The box insert has arrived

Posted by Karl Tiedemann (Creator)

Quick update time!

I've just received the custom molded insert for the game and I wanted to share it with you…

Those are the final wooden player pieces in there as well. I've overlaid the final card art to simulate what the finished product might look like. And that's not the final die, but it's the same color and size.

I have to admit that I'm fairly relieved at how well this came out. It seems like such a simple thing, but I agonized over the design of this. I still need to take some measurements to be absolutely sure this is to my spec and will fit the box correctly, etc. But at first blush, this looks good.

Okay! That's all for now.

      They should be finished next week! There was a misprint on 500 of the box tops (Oof!) that set us back a couple weeks. But that was 2 weeks ago, so I'm expecting the final production email this next week. Woo hoo!

      Any further updates? I'm excited to get my copy, just curious as to the status. :)

      @Cameron That's the Fionna and Cake comic book! We're fans.

      Thanks for the support, everybody! As fun as this is, it's also a lot of work. After work. After the kids have gone to sleep. Between changing the baby. So your energy helps a LOT.

      My understanding is that production will take 5-6 weeks from the time I approve all the proofs and the plastic insert. I need to take some solid measurements of the insert yet to give it a thumbs up, but it looks good. I'm awaiting the next round of proofs from the printer now (to get the proper bottom art, per my last Update). So already it looks like March is out. I hate the shifting deadline, but I can only estimate based on what I know at the time.

      The insert will not likely accommodate sleeved cards. Per my Update on its design, accommodating sleeves would have required that I double the volume of the box since sleeves effectively double the width of each card and add height & width.

      Will this hold cards in sleeves?

      Looks awesome. Is late March-early April still the eta?

      That looks amazingly polished and professional! Also why are Cake and Fiona there looking all bad ass?

      Well done Karl. Thanks for your hardwork and focus on the details on the project.

      Isn't it always the "simple" things that are anything but simple?
