New showcase pages

The Robber
Mmmm… pretty macro photos.

I’ve now added showcases for the pips as well as the robber

I think this is the first time I’ve talked about the robber design. I wanted something that was abstract and intuitive. The anthropomorphic robber didn’t really say “classy” to me. And the omission of a “7” on the board is one of those head scratchers when you play your first game of Settlers. It made sense to explicitly have the “7” on the robber. But there’s no way the robber could be confused for a pip because the 7 is bigger than the other numbers, the dice rolls go all the way around the ring, and there are cut-out areas.

Let me know what you think!
