Box art file I sent to my manufacturer

This is obviously smaller than the real thing, because of the size limit here, but this recently came up, so I thought I'd show what a "box" looks like to a manufacturer.

Additionally I wanted to note that each of my cards is about a 100mb PDF file, when saved with its layers (about 5mb saved as a TIFF). Files are not small! And this is also why MS Word is not the right file format.

We added 4 new types of Mini Storage Box to our Board Game Accessories Shop! These plastic boxes are stackable and come in 4 different colors with each color having different dividers inside. They work great inside game boxes when you need to keep your game components organized.

Axis Mundi Updates

I have been working a lot on Axis Mundi.

The rule book has been re-written to 1) completely focus on the 3-player game (I took out the 6-player game because I couldn't play-test it), 2) character's, Angel's, and Demon's variable powers were re-balanced, 3) a real-time mechanic was added for advanced play, 4) rules were generally clarified, simplified, and cover more possible game states, and 5) the game's end-phase gameplay was improved. All in all, these changes reduced the length of the rule book by about 7 pages.

Introducing the Medium Stout Box!

Darkness & Light Kickstarter is live!

I know I haven't really been talking about it much here, but I've been working on an expansion pack for my Heroes & Treasure game. It's not a new design, obviously, though it will contain new mechanics such as scrolls and traps.
