It depends on how you set it up - each shelf gives you a max area of 39x43.5cm storage space, minus the size of the 4 pillars (4x2.5cm each). That's about the size of one standard square box and a couple of "expansion" sized box, or 4-5 smaller games. Two rectangle boxes also fit in that space. Configuring your BoxThrone to maximize space will allow you to fit up to 20 games of various sizes per BoxThrone (as shown in the "High storage capacity!" section on the campaign page). See the "Dimensions" section for more info.Last updated:
The regular sized shelves have a 10 kg weight rating.
The extra wide shelves have a 10 kg weight rating.Last updated:
Right now the drawers come in black and white, and extra wide shelves come in the same array of colors as the regular sized shelves.Last updated:
Sure can, the top/bases of the BoxThrone is rated for 50kg.Last updated:
Yes! Every BoxThrone will come with L-brackets. For your safety, we recommend using them :)Last updated:
The short story is that NOW is the best time to back the campaign.
In 2018, we plan on opening an ecommerce store but at that time VAT/GST/sales tax charges will be extra, whereas right now, they are included in the campaign for free.
The color selection may also be limited and may not ship to every destination.
So during the campaign is the BEST time to back the BoxThrone!Last updated:
The BoxThrone was designed to sit on the floor, so for safety and liability reasons, we cannot recommend wall mounting your BoxThrone.Last updated:
Sure will! We'll be using the CrowdOx pledge manager system, which will be accessible to all backers shortly after the close of the campaign. In the pledge manager system you'll be able to modify your pledge freely.
Pledging at any level during the campaign gets you access to the pledge manager, which will be open until the end of January.Last updated:
Simply add the $ value of the add-ons you'd like to your pledge. Once the campaign ends you'll receive a survey where you will specify which add-ons you wanted.Last updated:
Yep, see 'Manage Pledge' here:
Yes, but you are on the lower end of the scale. For example, shipping to Switzerland would be approximately:
15kg - $35
30kg - $50
60 kg - $99
Just keep in mind you may have to pay VAT/import duties upon arrival at your door.Last updated:
Two singles can be turned into a Double, as all the bases are identical - hurray for modularity!
A Double only comes with 3 bases, so if you're only a BoxPrince pledge level, you'd need to get an extra base add-on or upgrade to BoxDuke.Last updated:
Yes, using the 67.5 cm extra wide shelves add-on, bridged between two BoxThrones.Last updated:
You can have as many colors as you want, but the minimum is 4 shelves per color. Have fun!Last updated:
Replacing regular bridge shelves with 67.5 cm extra wide shelves adds 29.5 cm to the total width of your BoxThrone system.Last updated:
Gloomhaven with inserts is a serious anomaly in terms of weight, we recommend putting it on the base of your BoxThrone (or on the middle base if you have a Double BoxThrone). The bases can handle 50kg of weight. For safety/liability reasons we can't recommend going over the 10 kg weight rating of the metal shelves.Last updated:
You can make a Quintuple BoxThrone if you want! It's completely modular - all the bases are identical, so you can configure your setup however you want, they stack together nicely. If you're stacking them three units tall, please affix them to the wall using the included L-brackets for your own safety.
A Triple BoxThrone would be 234.6cm tall.Last updated:
Regular sized shelves are 380 grams each.
Extra wide shelves are 560 grams each.
Drawers (with sliders) are 1.9 kg.
One ShortThrone is 5.5kg.
The total weight of the Deluxe Playmat Holder is 500 grams.
Single BoxThrone is approx. 8 kg. Double BoxThrone is approx. 15kg. Pledge levels are fixed shipping costs, the shipping calculation will just add the approx. shipping charges of the add-ons and additional pledges to your fixed pledge level shipping charge.Last updated:
Having 7-9 shelves per BoxThrone is the perfect amount to maximize your storage capacity while still having little to no game-on-game stacking.Last updated:
It's math time! Basically, the formula is this:
-Start with 17.1" for a single Double BoxThrone.
-Then add 30.9" for every additional Double you add with bridge shelves.
-Then for every extra wide shelf set you replace regular shelves with, add an extra 11.6" (because the extra wides are 11.6" wider than a regular shelf).
So with that formula, if you're looking at this setup:
(B=BoxThrone, WS=Wide Shelves, S=Regular Shelves)
Your total system width would be:
17.1+30.9+30.9+11.6 = 90.5"
Check out the bottom of the "Dimensions" section for a visual!
(Metric conversion below.)
Start with 43.5 cm for a single Double BoxThrone.
-Then add 78.6 cm for every additional Double you add with bridge shelves.
-Then for every extra wide shelf set you replace regular shelves with, add an extra 29.5 cm (because the extra wides are 29.5 cm wider than a regular shelf).Last updated:
If you can imagine it, you can do it.
Some configurations include:
-the BoxLegend with extra wide shelves
-walls of BoxThrones lining the room with every third tower topped with a ShortThrone
-configurations BoxThrones in a "pyramid"formation, one BoxThrone connected to two BoxThrones underneath
-two BoxKings either side of a fireplace
-Triple and Quadruple BoxThrone towers (please anchor this to the wall)Last updated:
Most of the hole spacing is uniform at 2.7cm center to center (vertically measured). This means a minimum shelf clearance of 2.1cm after considering the 6mm thick shelf. However, not all the holes are uniformly spaced apart - there are 2 holes near the top and the bottom of the column with a 2.9cm space to the next hole (2.3 cm shelf clearance) - this allows you to store a variety of box heights with the smallest amount of space wastage. FYI for most games, you'll be spacing your shelves 2-4 holes apart.Last updated:

I pledged for the WALL OF HEROES, but want some extra wide shelves instead of regular shelves. What do?
For our esteemed WALL OF HEROES pledgers, you have the option of trading in sets of 8 regular shelves at a rate of $1.95 per shelf (so $15.60 per 8-shelf set) for credit toward extra wide shelves. This credit will have to be added manually to your account, so if you're a WOH pledger and you're interested in this, please message us or email firstname.lastname@example.org *once the pledge manager has been sent out*.Last updated:
Hanging the playmat holder on your system adds 7.5cm of width. The rings are 7cm in diameter and the runner is 0.5cm thick. There is an inner space of 6cm diameter within each ring.Last updated:
