Hi,

Just want to let you Know that PG has run out of replacement boxes for Cthulhu wars Core Game.
So take good care of your boxes!!

Got mine a couple of days ago as part of the Onslought Two campaign. Unfortunately it was seriously damaged at the upper right corner.
When getting in contact with their Customer Service i was told that they ve run out for quite some time and they cannot foresee a certain Date when getting them back in stock.

Oh no!
I was hoping to be able to pick one up at Essen this year!


Ah well, by then they might have new ones...

I would take another empty box just to stuff all the expansions into. Any option to just buy a box to have an extra on hand?

I'm expecting them by Essen, hopefully.

We are simply going to print some extras as replacements when we produce O2 stuff.

Are the new boxes (to go with the remade inserts first seen in the French edition) the same size as the original boxes or are they smaller? If they are smaller, which size will be reprinted? Will people be able to get the new inserts to replace the old one if they want to?

They will be like the VF box.

Sorry, let me explain -

they're slightly smaller (very slightly), with an improved, and lighter, plastic tray system (two trays that stack on each other). The outside will be mostly identical - the bottom may have some different markings (for example, it won't have "KS first edition" on it). It won't have the backer names on it either, for example.

I would like to purchase said box. Where can I send money?

Any hope of adding an "Empty Core Box" add-on to the pledge manager for os2?

Wow. I wonder what would happen if we just added it as a SKU for like $7 to the PM? Good idea/bad idea?

I'd get one, particularly if it had the sexy new insert.

I would buy one or two in a heart beat. It's something as simple as a box, but that's the storage solution I think alot of people have been looking for, especially for the expansions.

Also I imagine it would be cheap as hell to produce since you're already printing these up anyways, just tack on a few extra dozen/hundred. You would probably end up paying more to ship those out than whatever you're paying to manufacture them.

I imagine alot of people would end up just making foamcore inserts, so the plastic inserts wouldn't even be necessary, though some people may want those included.

Jup, same here.
However, the biggest challenge will be packaging them so they arrive undamaged. Because if I purchase a box, I want it in best condition, of course...


However, I would DEFINITELY purchase at least one!

What are the dimensions of the new box vs the old box? Can the old box fit the new inserts or vice versa?

the new is slightly smaller (like, a few mm I think), so the old box can definitely hold the new inserts. But the new one probably can't hold the old insert.

Will the battlefoam custom Cthulhu Wars trays fit in the new box?

I don't know, but I wouldn't bet on it.
