About

Ready To Play Storage solution for the game Small World

$5,916

44

Hello Kickstarters! My name is Jeff Thompson and I have been looking for a way to store board game pieces and parts that allows games to be set up and put away faster and easier, and if it looked as good as it functioned that would be even better. One of the games I play has quite a few tokens, and while the original game inserts work pretty well I wanted something that would take up less room, take less time to set up/put away and keep everything together. I came up with a few designs, made some prototypes and since they turned out so well, I thought I would see if other people were interested in my solution.

I had a lot of fun developing storage solutions for the game Small World and all of its expansions. They allow you to store everything in the game boxes or in a custom storage box.

The BASIC storage set holds the base game and several small expansions.

The ENHANCED storage set holds the base game and Realms and the other small expansions.

The DELUXE storage set holds the base game and Small World Underground and Realms and all the other expansions.

See the descriptions below for more details.

___________________________________________________________________

There is extra space in all of these storage sets for future expansions.

The ENHANCED and DELUXE storage sets have enough room for all the new expansions being released in November (Royal Bonus, A Spider's Web, Necromancer Island and Leaders of Small World).

The BASIC storage set only has enough room for a couple of them, but once they are released I will try and make as many fit as possible.

___________________________________________________________________

Storage Pieces

All of the storage pieces are made of birch hardwood and available in their natural wood color or stained. Stain color choices include: Golden Oak, Provincial, Dark Walnut and Ebony.

All the storage pieces help reduce set-up and tear-down times, especially the race token holders.They help keep the race tokens organized throughout the game, making tear-down time even shorter.

Unassembled Storage Sets - $42 pledge level

(Free shipping in the US, +$25 for Canada, +$35 for international shipping)

Unassembled storage set kits are available for those backers who have the time, skill and equipment necessary to put together their own storage set. There are a lot of small pieces to deal with so it can be a daunting task. Assembly instructions will be included. (Application of a clear finish is recommended in order to protect the storage pieces and game components.)

An unassembled basic storage set has 227 pieces ($42 pledge.) For an additional $48 ($73 international) you can get a matching storage box 'kit'.

An unassembled enhanced storage set has 295 pieces ($54 pledge.) For an additional $53 ($78 international) you can get a matching storage box 'kit'.

An unassembled deluxe storage set has 371 pieces ($65 pledge.) For an additional $58 ($83 international) you can get a matching storage box 'kit'.

Finished Storage Sets - starting at the $72 pledge level

Finished storage sets are completely assembled, stained and have at least 2 coats of clear satin finish applied to all the pieces, protecting them and the components they hold.

___________________________________________________________________

Custom Storage Boxes

All of the storage boxes available with this project are made out of Poplar (except for the Ultimate Edition storage box which is made out of Oak) and lined with felt. All finished storage boxes will be sanded, stained (color choices include: Golden Oak, Provincial, Dark Walnut and Ebony) and coated with a clear satin finish. You can also choose not to have your storage box stained if you would like to finish it yourself.

Each of the storage boxes is made to fit the storage set you choose (Basic, Enhanced or Deluxe.)

A graphic of the Earth (centered on whichever global coordinates you prefer) will be engraved on the lid. You may also choose a random world design that I have made.

Risks and challenges

Four new expansions for Small World are scheduled to be released in November. If they are delayed then there may be a small delay in delivering storage sets. There is some extra time added to the delivery schedule in case I need to make any minor changes so that the expansions will fit in the Enhanced and Deluxe storage sets.

I have already completed a storage project on Kickstarter for the game Elder Sign, and the backers who provided feedback were very pleased with their rewards.

That project took longer than expected to finish, so in order to better estimate the delivery date of rewards, I have limited the number of rewards available at each pledge level. If all the rewards at a pledge level are taken I will add another limited pledge level for the same item(s) with an appropriate estimated ship date.

All of the equipment for this project is already in place, and the materials are readily available. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know and I will do my best to answer them. Thank you for your interest in my project.
