If I can get a larger board...I will most definitely subscribe!
You may be rather surprised to hear that it is being built to look exactly like the existing board. If everyone continues to use the new board and thinks it is just the same but with a drag and drop option (+ few other tricks), then I will call it a success.
You build these things with one eye on the future, and changing how the board looks will then go on to become a simpler task. If we went on to embrace HTML5 fully, for example, then we could swap in a new interface (with 3d, for example, we know everyone loves that....right?
Regarding your question about piece size, we can’t use scalable boards right now, but we could support fixed size bigger boards. This might not be available for all sets though, or only with lower quality graphics for the pieces. If anyone has preferences here, let us know.
