0 Nuclear War Tuck Boxes
This is a tuck box for the Population cards. The version of the game I have is from a very long time ago. I do not know if the card sizes have changed at all over the years. If newer versions of the game do have different card sizes, please contact me and I will be happy to work with you to create tuck boxes of the appropriate size.
