Boxes, Inserts and Sleeving
lots of photos and a video here to do my talking for me.
Tabletop Scotland debrief
Revised Box Insert has arrived - it all fits!
Final proofing being finished now - files go to manufacturer next week
Sleeving - Lots of photos
We are back from Tabletop Scotland - what a blast!
I have to give the organisers a shout out here as they are local, we know them well, and they are incredibly supportive of the Indie Publishing scene and all things gaming in Scotland. To get over 1,000 gamers to attend your convention in the first year is truly fantastic - well done to Dave, Simon, John, Duncan et al.
It was also our pleasure to meet so many backers, retailers and reviewers at the con who had an interest in the Legends Untold story. For those that have asked how easy Legends is, well I think last weekend was a particularly brutal experience for the Sax. At IG we have collectively seen three TPKs (Total Party Kills) in three years of demoing Legends at UKGE. We saw 5 TPKs (and several near misses) in two days at Tabletop Scotland.
I want to add a special thanks here to Eoghann and Duncan for helping Hugh and I demo over the two days. They did an amazing job and I know that many of the people who were given a game by them commented on how great the demo experience was. Well done guys and thank you!
So there you have it, those that were there saw the game, we showed you the new slightly bigger box and why we needed to increase it. Collectively from all at IG please accept our thanks for coming to the stand, playing the game and giving us your support - you were awesome!
Revised Box Insert
These arrived the day before the con and we only got a chance to actually open them and check the fit at the convention itself! I'm pleased (and relieved) to say that everything fits. This video shows it off best:
CAVEAT - The new box is NOT 14cm deeper it is 20mm deeper!
Final proofing being finished now
I'm pleased to say that Dave has finished his final pass of the Sewers Book. The files are being sent to the manufacturer next week!
Sleeving - Lots of photos
For those that want to sleeve I have been asked to show some pictures of the sleeves we have been using to check the inserts. I have set up the lightbox with a dark fabric to try and show you the contrast guys as the differences are less than a mm in most cases.
This is the first set of sleeves that I bought, these were used to measure the box insert:.
This image shows you the fit width wise for these cards, they really do fit like a glove:
This Image shows you the fit at the top. The shortall is so marginal it is really hard to show this properly. The sleeve is a smidge (and it really is that) too short, a fraction of a mm:
The next image shows you the top compared to the second sleeve type I was asked to try. You can see the second sleeve type is marginally taller than the card:
The next image shows the comparative width of both sleeve types, note the second sleeve types are indeed wider:
Finally here is an image of the second sleeve type I purchased so you can see the product:
Please note I am trying one more sleeve type (Swan Panasia 88x126mm), I don't think it will be tall enough but I will post the results of that next week when it arrives from Germany.
OK folks that's all for just now. There will be an update up fairly soon
when I confirm that the files are off to the manufacturer!
Best wishes to you and your families.
