    A big thank you to 'Action' for submitting two variations of two sets - all excellent.

    Check out 'New Dimension' and 'Red Menace'. On a large board, both look absolutely stunning. Amazing work.

    New Dimensions raised looks good, can't beat good old Newspaper though

    Russ - can you publish some stats on who uses what set? (edit- in terms of numbers, not individual users!)

    A nice graph would be nice, and maybe a Pie chart.

    Very nice indeed! It's been a while since I've looked at all the choices. There are quite a few now. I did not realize there were that many.

    The designers have all done quite well. Congrats.

    Yes, I intend to do this - it will help raise awareness about what is available to people too. (See post above)

    Alpha's great for me - an old lady with bad eyesight and a requirement for a small board - because I can tell the difference between a pawn and a bishop
