July 24, 2019: Pocket Box Preorders Reopened!
As the Pocket Box project continues to move forward at the factory, we have reopened the preorder page for everyone who has asked: "How do I get these games?" Since we officially closed the BackerKit preorders in June, we've received messages from many of you who missed out on the campaign.
We reviewed the inventory numbers and set the appropriate limits in BackerKit, so now you can jump in to grab a game . . . or a lot of games! Classics including Car Wars, Ogre, Illuminati, Necromancer, and much more, all of which are being reproduced as near-identically to their original format as we can manage.
The POCKET BOX was, for about seven years, the iconic Steve Jackson Games product format. These hard plastic cases, sized to fit the same racks that held paperback books back in the eighties, were everywhere!
We have designed a new POCKET BOX and now we are reproducing these classic games of the 1980s.
Working closely with our partners at GPI, we have taken steps to scan original POCKET BOX games and prepare them for print. Each title was scanned, reviewed by our team, and is as close to the original as we could manage. The only changes to the games are the POCKET BOX design (note), the addition of "2019 Reproduction" to components, and a back cover sheet that is removable once the shrinkwrap is opened.
