Board-game Design- The Great Coin Caper

Slowly but surely, the plan is to add more and more history about some of the more interesting projects that have made their way through this studio over the past couple years- in what the Jones Studio scientists refer to as the "Pre-Larryial Blog Era".   Many a fun and joyous game board has been designed and illustrated here over the years and today we'll take a look at that momentous educational phenomena known as The Great Coin Caper- A Dewey Whodunit Game-  (Highsmith).   Attached are some of the original sketches that still remain as well as the finished art.  And now ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... some stuff I drew...
