New year, new project, new focus on the core mission: Wargaming that is cheap, portable, storable, and fun.
We'll get into the nitty-gritty later on this week. For now, here's our goal - put together a fun wargame that can fit completely within a fairly small box. So let's see what box we have to work with.
The big box store sells small boxes that are just the right size for a ream of letter sized paper for just a couple bucks. This blue number is about nine inches by 11 inches by 2 inches, and it fits into a slightly larger box...
...pretty snug. The blue boxes will work great for a pair of matched armies, and I can use the rest of the space for a drop cloth battlemat, terrain, dice, and rules.
