This months theme is Toys and Games. Game board pieces, miniatures, small toys up close, small toys made to look BIG, chess piece(s), set of dice, stack of poker chips, toy soldiers... These days most games are electronic, can you say “Angry Birds”, but not all. These small pieces, sometimes designed with great detail and style, are the subject’s of this months contest.
