From epic table top board games to intense LCG and Collectible Card games, you can take pride in your gaming sessions with ABODE Card Boxes. This project is just the first in our planned line of ABODE Thematic Gaming Accessories. With your help, we can bring more amazing products to your table top in the near future!
Our goal for ABODE card boxes was to make something that would accentuate the magnificent themes of your table top games. There are dozens upon dozens of storage specific card boxes available, usually cut out of plain wood sheets and meant as a storage solution only. We wanted a product that would wow our friends and guests as they sit down to play these wonderful games with us!
Each box is cut out of 1/8" [3mm] transparent acrylic panels, the high resolution designs are then etched into each piece.
IRON ABODE - KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
The inside width of the standard Single Deck box measures 2.625" [66mm]. The box was designed to be 'one size fits most'. You may now select from two or three widths to better fit your preferred cards and sleeves. Look out for updates on this stretch goal.
The sides of each box are approx. 1.75" [45mm] high. This will hold about 100 unsleeved cards, or 75 sleeved cards.
A backwards tilt of 3 degrees keeps the card stack resting against the sturdy back panel, and not falling forward each time a new card is drawn.
The bottom panel is elevated from the table top allowing for a small graveyard pile to be tucked away underneath. This holds about 15 unsleeved cards or 10 sleeved cards.
You can choose from the following colors for any Card Box and Theme Bling:
Dark Purple, STRETCH GOAL! (Darkest color, hard to see the color in this photo)
Violet, STRETCH GOAL!
Yellow (Replaced Dark Yellow, same color)
Fluorescent Blue, STRETCH GOAL!
Orange (Replaces Amber, very similar to original amber sample)
Fluorescent Red (More of a pink color)
Fluorescent Yellow, STRETCH GOAL!
Light Blue (Similar to Fluorescent Blue, slightly darker, less edge glow)

Dark Red (See Infected pics on main page for a better representation)
Smoke (Not pictured, still available)

Risks and challenges
This is our first product. As such we have been very careful to consider all costs involved with creating and shipping this product. That said as with any project, there are many unforeseen hiccups that can hinder our progress. We will work diligently to resolve any issues that may arise.
We will have a large focus on transparency with our Backers. We will send updates several times a week to keep backers fully informed of our progress, including issues and resolutions to those issues.
If the project becomes far more successful than we anticipated, we will need to buy an additional laser to increase output. We will work to keep the laser cutting and etching in house so we maintain control over the quality of each piece.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
