Well, I thought that boxes would be placed horizontally and without text links to the right side. Only boxes, all in the same gray-blue, gray-brown palette. Also, I wanted to place these pictures to the background of every main table, but they have to be much lighter to allow the text be visible. It could be 3 large boxes in a row (with x-com 1-3) and in the second row there are smaller boxes with other games. No time at all to draw this, sorry! --ufo.mesh 10:33, 26 October 2010 (BST)

We can try several different styles and see what works best. But I think the horizontal one for the main three games and smaller icons for the spinoffs is a good idea for the individual main tables. We already have the links down the side, but a visual one at the top wouldn't be bad. -NKF 23:46, 26 October 2010 (BST)
I like it. I would like to see another version (just stick it below the current boxes I reckon) that has the boxes about a third smaller and is done over 3 columns instead. Taking a screen resolution of 1024x768 as a minimum (there are literally only 1-2% of folks who come here using less, and looking at the stats they're viewing on phones I reckon so the site is scaled down to fit anyway), you could safely design something that would fit in a table 816 pixels wide and it would display fine at that resolution and higher (just giving you an idea of minimum width, so each cell could be a minimum of 272 pixels wide, so your widest image in each column can be no larger than that).
