Um, the title says it all.

I am adding quite a few new games and the vast majority are just a tuck box with cards.

I'm tired of entering 9x7x3 centimeters manually and it also seems as a box size standard enough to warrant a pre-definition.

A standard deck size for which company?
The single deck tuck boxes in my shelf are all 9x6 cm, with a thickness of either 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5cm.

Of any company. Single deck tuckboxes are 9x6 or 9x6,5. Various thicknesses.

What's interesting is if it's a single deck tuckbox or not. This might seem like heresy to OCD:ers, but whether it's 2cm or 4cm thick isn't really the issue. What you wonder is if the deck is a single-deck, rouble or quadruple sized box.

For OCD:ers, I advice you to not trust that the dimensions I offer are better than 1cm margin, larger if the box is larger.

Where by "you" you mean "I", right?

Uh… yeah. Precisely.

But seriously, if you back a bit, unless you are someone who wonders how many copies of the game will fit in a suitcase, what you (not meaning "I") want is an approximate measure. Is is large, or small? Typically, for card games, is it a single tuckbox or a double? Many game shops divide games according to box size, what should I look for?

Not that I can't imagine any situation in which the exact measures aren't important, but generally, it's not important down to the centimeter. Truthfully, it's much more important (at least for me) if it is a tuckbox with a flap, or if it is a miniature card box with a lid.

I can continue entering 9cmx7cmx3cm manually instead of clicking "single deck tuckbox", but trust me, that measure isn't reliable. Many are 6.5cm wide, Some are 2.5cm thick, some 3.5cm. It would be actually a lot better if "single deck tuckbox" meant just that, an approx.
