’t even give it a second glance.
