Boxed Culture: What’s in the Box, Literally…

What’s in the Box, Literally… As we buy games, we start to notice things about them. The production value of the components from certain companies. The art that is used to portray theme and setting. Sometimes we even start to notice weird things. The thing I noticed lately is how some companies […]


Boxed Culture: Archon Games at DCC 2018   Recently updated !

Archon Games at DCC 2018 I had the pleasure of going to Denver Comic Con this weekend and while there is not usually a ton of board gaming at DCC, there was one massive booth on the edge of the Merchant Mesa.  This booth was for a company called Archon Games. It was […]

Boxed Culture: Minis Versus Models 1

Minis Versus Models If you’re involved in our hobby at all you know that adding miniatures to your games makes it significantly more buyable. This isn’t just from seeing the Kickstarter hype over Bloodrage or Conan. This is true even from games published without the help of backers. We see […]


Boxed Culture: The Literal Table-top 1

The Literal Table-top We play games all over the place. From dirty metal bar tables to felted wooden beasts built for the sole purpose of having games played on them. Sometimes we dont really care where we play but we all have at the very least a preference on the […]
