I was browsing through an issue of Martha Stewart’s Real Simple magazine when I read this:
You’ve been down the chutes and up the ladders, and the box has seen better days.”
This caught my attention because I’ve got a handful of board games whose boxes have definitely seen better days!
Martha recommends these…
Whether the box to your favorite board game has been damaged or you just want a more durable and organized way to store it, Game Savers are the answer!
These containers are made from durable polypropylene.
They’re great because game pieces are kept neat and organized in individual compartments and the box itself is practically indestructible (…compared to cardboard boxes).
There are 3 shapes and styles of Game Saver.
Choose the one that “fits” the games listed below (…or similar board games).
Deep Box Game Savers
These replacement boxes will hold the playing board and all the game accessories to current editions (1999 and later) of Monopoly, Life, Risk, Colorforms and Silly Noises.
Shallow Box Game Savers
