I'm a fan of deck building games myself. Particularly Dominion and Legendary. I've designed this box for my own use, and I've used and lived with the various prototypes for months. Therefore I learned the hidden weaknesses of my earlier designs and headed back to the drawing board each time. Now I'm finally ready to share the NerdBox with you.

Do you play Dominion or Legendary? Then this box is most definitely for you. Do you play Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, or Pokemon? This box is for you, too. Cards Against Humanity? I'll even make a box for you, you horrible, horrible person ;-)

These boxes are begging for customization. Got some art or text you want engraved? Let's do it! Message me and we can work out the details!

• Exterior dimensions are 14-1/2" x 8-3/4" x 4-1/8" (horizontal) or 14-1/2" x 9" x 4-3/4" (vertical)
• Precision laser cut from 3mm Baltic Birch plywood (much of the box is actually 2-ply thick)
• Portions of the product can be cut from acrylic instead of plywood. Usually the center lanes
• Latches are 3D printed from PCTPE nylon
• Price listed is for the plain box, fully assembled. Options are extra.
• For custom etching or other adornment, please Request a Custom Order. I'll be happy to work with you!

I've designed and forged the NerdBox in Greensboro, NC at The Forge makerspace with a laser cutter/engraver. Thanks for supporting American small business!
