We at Sand Box Gaming are excited to share our new products with everyone! We know that there are thousands of games out there, and even more being developed and backed on Kickstarter as we speak (trust us, we've backed our fair share!). Before designing our modular inserts, most of our game piece storage included zip lock bags and rubber bands. We love our game collections and want to make sure they are well-protected and look amazing when we bring them to game night. That's what inspired us to design our modular game box insert system.
We've sent our inserts to many different testers, and have been using them ourselves for a while. Now it's time to share the freedom to be able to protect and organize your games, regardless of size and components.
The beauty of our product is that everything is modular, so you just purchase one of the base containers that fits in your particular game box and then select inserts that best organize the components of your games.
Each of our products are made from a high quality Baltic Birch plywood that both gives a high quality look and feel for the product, and ensures it will last for a very long time.
We will be offering 3 different-sized containers and 5 different types of inserts for the Kickstarter, with more inserts and container sizes to be released when our webstore goes live after fulfilment.
Deck Inserts - We have 2 types of Deck Inserts that we are currently offering. The covers are included, but are optional. Their main function is to ensure that the cards will not get damaged if you move the game box around or if you store the games sideways. The inserts have also been designed to accommodate sleeved cards.
*sleeved count is using penny sleeves
Token Drawers - We have 3 types of Token Drawers that we are currently offering. These token drawers are offered as add-ons, but can also be used as stand alone products. If you have a game in a small box with only a few components, you can utilize the token drawers without the full box containers.
*The Split Token Drawer is two shorter drawers stacked on top of each other for additional organizational utility, as shown in the picture below:
You can add additional inserts and token drawers to your pledge by upping the pledge amount for your selected level according to the cost of each additional insert you would like. See the Add-On section further down for pricing.
Along with the products being great for storage and organization, they also allow for some functionality when playing your games. We have a quick video that shows how you can utilize the products during your game play:
Kickstarter Pledge Levels
For our pledge levels, we have put together what we would consider "starter bundles". In addition to each pledge level bundle, we are offering the Token Drawers, Deck Inserts and the Short Sand Bar, Sand Bar, and Sand Box as add-ons. Using these, in addition to the bundles, will provide you many ways to store, protect, and organize your games.
Sand Bar Bundle
Sand Box Bundle
Sand Castle Bundle
Sand Fortress Bundle
THERE WILL NOT BE A WAY TO ADD FUNDS FOR ADDITIONAL ADD-ONS ONCE THE CAMPAIGN IS OVER, SO MAKE SURE YOU ADD THE FUNDS FOR THE ADD-ONS YOU WANT WHILE THE PROJECT IS STILL LIVE.
Below are the products that can be add-ons to your pledge level bundles. Images of each of these items can be found above the pledge level descriptions prior to this section to help you gauge what you might need.

Here is an image showing the Sand Bar and Short Sand Bar side by side. The Short Sand Bar is the exact length to fit 3 inserts.
Our product was made to work with hundreds of games. Below are some examples of how we have utilized them, but the possibilities are endless!
The above games were organized using components you will receive in the Sand Castle Bundle. You will see that not all games will require the full amount of inserts you will be sent, so this will allow you to have additional inserts to use in other games as well.
The above games were organized using variations of the Sand Bar Bundle. You can see that for each of these games we used add-on items to complete the organization to our liking, but with the system we have designed, there are numerous ways to use your items to organize how you would like.
*Note that Carcassonne was organized using the Short Sand Bar and Token Drawer. Both of these items are in the add-on section and do not come in any of the base pledges.
The above games were organized using what you will receive in the Sand Box Bundle and did not require any additional add-on pieces.
*Note that in the Fallout picture we used 2 of the Token Drawers instead of the Double Token Drawer that you will receive in the Sand Box pledge level. This was due to the early photograph used for this game prior to us having decided to create the Double Token Drawer that is now being used.
We have decided to charge a flat rate of $7 for any pledge level being shipped within the United States. The international shipping rates will unfortunately be much higher and we are currently estimating $40. However, international shipping rates may apply. In addition, if the cost to ship to you internationally ends up being less than the $40 that was charged as part of the project we will reach out to you come time for shipping and inform you of any excess shipping funds that are in your favor and allow you to apply them towards any additional add-ons that you may want.
Additionally, there will be no extra shipping charges added for any add-ons that you choose to include in your pledge, unless you are only pledged at the $5 pledge level, in that instance we will be contacting you each individually after the campaign has ended in order to collect shipping costs.
If you choose to add a large number of add-ons to your pledge, the shipping may fall beyond the estimated ship date set for the wave you are a part of. If this may happen, we will reach out to you personally to let you know of any delays.
FUTURE OF SAND BOX GAMING
Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter campaign. We hope you have a better idea of what we are doing as a company and that you are excited to contribute to our new adventure! We have so many ideas for new inserts and designs, and if this campaign goes well, we are excited to continue to add to our line of products.
All pictures in the campaign were taken using prototype versions of the products. As we continue to test the products and get feedback from our testers we may make small adjustments for ease of assembly and use.
Risks and challenges
This project comes with very few risks and challenges. The only limitation we foresee would be if we get a larger than estimated amount of backers. However, this is a problem we wouldn't mind having. We feel we have given sufficient time for us to fulfill orders and if we really do get a huge response we are confident we can up our production and resources to meet the demands.
Another risk would be if our laser machine goes out, which could cause our shipments to be delayed due to repairs. But, we have put some mitigation measures in place to help ensure we don't have this issue, or if it does occur for any reason, that the delay would be minimal as we are prepared for any minor fixes or repairs that may need to take place.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
