agreed - looking at a couple of box photos it seems that they used overprinting and colors didn't line up correctly with each pass, so they probably left white taller and overprinted black. However it's clear looking at the manual pages of the same boxes that they intended both b&w to be the same size. I'll follow that...

...and QL Fictionary is here. Great source images Ralf! I'm playing a bit with the background colours and then make a collection with aligned attributes and sizes.

Touch 'n' Go seems to be less complex than Reversi and Bounder (I'll probably have to recreate the artwork manually for these)

BTW - all packages now have the same grey background colour

It would be wonderful if all of these were now freeware....

QL Bounder was always a little different and challenging!
