• Rare Renaissance Game Boards from 1993/1994. Game Boards were created in two sizes, 42 inch square and 24-30 inch square.

• Only 2 boards were created at 42 inch square. One in Red and one in Blue.

• The red board (pictured here) was sold at a silent auction in 1993/1994 at the Hotel Vancouver for $1000. Items from other artist were sold at this auction, including a Sam Black painting.

• Since we have no prior sales history, values of the Game Board series is unknown. In 2009, the owner of the Red Board turned down an offer of $5000.

• From the Sid Dickens blog, you can see one of the smaller game boards (24-30 inch square) in the photo http://siddickens.com/blog/2010/04/from-the-archives/

I was searching without luck to find info on my - what I termed a screen - but after scrutinizing the back found it was signed a "Game Board Series #2" accompanied by a signature that isn't Sid Dickens - although I have the original tag on it saying 'Sid Dickens Cyphers'. It's the smaller size (17.75" x 17.25" open) and looks like the one cirlcled in red pictured beside the 'Sid Dickens Blog...'. but on close inspection, the outer squares are placed in a different order. In following that link, it appears to be out of date so I'm still a bit in the dark. Does someone have info on it? I bought it around 1993-95.

You're correct to refer to it as a screen. It is a 3 sectional with hinges. There are a number of triptychs, mostly done in renaissance themes, yours is the gameboard theme. What is the signature?

Now that I look at the pic - it could say Sid Dickens. It's a bit of a scrawl.
