For shipping purposes, your game will need to be case-packed. A case (sometimes called a carton) is simply a rigid cardboard box that holds several units of your game. The cases will be stacked onto a pallet for easy shipping and storage.
Your manufacturer will give you options of how you want your game case-packed. You will need to decided how many units of your game go into a case and in what orientation. Keep in mind these considerations:
