On Monday, I got a package in the mail with an important component to my game: the bag. Each game will come with a nice soft brown leather bag (actually, I’m not really sure of the material) with a cool authentic texture. They look much better in person than they do in the picture on the seller’s website. I’ll post a picture of it when I get the other components. Everything about them seemed great, except…

Cinching the bag closed still left enough of an opening that contents could fall out! If there’s one thing you want your bag to do, it’s hold things inside securely. My first solution was to tie the drawstrings once, like I did for my prototype’s bag. Unfortunately, the drawstring on the bag was made of a thin silky material and would not stay tied. To be honest, I didn’t think this would be a problem. I am going to wait until I get the other components to check if they will actually fall out. If they still do, I have a solution where I’d replace the drawstrings with a more tie-able material. String is cheap, and I’d rather take the time to replace it than have players lose their components each time they put their game on the shelf.

Now we wait for the other components…
