The pawn boxes fit beautifully into the two recesses in the game boards body and are removable so that when you are playing the game each of the two players can keep their pawn box near them.
The game comes with 14 pawns (7 light - 7 dark), four Triangular Dice and instructions.
These games are custom made when they are ordered so please allow 2-4 weeks for construction. I am a one man operation and I build all of my games myself. I take great pride in my work and want to do it right and that can take some time. I have every confidence that you will be thrilled with the finish product. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
The board measures 19" inches long, 8" inches wide and 6" inches tall.
