Steve Jackson Games is bringing back the 80’s with Pocket Box Games on Kickstarter

Pocket Box Games, as they sound, are games designed for and packaged in small plastic boxes that are easily transported so you can bring them with you anywhere.  How big are the boxes?  They measure a mere 4.25 inches in one direction, 7.25 inches in the other, and only 2 inches thick.  This puts it in the same size class as the Tiny Epic series of games, meaning they will be highly portable and you could easily bring several of them without much effort.  But enough about the box, what about the games?

The games they are packaging in these boxes are what really bring back the 80’s as they are reprinting classic SJG titles for these boxes.  The initial titles (not including stretch goals) are Illuminati, Ogre, GEV, Battlesuit, Car Wars, Truck Stop, and Crash City.  Also since they are wanting to really relive the time, they are making minimal to no additions or changes to these games so they will play like they did back in the day, although with a “2019 Reproduction” stamp on components so you can tell editions apart.  However, they did depart from the original in one way, and that’s the price.  Each pocket box game will cost you $20 plus shipping, with discounts for buying in sets of 4.  Also available are just empty pocket boxes themselves, that way if you have the original but the box is beat up and busted, you can just get the new and improved box at $10 per pair of boxes.

So if you are looking for some gold from Steve Jackson Games’ past in a brand new box, check out the Kickstarter page today!
