Changing banner by per forum

I run a gaming portal. I'd like to be able to customise the forum banner depending on the area the user is browsing. Example: (game 1 banner) (game 2 banner)
Both currently reside in the webroot directory, i.e., same install files / database etc

On the other hand, would it be possible to create seperate forum installs with the same database? (I want to share user dbs etc). -> <webroot>/game1 -> <webroot>/game2

Or is there a much easier solution I just dont know about?

a) You can use an if conditional in the header template to change the banner according to the forum.

b) You will need a license for each install... this might help if you tried parking one domain on top of the other. Not sure how that would work if they are subdomains.
