This bespoke board game manufactured by MW Luxury Packaging was a Christmas gift of the design agency Stranger & Stranger. A twisted take on Snakes & Ladders, “The Game of Stranger” was inspired by Game of Thrones and centres around the themes of lust and death.
The game consists of a rigid board outer box wrapped in custom uncoated stock. Embossed side panels were crafted to resemble snakeskin; further serpent imagery can be found in the hot-stamped gold foil detailing and “forked tongue” ribbon attachment.
Out of the tertiary case slips another box where the game components nestle in black suede. Here you’ll find the board, two copper 8-sided dice, snakeskin-patterned rulebooks, and a set of acrylic eyeball tokens in a custom-printed case.
The board itself is backed with blind embossed black suede. On the front is a complex graphic print; multiple layers of embossing, debossing, foils and varnish combine for a richly textured finish.
