Then we will proceed with working on all other orders in the sequence in which they were received. We’ve got quite the backlog thanks to all of our amazing customers, but we will work hard to get them out as quickly as possible.

New: Custom Game Scents at The Game Crafter

Many people in The Game Crafter community enjoy the smoky campfire smell that occurs when we manufacture games with laser cut components. However, for those of you who aren't fans, we added 5 new scents that you can apply to your game. We hope you enjoy these new options and we plan to expand our collection later this year.
