Photographs of early Horseplay boards

« Horseplay prototype photos »

Notes:
Rather than scan negatives from 1989 I’ve set the game up using the original photographs and snapped them with my Nikon. May add a few more shots another day.

I’ll also re-do many of the designs and pictures with Photoshop or something.
