The Game Crafter Now Supports Embedded Games!

The Game Crafter - Embedded Games are now possible

You can now embed games into other games as if they were a game piece. People have been asking for this for quite a while, and we’re happy to finally be able to offer it. Potential uses are:

1) Keep decks separated so customers don’t need to sort them.
2) Prepackage items for games were secrecy is important upon opening the box. Legacy games and Escape Room games would both benefit here.
3) Make booster boxes for CCG / TCG games.
4) Create a deluxe version of a game that includes the main game, and expansions.
5) Boxception! If you want a box within a box, this is the way to do it!
