Legendary Box

The Scythe Legendary Box is designed to hold the Scythe core game plus all expansions (present and future), accessories, promos, and custom inserts. We were inspired to create this box thanks to the feedback from people on this blog post.

The box features a dual-layered bottom half and a top that is the exact same dimensions as all other Scythe tops, allowing backers and fans of the original top to use it interchangeably with the new top.

While the Legendary Box does not include any game components, it contains 3 large tuckboxes for storing tokens, cards, and other loose pieces. It has a $25 MSRP.

Because the Legendary Box (STM634) has the same length and width of all other Scythe boxes, all custom inserts fit perfectly inside of it. However, it’s double the height of the original Scythe box, adding much more room.

The Legendary Box features the following:

  • 1 giant box (300x365x196mm)
  • 3 tuckboxes (70x289x118mm)

The Legendary Box will be available in limited quantities from the following retailers on December 5. Of course, if we sell out and you tell us you want more, we’ll make more.

    1. Our international partners are free to choose an MSRP that allows them to be profitable, especially with the cost of freight shipping. It’s surprisingly expensive to make this box! :)

    2. That’d be the Australia Tax kicking in as per usual. Sadly for something this size it doesn’t look likely to be able to save anything by sourcing from overseas, since the first one of the US partners I checked wanted about $45 postage to ship the box to Australia.

    3. Hello, is this “legendary box” compatible with the “Scythe – Box Organizer” ?
      Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your work

  1. How do the 3 tucked in boxes work? Are they split by expansion or by component type?
    I guess my main question is, should I keep my current expansion box and the wind gambit when it comes out or is this designed to just store the content, not the box itself?

    1. algirdyz: The 3 tuckboxes aren’t made for any specific component type–they’re just meant to help prevent lots of loose components from sliding around inside the box. I would recommend keeping everything you have until you get the Legendary Box so you can decide what’s best for you.

  2. I like how you listened to your fans and created something they want. I was wondering if it’ll be available at SPIEL ’17?

          1. Hmm…I’ll talk to them about that. There’s no way the box will arrive in time for Spiel unless they air freight it, which I highly doubt they’re going to do.

          2. This is Greg from The Broken Token. We’ve been running this “Pickup at Spiel” option for awhile, but unfortunately like Jamey mentioned, the box won’t be available in time for us to bring them. I’m not sure if our website will allow us to disable that shipping option for just this product. So please consider this a heads-up that we will not have them in Essen. We actually have to freight our products over there in a few weeks.

  3. I just preorder the box. Is it possible that you can add in it some new achievement sheet for the expansions?

  4. Pre-order for the SLB is already sold out in Canada.
    Will there be more later? Shipping from the US is more expensive than the box itself.

    1. Roy: That’s correct. We gave Meeplesource the option to carry it–I love working with them–but it’s much bigger than the items they typically send out, so it didn’t fit into their logistics system.

    2. Yeah wish Miniature Market was on the list too – I by a lot of stuff through them, probably including the new expansion. :(

        1. You have said for both Coolstuffinc and Miniature Market “just not a good fit for this product” are you willing/able to expand on what you mean by that? I know I’m trying figure out how to get a copy and not being available from either of them, or my local store is making it more difficult.

          1. Okay, so it’s not exactly that it’s not a good fit for them–it’s that it’s a better fit for companies that specialize in selling custom inserts and accessories. We offer a number of viable options in the US from which you can choose–it’s just as easy to order from any of those stores as it is from CSI or MM.

  5. Will this new BIG BOX house additional expansions beyond the 2 already released (Invaders and Wind Gambit)? I saw there is another expansion on the horizon. Just curious if this will solve all containment issues FOREVER. :) Thanks!

  6. Thank you so much for this! I just placed my Pre-Order with Broken Token, they are local so I can skip the shipping fees. It is odd how excited I am for this.

  7. Aah! It’s so nice that this will come also to Europe retailers (Docsmagic) :) Sometimes shipping boardgames from US to Finland has been almost as expensive as the game itself.

  8. I have the Broken Token box insert. Tight but fits everything…. so far, Looking forward to future upgrades. Will this expanded box still work with the insert I have? Thanks

  9. Any chance of seeing this on Amazon at MSRP – the shipping alone from these sellers majes it hard to justify the cost.

    1. Fontanet: It’s possible that some of the sellers listed above will sell it on Amazon, though they would likely increase the cost to cover shipping (someone has to pay for shipping! :) ). I would recommend that you consolidate an order of other stuff with your purchase of the box, whether it’s a custom insert, accessories, or other products.

      1. I think his point was that the above listed sellers have really bad shipping options/prices and Amazon (itself, not those sellers on Amazon) might have much better shipping options. A sentiment I agree with especially since I live in Europe, but not the EU and apparently, this is really hard to ship to for the majority of sellers.

        1. That’s a fair point, though I’m not aware of any partner that is overcharging on shipping. As far as I know, they’re all charging a fair price based on what they need to pay the courier. If there is such a partner, please let me know about it.

          I’ve worked with Amazon fulfillment before, and I’m confident they would not properly pack these boxes, and they would arrive damaged.

          1. Well, the problem is that these couriers simply do not offer a good shipping option to certain countries (including charging VAT even if it does not apply). For example, i can offer totally fair prices for a shipment and not add anything for my own gain, and it may still be a bad option because I only offer a very expensive one instead of a cheaper (and perhaps slower) option.

  10. Will there be one type of Legendary Box or will there be localized versions?
    Mainly asking since I’ll order from a non-English-website and I don’t wanna end up with anything else than English… :(

    1. The tuckboxes aren’t really designed to hold a specific component, just loose components in general. However, as you can see from the dimensions listed above, there’s plenty of room for them for the biggest cards in Scythe (70x110mm) whether or not they’re sleeved.

  11. I’m 99% certain this will receive a ‘no comment’, but given that Invaders fit into the base box, and the known size of Wind Gambit……are we to believe that the final expansion is going to be BIG?

    1. Curry: Nope, no insert, as we wanted to be respectful of all of the custom insert companies who have poured extensive resources into making nice inserts for Scythe (Stonemaier gains nothing from those custom inserts other than happy fans). You can, however, transfer the plastic inserts that come in Scythe and the expansions over to the Legendary Box.

      1. I ask because I really like your games but none of my local retailers carries them so I am stuck shopping for them online or at Cool Stuff (which is sometimes the same thing and sometimes isn’t – depending on whether I want to drive 2 hours for a game). While it’s great that there are these other retailers, they’re all going to charge me for shipping unless I spend some amount of money there, which I get. But it’s extremely unlikely that I will ever meet that threshold at another retailer.

        1. Yeah, shipping is a problem for a big box like this. My hope is that people are able to consolidate the purchase with other stuff they want for these companies. Even if it doesn’t get them free shipping, it’ll drive down the cost of shipping per item ordered.

  12. Jamey, it never fails to amaze me how thorough and holistic is your product design. You really listen to your audience, and think through the tiniest detail. I will be buying a big, empty box, and I will not apologize to anyone for how ridiculous that sounds. ;)

  13. is there any ONE site that i would be able to get ALL of the components including non cardboard components so i don’t have to spend as much time digging around to ensure i havn’t missed anything to pick up?

  14. now to decide on/if an organizer is needed……again all before i’ve even purchased the game and extra goodies. I’m such a tard, but i’ve got the box ordered at least :)

  15. Hi, may I check whether the legendary big box be able to hold the original collector box, ie keeping the entire original box inside the new legendary big box? I love the original box as well and wanted to keep it inside the new box while the other expansion on top of the original box if possible.

    1. The box features a dual-layered bottom half and a top that is the exact same dimensions as all other Scythe tops, allowing backers and fans of the original top to use it interchangeably with the new top.

      The Legendary Box isn’t big enough to fit the original box inside of it–otherwise the lid-replacement system mentioned here wouldn’t work.

  16. Hey Jamie! Thanks for making this box! It’s fantastic. I will definitely be buying one. I just have one request – please think of us on the western half of Canada next time! I’m glad that you chose a couple Canadian retailers, but both are in the east. Would you be willing to ship to a western retailer in the future? We have a gemreat one here in Edmonton – Apt to Game! Thanks!

    1. A New Zealand retailer would be good too, having to order from Australia so getting hit with some big shipping charges. Usually get games from Seriously Board but you haven’t used them this time (or any other NZ company?)

  17. This box is ridiculous. I bet it won’t even hold the 6 Automa Decks I’ll be getting. December release huh, blatant attempt to entice all those christmas spenders. Again, just ridiculous. Okay, where do I sign up?

  18. Hi Jamey,

    I just went to preorder one of these boxes from an Australian store and both of them are out of stock. Is there any chance they will be getting more or is that it for the number being shipped to Australia.

    Thanks,

    Dustin

    1. Thanks for your question, Dustin. We’ve already shipped the boxes to Australia (they’re on the way), so we can’t add more at this point. Feel free to let them know you want it, though, in case we’re able to make a reprint.
