Default The pocket boxes have landed!

I just received the new pocket boxes & they are really nice! I never really liked all the excess stuff in the deluxe editions/compendiums, so the first three pocket boxes are more my speed. Hopefully, I'll get to start on 'Convoy' this weekend, since this is the first time I've had a copy.

I ordered one of the "blank" PBs -- now I need to figure out what to do with it.

I wonder if one could fit a small video-game-console setup into one....

Ooh that's a good idea! I've got a couple extra empty pocket boxes and a raspberry pi collecting dust

If you want to talk about the generic Pocket Boxes, please do it in the Board and Dice Games forum. This forum is for Car Wars specifically.

OK -- broke out the old tape-measure, and measured the interior of the PB. It's 7" x 4"-and-a-bit x 1"-and-a-bit. That could fit not a few of my 1/200-scale minis.

Is anyone still making those foam inserts which are cut into 1/4" squares so one can make spaces which are just big enough for minis to fit? Websearch is failing me.

Is this what you mean?

Try Pick and Pluck foam - that works on UK sites, not sure about US.

Thought: Does anyone know how *tall* the 6th-ed. minis are? I'm assuming they're about 3" long, and 1.5" wide. Some paper prints, and one can make the exterior of a PB look like a Garage....

Is the Car Wars pocketbox available on its own from any of the open Backerkits right now?

Alternatively, when might we expect it in W23?

It looks like you'll be able to order them according to the Pocketbox.games site. ETA is January :)
