About this project
All boxes will now be upgraded to 1/4" wall thickness free of charge. This will include all kits, assembled boxes, standard and XL sizes as well as the mahogany upgrades and Dominion box versions.
Hello Kickstarter, my name is Greg Spence. I'm a gamer at heart and I love to build customized accessories.
In the past year, Cards Against Humanity has become one of our favorite party games to play with friends. We're carrying it everywhere we go. However, once you've purchased all the expansions, its no longer as easy to grab and go. Sure, there are other storage solutions out there but most of them are cheap cardboard.
The Case For Humanity is a simple device really. It holds cards. But this isn't some cheap box, it's YOUR box! The case can be customized to create a truly one-of a kind storage solution for your games. The standard box is large enough to hold all of the CAH expansions with room to grow. The case will hold 1100 unsleeved cards or about 600 sleeved cards.
Still don't think that's big enough? Now you can upgrade to our XL box! This behemoth is over 11 inches of pure wood with 6 inches of girth! It can hold 1800 unsleeved cards or about 900 sleeved cards.
Are you worried about your other card games getting jealous of CAH's killer box? Don't despair, they can have one too! Do you play Magic: The Gathering? This box can hold a bunch of decks, extra cards and accessories... and do it all in style!
You can even use the box to carry a bunch of your favorite smaller cards games like Gloom, Fluxx, Lunch Money and more. Here's the box holding 8 different games, a bunch of playing cards and still room for more!
With each box you can choose to have the standard "Case For Humanity" engraved on all 5 sides or leave it off completely. If you pledge for an assembled box, you can also choose your favorite finish from the list below.
Want even more customization? For a small upgrade of $10 dollars per box, we will engrave your custom text. We will work with you to make sure your text fits and looks nice. If you can provide a vector image of the text, be sure to convert fonts to curves first. You can also give us directions on where you'd like the text placed. Below is a simple example of customizing your box with your name.
Want something REALLY custom? For an upgrade of $25 dollars per box, we will not only engrave your custom text but we will engrave a highly-detailed custom image on the top. We can accept vector or raster images in almost any format. For raster images (JPG, GIF, PNG, etc) please be sure they are high resolution. Also be sure you have permission to use the image or that it is copyright-free.
Mahogany Wood Upgrade
For an additional $8 dollars per box (standard and XL, kit or assembled) you can now upgrade your box to a mahogany plywood. This upgrade also includes upgrading the box from 1/8" to 1/4" walls while keeping the interior dividers at 1/8". For finished boxes, the Mahogany upgrade includes a specific finish to bring out the natural wood grain and color. This option will not include a separate stain on top of the wood.
Are you a do-it-yourselfer? If so, "The Craftsman" pledge level may be for you! Receive one full box kit pre-sanded and ready to assemble. Not sure if you have the chops to assemble one of these bad boys? Check out our assembly video for more information. I have confidence you can do it!
I'm proud to announce a new box to the line-up that is officially licensed by Rio Grande Games. This box is similar in size to the XL box above but with additional height to support vertical tabbed dividers. In addition, the box will be engraved with the Dominion logo.
With all these options available, do you still want something even more one-of-a-kind? For a limited number of backers we have an option to work closely with you to design your dream game case. Want to have a box made out of Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Purpleheart or Zebrawood? Want it engraved on all sides with pictures of your kids or some other artwork? We'll make it happen! Tell us your idea and we'll help bring it to life. We'll advise you if we think your request won't produce a nice box, such as staining Purpleheart or engraving a detailed image on top of Zebrawood. Some options just don't go well together.
So Many Options!
Use the following charts to plan your upgrade options. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send me a message. Notice that additional boxes receive a discount because we're cool like that! I apologize to international backers for increased prices but this is to cover additional shipping fees.
To include options, manage your pledge, pick the base reward level but increase your pledge amount by the total of the options. A survey will be sent out at the end of the project to confirm all of your options before we start production.
$6,000: Felt Pads (Unlocked!)
I wouldn't be very happy knowing that my case scratched your nice dining room table so everyone will receive 10mm brown felt pads with every box. This includes the unassembled kits as well!
$14,000: XL Box (Unlocked!)
The XL box is now available for a small upgrade fee. See the upgrade chart above for details. This new box holds 50% more cards than the standard box and comes with 4 adjustable dividers as well as one fixed divider panel allowing for up to 8 compartments.
$20,000: Smooooth! (Unlocked)
All "Craftsman" kits will now arrive pre-sanded and ready to assembly. You'll still need to sand the outside of the box and round the corners after gluing it together (see the video above), but you'll no longer need to sand the pieces prior to assembly.
$24,000: Kickstarter Pride! (Unlocked)
You now have the option to have the "Funded with Kickstarter" badge engraved either on the top or bottom of the box, your choice! You may also choose to leave the badge off completely. The badge will be engraved to produce a really cool 3D image of the Kickstarter logo. The badge will be positioned in the lower-right corner of the top or bottom.
Risks and challenges
Having produced many prototypes of this case for myself and for friends, I'm confident that I can produce many more of them for you. My wood supplier has plenty of material in stock. The only potential risk is receiving more orders than I could fulfill which I've mitigated by setting limits on the number of boxes that can be sold for a given time frame.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
