Default plans to release of Pocket Box version of Battlefields

In yesterday's Illuminator, SJG announced that a new round of Pocket Box games is in the works, including a version of Ogre Battlefields. Something to look forward to!

I'm hoping the original art ends up on the box (or gets put on a box sticker like other art)

All very exciting. I wonder what other new titles there will be.

I received my Pocket Box Ogre bundle yesterday. Everything in it looks fantastic. They really captured the look of the originals. Hope the new pocket box Battlefields includes die-cut counters. Those are a very nice upgrade.

BTW: the coasters are beautiful. Definitely worth it.

Yeah, they did a very good job with the reproductions. :-)

Thank you!!! The factory and Sabrina get most of the credit for the quality of the reproduction.

You mean that 2000 (or was it 2001?) Battlefields release?

Fair enough, but it is the look of the original, for better or worse (I happen to like it).

If not the art on the box, maybe as a sticker we can put on a blank box?
