A couple of months back I decided to design a laser-cut wooden box to hold all of my cards from "Cards Against Humanity". After making one, I realized it would also work nicely for other card games like Magic: The Gathering, Dominion, etc.
I also recently ordered a laser cutter to help with some of the other projects I've been designing and selling. So, I wondered what would happen if I posted my card box on Kickstarter to help earn funds to pay for this laser cutter. Anything I made would help, so I set the funding goal to $1,000 dollars.
We hit that in 1 hour!
Thirty days later, my project had 600 backers and over $34,000 in pledges! I had no idea that something as simple as a box to hold cards would be so popular. Turns out lots of people like custom gaming accessories and this simple box filled a need.
The project is now over, but its not too late to get in on the action. If you're interested in a box or kit, you can sign up using the link below and you'll be put into the queue to receive one after the other rewards are fulfilled.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the project and anyone thinking about ordering a box!
