Circle Shards at The Game Crafter

The Game Crafter is pleased to announce that we’ve worked out a new process for producing Circle Shards. In this new process, the shards are punched out into slugs rather than individually. The player will then punch the shards out of the slugs.

3/4" chits are now available at The Game Crafter!

3/4” chits have been one of our most popularly requested printed components, and we’re pleased today to announce Small Circle Chits! They are circular measuring 3/4” across and come 150 to a sheet. They are printed both sides full bleed. You can get a sheet of these for $9.49, or just over 6 cents each chit.

In order to keep costs low and improve handling they are cut into 10 slugs and left in the slug for the customer to punch out. Because of this they require a bit larger box (not a tuck box) such as any of our pro boxes, or the medium game box.

Other times it is because they have a deluxe and a basic version of the same game. Whatever your reasons, you can now do exactly that.
Go into your game and click “Edit Details”. At the bottom of the screen you can see a list of all your games. You can click on one to link it to the current game.
