Board Game Box: Custom Wooden Storage Box for Ares Games "War of the Ring" + Expansions; Handcrafted, Decorated w/ Wood-burned Art and Logos

$543.75 $725.00

Protect your copy of the popular and incredibly challenging Ares Games' "War of the Ring" or "Battle of the Five Armies" board games within a sturdily constructed and beautifully decorated wooden box. Whether a player owning just the base game, or a collector owning all the available expansions as well as third-party, 3D printed add-ons, this box can serve as a striking decorative piece as well as a wooden vault for all of the game's components.

• HANDCRAFTED with pyrographed artwork
• FREE SHIPPING with insurance for Domestic U.S. orders
• LEAD TIME: 10 weeks (from time of purchase to shipping day; timeframes can be affected by workload, holidays, etc. – please refer to the Shop Announcement for posted info
on creation time frames, or inquire via messages if a specific due date is needed).
• ARTWORK AVAILABLE: As shown; all artwork will be sourced from the game it is created for.
Some pieces originally done by artist John Howe (well-known for his LotR work) will be integrated with the game logo and icons - the map of Middle Earth, as shown, may be similarly replaced or even used as a background for a Howe illustration. All artwork is performed by hand, and will vary greatly from box to box. Of course, requests for specific placement of art is possible; artwork will be located on the top panel, front, and sides. No artwork will be present on the rear/back side.
• MEASUREMENTS: 20x12.5x9 inches [LxWxH] (completed/assembled product). This box is very large - easily capable of holding two core games (original box included) within, plus expansions and third party fan-made extras, such as map terrain.
• ADDITIONAL NOTES / INFO: Box is created as a slip-over lid type (known as "telescope"). Upon construction, box walls are a very sturdy .6875-inch thick, with a .25-inch top panel and inset .125-inch bottom panel.

}> At this time, inner compartments and organizational components are NOT AVAILABLE; the box is completely felted on the interior, and could easily hold most commercially-produced organizers such as those from Broken Token, or from other Etsy sellers or DIY.


PLEASE NOTE: All of my items are crafted by me, in my home studio and workshop. I am a one-man show, with no ‘production partners’ to help mass-produce any item (though I will source pawns, etc. from quality reputable dealers). Be assured that when you buy an item from me, you are getting a distinctive creation from the original maker. Given the inherent nature of the handcrafted work, time frames for more complex creations, whether the complexity is the art, the build, or a combination of both, can be extensive. Please be patient; I communicate and update customers regularly with the status of their unique creation(s).

Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

Due to the nature of the majority of my work, and the typical amount of business that comes through my shop, wholesale items are not available.

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me before placing an order should you desire customizations not outlined or offered in any particular listing.

Holiday ordering

During the Christmas holiday season, I can quickly become VERY busy; typically putting in 12 hour days in order to make holiday shipping deadlines.
Please plan ahead - I begin taking Christmas orders in late August, but due to workload, I will close the shop to further made-to-order requests the first week of December. Ready to ship items remain listed and ship as stated in their listing.

Shipping times

In the case of any custom or Made To Order item, I try very hard to meet the listed production/ship time for the listed item. However, I am a one-man shop, and the handcrafted nature of the work, particularly during busy periods, can cause delays. If you require your item by a specific date, please inquire first. I do not rush the work, as I want each piece to be exceptional and worthy to the person purchasing it. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and of course, your patronage!

Handcrafted game box for my beloved War Of The Ring accessories. Not many things are one of a kind these days but this item is. Seller shared pictures during the build process. If you are looking to purchase do it. You won’t be disappointed.
