Here are some variations on my original cover design (Located Here).

Very nice, but you should use an apostrophe instead of a left single quotation mark in "Hold'em". Also, to my knowledge, there shouldn't be any space in "Hold'em", even though 2+2 seems to think that there should be.

Also, shouldn't it really be "Sit'n'Go" instead of "Sit 'n Go"? I know Mason wrote "Sit 'n Go," but I think he's wrong.

2nd one is the best graphic imo, but all the cards around the edge make it look too busy and cluttered. Might be cool if the cards in the center weren't opaqued and the ones on the edges were, I dunno. Text layout looks the nicest on the first one though. Oh, and you forgot the revolver!

Deaner's , Obliky's and Naggo's IMHO are the front runners.

Nearly died laughing at Greg Nice's. "getting better at flopping sets" lol

Thanks for the feedback everyone....I made a few revisions on the title and author name. Some of the fonts look jagged here but it's just because it's scaled down. I've used these fonts before and they print clean.

heres a link to the original

This is my first draft and can be modified any way needed. I wanted to have a basics/101 school type theme while staying with the 2+2 traditional look.

OK, here's my crack at it. One version of the cover:

Here's another cover version with a simpler background:

And here's a try at a back cover:

My wife and I were in disagreement about the cover style. I said it should look something like the other 2+2 books, for uniformity sake. She says no, so she's going to do her own submission! [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Mason,
Can we get some critiques here? What ones have caught your eye? Any out there that are good but need a little tweaking?
