The thickness of the case has to be a factor in the dice size. I would expect the combined rulebook and map/counters to occupy a good portion of that, so we may be talking tiny novelty dice. Which is fine with me, as I suspect most gamers will have decent dice at hand already.

[sarcasm]I don't understand what you are talking about. How is having dice, already, ever relevant?[/sarcasm]

You're right, I wasn't thinking like a collector/hardcore gamer! You only EVER use a given set of dice with one game, otherwise they become tainted and refuse to work properly afterwards. ^_^

I wonder if they'll be those tiny Metagaming dice? Hard to use in a gaming setting, but the perfect size for snorting.

Ooooh, great stretch goal!


I've already done some promotion on Twitter.


If I win the lottery tonight or on Wednesday I'll add a half-dozen copies of the combined set. (One for each guest room of my new mansion.)

This is so amazing! I love the old pocket boxes! I hope we can reach this stretch goal - I've upped my pledge as much as I can to do my part to get there, because I want so many copies of those boxes - for me, for my kids, for my friends, and to donate to the library in my dad's name since he was the one that got me into gaming, and until recently was the only person I had played melee with :)

On the KS comments section, Philip answered my question: "Will the pocket box version have 1" (or whatever the original had) hexes?"


"Yes."


So the pocket version will be the portable version for gaming on the go!

I wish the Pocket Box had come sooner in the stretch goals

$300,000 seems awfully far away at this point.

It's almost at $240K right now, with 3 days to go and from what I've read, the project ought to earn around $100K during the last two days.

I'm hopeful it will make this goal. It does seem a bit distant at the moment, but it's also a big manufacturing leap compared to other goals. So it makes sense it would need a fair amount of seed money.

The costs to produce the Pocket Box are considerably higher than many of the other stretch goals. We placed it at this point because, realistically, that is where it needs to be to be a viable addition to the campaign.

The best way to unlocked the Pocket Box? Spread word of the project!
