Blue wooden storage box
« on: May 06, 2020, 12:45:16 PM »
Many years ago, bought big blue storage boxes from Carcassonne, in which almost al big expansion could fit.

It was not an official release from Cundco but I guess made with permission. Is there anyone with some more info about this?

Thanks!

It is an old photo. Now I have restructured my collection and there I only keep carcassonne with a watermark and yellowish green tiles. I bought it in 2009 if I remember correctly. At the time it was designed for expansions to the Big expansion of the abbey and the mayor... The good thing is that the tower fits and you can put two rows of tiles inside if you want ...

I remember that they had a website called carcassonne-box.com or something like that. They didn't have more than one box I think I remember. Just one. There are also plenty of velvet cloth bags to store the meeples and the closure is metallic yes. But on the web I remember that they only sold one model. I don't understand why you say we tell you more information if you have three in your possession. It seems strange to me.

Unfortunately not, you would have to find it on second hand market, and I guess it won't be easy

I'm using two boxes. One from Basic game for tiles and tower. And secodn from 1.st expansion for all meeples, rules, tokens etc.
But I'm goingo to buy big expansion with bridges. So I thing there will be not enough place for wooden bridges.
I have a plan for this summer to create box like this blue one, where deviders will be from wood but it will have fabric for protect tiles for demage.
Check JCloisterZone Add-ons with fan expansions and also some Slovak sci/fi projects in English https://www.scifi.sk/en/

to protect the tiles at the bottom of the boxes, I place scraps of leather that I glue, it's absolutely great to protect the tiles (the scraps come from old sofas that people throw just cut a piece with a cutter)

the leather is easy to cut either with scissors or with a cutter, and bonding is very simple
(the pieces of leather to be recovered from the sofas are the back which is the least worn part)
