Board games become notorious for a host of reasons; for being great, for being fiendishly challenging or for having hundreds of parts!
Arkham Horror always comes to mind as a game which ends up sprawling across even the largest of tables. Etsy creator Tower Rex has a better idea, though. Why not turn the space requirements of Arkham Horror into something theme-appropriate and have the looming menace of a great old one out on the table.
Tower Rex’s Arkham Horror card dispenser is on sale right now but usually retails for around £25.
The company is in Ukraine, which might be why they’re not so well known here in the West; otherwise, I’m sure their detailed and affordable wooden cardholders would be everywhere.
There are 11 cells to hold the cards in and any cards of 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ – 57 x 89mm which fit. As a result, the cardholder can cope with sleeved cards.
The catch? As you might expect, the great old one is a flat pack. It doesn’t come built when it ships to you. Tower Rex says it takes about 15 minutes to clip together and secure with glue.
Shipping time is measured in weeks; about 2-5 for Europe and 3-6 for North America and Australia.
