I don't have space to build more game shelves in my gasement (gaming basement). To deal with this issue I put several of my games in bitboxs and placed the original boxes in storage in my attic. The issue is the games are sort of out of sight out of mind. Here is my solution. The game box top wall decoration!



Kind of a silly thing but I thought I would share.

Looks great! That's a lot more fun to look at than a cement block wall.

Love this. Been thinking about doing something similar in our new studio. Side note: China is a baller old school game. Long been looking to get a copy.

Yeah, China is awesome! the design is super elegant and you really have to think about how other people at the table are playing. I hope someone reprints or reimplements it because it totally deserves it.

Thanks for the compliment, Christina!

The idea was that it would be reversible and changeable. I do have some fear that the pressure of the binder clips will mark the box tops a bit but we will see. Everythings is holding up really nicely so far.

I might make a smaller one to put up as well with all the small card game boxes I have.
