Slide Top Box

Nice and solid box. Simple design. A bit too large, though. Needs branding. The separator not essential, wastes space, will go.

P1080702

Love the chessboard.

Need a Box

Old style carton box pictured will not do. Thinking slide top box for Stage 1 sets, a little nicer one for Stage 2.

Eastern Rulz

Tip of the hat to 1950 Dubrovnik design by Andrija Marović. No religious symbols, opposite capped bishops. Natural chestnut polish.
Funky.

First Set Finished

Champagne again. Produced the first BCE set ever. Patting own back.
Serial number S1WB0001 (Stage 1 Western Black 0001). Looks beautiful. Feels beautiful.
