Where can I get a bunch of small boxes, preferably 1"x1"x1" and transparent (possibly with colored walls, as if it had cellophane on it)?

Thanks in advance,

ACG

1"x1"x1" boxes

Oh my gosh... I'm actually making a game using 1" x 1" x 1" boxes as well!! I actually bought wooden ones down at Michaels (the craft store).

What's your game about?

Mine's about making patterns and getting points. It's not much more complicated than that, but it's a hell of alot of fun!

It's called "Other People's Junk" -- working title was Junkyard Wars (based on the TV show). I've got the rules posted in the Game Design section.

The boxes are there to represent workers. They're necessary because a worker may be carrying objects on his body. You put the tiles representing the objects along with the token representing the worker (a colored Pente piece, the color indicating which team he's on) in the box to indicate that the objects are being carried by the worker.

Incidentally, here's a place where you can get 25 1x1x1 boxes for $4:

I recently saw these translucent cubes at www.boardgamedesign.com. They're the size of a regular die which may be too small for your purposes, but worth a shot anyways. I was thinking to myself "who would ever need to buy blank dice?" But I guess you could probably use em:

1" Cubes

Holy $#!T that's weird, I'm looking for 1" transparent cubes too. Weird that it's such a hot commodity. I realized solid cubes are CRAZY expensive on a large scale so I think I'm going with a hollow shape...which brings up manufacturing. I think what I've determined is that my cubes should be 2cm (I'm Canadian) instead of 1inch, and they should be made of die-cut, heavy guage transparent PVC. I've made prototypes and it works for me at a rediculously lower price. Fastening them with a crystal clear apoxy or something will probably be my next step.
