looking at the BGG thread and knowing this is basically a straight reprint, we know one dimension and can divine the others

Old pocket box measurements:
depth .8 inches
width 4.25 inches
length 7.25 inches

So the only change should be the depth:
depth 1.25 inches

Well, they'd still be in ziplocs inside the pocketbox for organization. I'm really looking forward to the depth; my go-to G.E.V. box is bursting.

Good news about the counters. That has me inclined to go in on this Kickstarter.

NOTE: Stretch goal, when it comes to die-cut counters. Only if that stretch goal is met will the counters be available as die-cut pieces. At launch, all of the counters are the traditional "cuts-em-yaself" classics.

That's a very, very good SG, though. :-)

No worries, I didn't think the OGRES would fit. The video cassette boxes of Deluxe OGRE and Deluxe GEV were nice to haul around the smaller stuff in and easy to store/stack. I'd like to be able to do the same for my current OGRE minis with the Pocket Boxes. At least a few for easy army transport. I don't think I have the money to buy enough PBs for the number of minis I currently have! lol

In in for ten games and 4 pocket boxes. I really hope we make 75K and get Necromancer (which I somehow missed way back when).

You probably came in right when it was dying out.
