Tuck and Cover

...a noir term meaning to confess, admit secrets. More on that in a moment...

But first let's celebrate unlocking the tuck boxes! 

We can't begin to tell you what a HUGE difference these will make in terms of organization for the game and sleekness of the overall open box experience. Each tuck box will hold the contents of that individual case keeping them safe from prying eyes.

Regarding sleeves and tuck boxes as the question has already been asked by a few backers if the tuck boxes will fit sleeved cards... We like to accommodate "sleevers" whenever possible and will endeavor to do our best to do so for Detective, but ultimately the final decision will have to be made after working with the manufacturer on the internal packaging and production planning. In summary, unless some currently unknown factor prevents us from doing so, the tuck boxes should be able to fit sleeved cards.

Next up...

And now let's look at what is next. It was difficult for us not to "sing" and spoil this one when several of you suggested this very thing in the comments. Well the fact is if you are willing to put in the effort, designing your own case for Detective is extremely rewarding. While it certainly could be done on your own with a bit of doing, unlocking this official Design Your Own Case Kit will make it a heck of a lot easier. The kit will be accessible via digital download and will include art templates for response cards, search cards, case cards, the Chisel Grid, and even instructions from the designer guidelines for case design!

Thanks to everyone out there sharing the project, engaging in discussion about the game, and just generally being awesome supporters. We appreciated you!

Thanks,

AJ, Evan, and Vincent

      I love the Design Your Own Case Kit! That’s taking this game up a few notches for me.

      @Dan thank you for the feedback. It is something we will consider as well.

      @Marcus guaranteed for the base game. Expansion will be evaluated separately but the goal is to do so :)

      @Craig love the idea of that, but not something we can commit to at the moment. BGG does a pretty good job as a house of sorts for fan expansions of certain games. But hey maybe it is something we can make work on our website. We'll have to think about it.

      Will there also be an online hub for downloading other homebrew cases? That would be fantastic!

      With the kit this becomes a game of longevity and replayability.

      Oh yes one question when you say every case do you just mean the 8 core cases or does it include the 3 expansion cases?

      Love the tuck boxes, but I hope there will not be too much "space" in the boxes for those of us that do not sleeve our cards. Those boxes will become crushed over time.

      Sorry, but it's one man's opinion.
