comment Board game design: Which design is clearest to indicate failure?
@HostileFork interesting - I don't know anyone who has tested a prototype myself. I'll probably pitch it to our monthly board game group as a start to see what they think and get their feedback. I probably need to read some more about the prototyping stages.

comment Board game design: Which design is clearest to indicate failure?
@Lyrion - sorry, you just made me realize my example is quite bad. The second image example illustrates something not present on the first. The first requires a Red 6 then Green 5 then a blue roll. The other image illustrates how an AND works, you need a Red 6 AND Green 5 otherwise a trash can.

Thanks for your answer Dan, there is a theme which I will take into account - but I didn't feel it was overly important in still conveying the clear message. But I'll have a re-think.

Thanks for your answer - testing it is the plan. I was just hoping to have something decent to start with so they'd get the concept easily. The game itself will be more complex - and I'm purely after trying to get the visual for the understanding, rather than how it looks.

comment Why do websites use a graphic instead of the HTML entity `≡` for the menu icon?
@NiettheDarkAbsol: That's a really nice effect :)

comment Which way do arrows point on a tabbed web page?
I completely agree that Option B looks odd. Option A I think is actually really nice and visual.

comment How to tell a user that a search is being performed when they stop typing
@JeremieMiserez: True - in which case a threshold to show the progress wheel seems appropriate. If the search is that fast anyway then no additional visual cue should be required.
