Geekbox: the review

Geekbox: the review


One of the most important goals in managing your board game collection is to keep the components tidy in the box. This passion for order has two origins: the first is inherent in the enthusiast, who tries to keep their games in the best possible way, ordered in a compulsive and almost (indeed often) maniacal way. The second is of practical origin: correctly divided and well ordered components save a lot of time in the preparation of the game and, often, also during the game.

Double box It often happens that by opening a box, perhaps full up on the edge of components, it turns out that the publisher has not paid great attention to these aspects: the interior is not shaped, there are few sachets to contain the objects that, inevitably, mix with each other in a primordial chaos or , horror of horrors, the material must simply be thrown as it is in the box (according to the most extremist fringes, the details for a complaint would be present here).

The Geekbox line

Geekbox is one of the products designed to solve the anxieties of many players who, when they open the boxes of their games, involuntarily hold their breath waiting to see how the content has mixed without hope of redemption.

if (jQuery ("# crm_srl- th_culturapop_d_mh2_1 "). is (": visible ")) {console.log (" Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_culturapop_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_culturapop_d_mh2 "); } As you can easily guess from the name, Geekboxes are small containers for storing the various components of board games, which can then be placed in boxes to keep everything tidy and ready for use.

There are three products, called Regular, Slim and Double, depending on the size: the regular ones are square, 73 mm on the side at the base and 30 mm high; the slim have the same base, but are only 20 mm high; finally the doubles have a rectangular base, 105 by 73 mm and are 30 mm high. These three sizes adapt very well to the different types of boxes used for games and allow to contain almost all types of existing components.

The three sizes All the boxes are made of transparent plastic and have both on the lid, both on the base, the outline of a cross; this element has two functions: the first is to allow the boxes to be stacked together, keeping them firm and stable, the second is to act as a stop for the lids which, once opened, can be positioned under the boxes, avoiding to leave them around. This design element is a small touch of class that gives great added value over the option of using boxes of various shapes and origins collected here and there.

if (jQuery ("# ​​crm_srl-th_culturapop_d_mh3_1") .is (": visible")) {console.log ("Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_culturapop_d_mh3_1 slot id: th_culturapop_d_mh3"); } It is also possible to stack slim and regular boxes between them, while the double, due to the enlarged base, are "compatible" only with themselves.


The Geekboxes are made of transparent plastic of a fairly low thickness. The result is solid enough, while maintaining a small footprint. The lids close with an interlocking mechanism that does not allow accidental opening and the shapes on the lids and bases, as already mentioned, allow for stable stacking. The choice of colorless plastics without frills proves to be excellent in use because it allows you to easily recognize the content.

The components are easily recognizable


The Geekboxes are a well-studied accessory, in their simplicity and essentiality. The cost might seem a bit high, calculating the number of boxes necessary to correctly divide all the components of the richest games, but in reality it proves to be competitive with respect to the alternatives present in such a small market as that of "organizers".

Suitable for

if (jQuery ("# ​​crm_srl-th_culturapop_d_mh4_1"). is (": visible")) {console.log ("Edinet ADV adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_culturapop_d_mh4_1 slot id : th_culturapop_d_mh4 "); } As the name of the product says, the Geekboxes are accessories with a very specific target audience: that of the Geeks of board games. These people can only consider the boxes as natural and essential extensions of their games; probably (and incomprehensibly) they will be considered inessential accessories by all other types of players.
