Hi Greg!

Haven't heard much from you in a while.

Hope you are doing well.

PS - people should know that...
Rob is "Da Man"! Who runs the whole Dice Tower Website, and it's an honor to hear from him.

Hah! Well thank you - that was very kind! Yeah - I don't have a huge collection of games anymore - but Precinct is a keeper. I had watched a video on foam core building - and this game was such a candidate for trying it out - as I had been using a Plano box that really didn't allow the lid to close all the way - this is my 2nd attempt at an insert - I really liked this one.

Karl - you da man - thanks again!

Any chance you have a link to that video. After seeing yours and this amazing one for Gears of War: The Board Game, I might have to try my hand at this.

Hey Erik. I didn't create a video - I just sorta built these on the fly - starting out with simply the bottom and border - making sure that will fit easily into the box - and then I typically start with some pieces - putting them in the box and then starting out with the one border to enclose it - and then just build outwards.

I was really worried that the glue wouldn't be strong enough - but it's really sturdy. I got some craft glue at the Hobby Store that works great.
