All reward levels below the $250 threshold will remain open and unlimited for the duration of this campaign.  All uppers levels are full.  Take a look at the FAQ for more details.  Thanks for everyone's support!

Concept

My story begins in 2008 when I first played Dominion.  Five years and every expansion later, I am still hooked.  There's just one problem: Dominion lovers eventually find themselves buried in a pile of boxes.  Not only does this take up a lot of space, but it takes a long time to dig through each box to set up a game.  I'm here to solve that issue for you with a box that:

  • Holds all 9 sets plus promo cards
  • Fits easily on your board game shelf
  • Sorts your basic cards for quick setup
  • Organizes and individually labels kingdom cards
  • Stores both sleeveless and sleeved cards
  • Is licensed (non-exclusively) with Rio Grande Games

The Solution

The Box Itself

My design solution begins with a standard wooden artist case, fully equipped with brass hardware and a leather handle. I have adapted it to create a customized storage case.  The box is engraved with the Dominion logo and comes unfinished (may be stained and/or varnished by the end user).

Box measures: 16 1/2" x 13" x 4 1/2"
Box measures: 16 1/2" x 13" x 4 1/2"

Inside the Box

The internal sections of the box are made from black acrylic, laser cut to organize all the components.  Every expansion (including promo cards and the latest Guilds expansion) will fit.  All supplemental game pieces have a dedicated storage space.  In order to accommodate both sleeveless and sleeved cards, I have come up with three variations that fit each option.

Option 1: Sleeveless Cards

Option 2: Standard Card Sleeves

(Example: Mayday Games Sleeves - Standard)

Kingdom cards are stored, individually labeled, over the full depth of the box.  Basic (victory and treasure) cards are also stored in the main body of the box, sorted and labeled for quick setup.

Option 3: Premium Card Sleeves

(Example: Fantasy Flight Sleeves)

The additional space required to fit premium card sleeves requires a 2-box solution.  Modified versions of the previous options are used and come with an extra double compartment card tray.  With 2 boxes, there is even some space left to add extra cards (fan cards, etc.)

Rewards

Each one of the box options is available as a reward for your support in getting production off the ground.

Dividers

+ Durable Plastic Dividers

Dividers are printed and laminated on a durable 24 pt plastic and die cut with alternating tabs to easily find what you need per game.  Take a look at the video (if you haven't already) to see just how well these plastic dividers hold up to repeated handling.  The entire series, 224 dividers in all, are printed and cut for you.

Your help is essential to kick-start the printing and die cutting process for these high-end dividers.  These come with each box or you can get them as a stand-alone reward.   

Also as a separate reward level, you can also get a PDF Divider File to self-print and cut their own dividers from a PDF file.  The file will be set up for 8-1/2 x 11 printing.

Coin Trays

Each box option comes with stacking coin trays, but they are also available as a separate reward.  The assembly includes 4 trays and a lid that stack and key together for storage. 

Additional Details and Notes

Please note that, fully-loaded, the box is heavy; nearly 3,000 cards add up!  I will be adding additional reinforcement to the bottom of the box to make the construction more robust.  Your help is again essential for this process as I require additional equipment.  (Even with extra reinforcement, I still recommended that the box be carried with both hands to help the leather handle remain like new over time.)

All rewards include insured shipping costs.

Thank You

Thank you to Rio Grande Games and Donald X. Vaccarino for making this amazing game.  I am proud to say that this is a licensed storage solution.

Thank you to my husband, friends and family for their continued support.  Special thanks to Joe Boyle for filming and editing the video.

Thank you to all contributors of this project!  

Risks and challenges

I have done my best to estimate the time-frame needed to fulfill all rewards with an adequate cushion. The upper level rewards are limited to maintain a realistic time-frame.

Printing and Die Cutting Dividers
For the prototype, the dividers are labeled 1-sided and organized alphabetically by set (because not everyone has every expansion and promo cards).
The goal in full production is to work out with the printers/ die cutters a 2-sided solution for maximum flexibility. This would allow users to organize the cards by set or alphabetically (irrespective of set). Contributors will be kept updated as to whether this solution is feasible. Otherwise, dividers will be printed 1-sided, organized by set, as seen in the prototype.

I do not foresee any major issues with the proposed graphics for the dividers based on numerous sample material. I will keep contributors informed if the printers come back with any red flags.

Printing services have a typical turnaround well within my schedule. I foresee potential delays only in coordinating the printers with the die cutting service.

Sourcing Raw Materials
I have discussed my projected raw material orders with suppliers and current inventory is well within their standard operations.

If any delays occur, I will keep contributors informed.

Refunds: Note that pledges may be cancelled at any time during the campaign funding period. After the funding period ends, refunds will generally only be issued if the reward is unable to be fulfilled, per Kickstarter's policies.
