Magic Maze insert 24 December 2017

I picked up Magic Maze and its expansion Maximum Security (as well as some promo tiles) at Essen. But how best to store them, preferably all in one box? To the 3D printer!

The box is 250mm square, larger than the parts my printer can produce, so I went for a modular approach. First up is a container for the room tiles.

I need two of those, one for the originals and one for the promos and expansion tiles.

Then a container for the direction cards, single-player and multi-player. The status card and sand timer fit on top.

Finally, a simple box to hold the other components. (I may eventually subdivide this, but I don't want to make the compartments too small.)

All of this fits into the original box, and keeps things a bit more organised than before. (And if they come up with another expansion that needs me to redesign some of these, I should be able to get away without reprinting everything.)

All of these are available at 3d.firedrake.org, though sadly expensive; when I have time I'll probably release them on thingiverse.
