Posted By: Jonathan WaltonI've spent the last three days teaching myself to hack 16-bit art together from SNES/Gameboy Advance graphics. Check out my third attempt, below. I have no idea why folks haven't mined this artstyle/scene for RPG art before, what with Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc. Are there examples that I've missed?
 It's mentioned three times in the 2008 annual report, each time like this:"Our games and puzzles category includes several well known brands, including MILTON BRADLEY,PARKER BROTHERS, TRIVIAL PURSUIT, CRANIUM, AVALON HILL and WIZARDS OF THE COAST.These brand portfolios consist of a broad assortment of games for children, tweens, families and adults. Coregame brands include MONOPOLY, BATTLESHIP, GAME OF LIFE, SCRABBLE, CHUTES ANDLADDERS, CANDY LAND, EVERYTHING BY VINCENT BAKER, TROUBLE, MOUSETRAP, OPERATION, HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS, CONNECT FOUR, TWISTER, YAHTZEE, CRANIUM, JENGA, THE SHAB AL-HIRI ROACH, SIMON, THE FORGE, CLUE, SORRY!, RISK, BOGGLE, TRIVIAL PURSUIT and GUESS WHO?, as well as a line of puzzles for children and adults, including the BIG BEN and CROXLEY lines of puzzles. WIZARDS OF THE COAST offers trading card and role-playing games, including MAGIC: THE GATHERING and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS. We seek to keep our core brands relevant through sustained marketing programs as well as by offering consumers new ways to experience these brands."So it is not remotely a big deal to Hasbro.
