Apologizes in advance if this has already been posted. A friend sent me this link and thought I would pass it along. This seems like a neat idea. Using game-boards as wall art, doubling as storage for the game.. Genius.

As decoration object this is a good idea.I like to see nice boards on my wall.

But What you will make with original game box ? I never like to send to the garbage and lost the original box of my games. If ı will put some where at home the original box, its not importent to store full or empty. That idea not offer a storage solution for me.

Oh I agree. I would never get rid of my original box. I just thought it was a neat thing that person did, and a creative way of showing off some of your favorite games.

Some people might thing this a sacrilegious idea, but maybe you could make that frame "double sided" by mounting the game board on one face and mounting the cut out box top on the other. Then you could display the pretty box top and flip the frame over to actually play the game.

Just a thought.

Yeah, the boxes need to stay to hold the bits. Can you imagine trying to clip the contents of Tales of the Arabian Nights or Steam in a baggie on the back of a frame? It would take a chunk of plaster out of the wall.

I noticed this link circulating also, and came to post it, alas too late.

I think the idea is brilliant. We all have games that are beautiful art in their own right. The best part is that you could use plexiglass or glass on top of the board, and the board is instantly spill resistant... not that I let anyone close to my games with a glass.

I could see doing this pretty easily with a game that you can fit all of the components into a Plano box but yea Arabian Nights or Steam would rip it off the wall.
