There are several Altoids game tins online; this is my contribution.  The goal here was to stuff as many games and activities into the tin as possible, while still having a full-sized chess/checkers board for game play.  Here are the contents of the kit:
  • Folding checkers & chess board with reversible pieces
  • Mini card deck
  • 6 mini dice
  • Pick-up sticks
  • Two pencils and a small notepad
  • Cat's cradle string
  • Two small marbles
The game pieces are actually mini poker chips with chess symbols glued onto one side.  The mini poker chips, dice, and cards were all purchased from Amazon.
