Hey everyone!

I am interested in starting doing my own inserts for my favourite games.

However, apart from foam core inserts, I have a few games for which I want to do playing card covers/boxes. Is this easily done? Are there any guides?

Are there any other types of arrangements/inserts that are useful - apart from foam core inserts (For cards, meeples, tiles, boards etc)?

Thanks in advance,
Markus

For playing cards, it sounds like you're talking about tuck boxes. Here's a link to a good "How To".

Also you can try no glue telescoping paper box. There are different sizes templates for Photoshop.

Thank you!

those look nice! I will look into the different methods. Hopefully, my printer will be sufficient

I did a video tutorial a short while ago on making small boxes for games; it covers regular tuckboxes and two varieties of telescoping box - the two-part boxes where one part slides over the top of the other:

There a few more ideas on the BGG Tuck Boxes wiki.
