Default Pocket Box Games - January 30

We've been slowly working to bring back Pocket Box games and can now report that the Kickstarter project will go live on January 30. Hope to see you there!

Will empty pocket boxes be available as add-ons? Having the deeper boxes would be really nice for transferring some of the older content from existing games

In Kickstarter, yes. Empty Pocket Boxes will be an add-on option.

Awesome! I can't wait to get some new copies of old favorites along with some new PBs for storage. Do we know the pocketbox dimensions? I wondering if they'd work for OGRE minis?

I'll definitely get at least a couple empties - more likely several - for my old Illuminati and Car Wars and Ogre games.

I was trying to choose which pocket box games to get. Then I decided to make it easy and get them all. Hopefully, we'll unlock a bunch more through the expansion goals, too. :)

Smaller minis, probably so. Ogres, nope.

Possibly for smaller minis. Roughly 4-inches by 7-inches by 1.25-inches.

I'm thinking an empty would be perfect for holding ODE-size counters for my travel set. Currently, i just use ziplocks, but the Pocket Box would offer better protection.

That is a good thought. I have my classic counters in ziplocs. A pocket box would be much better.
