2012 Allen & Ginter BoxBreaker - Download Now!

Hey everyone.  The solution for logging your Allen & Ginter boxes is back again this year.  Last year's version was very helpful. 

This year, I have again produced a regular BoxBreaker version:

There are several notes columns for anything you may want to track.  I've also added a sheet that puts the pack breakdown in a more simple text making it easy to copy and paste into your blog, a forum, or anywhere else.

I've also made a BoxBreaker that is slightly more tuned to Gint-A-Cuffs.  I considered making the scoring automated, but it was too much work for not enough reward.  However, this one does have preset categories and a total score column.  The screenshot below is an example of how I use the sheet.

While the math is still done by hand, having a place to make notations is very helpful.  

In addition to the BoxBreaker tool, I've also created a collapsible checklist for 2012 Allen & Ginter:

Hopefully you will find some of this useful.  I have successfully used the BoxBreaker tool for several different checklists, including 2008 A&G Hobby, 2008 UD A Piece of History Hobby, and 2008 UD Heroes Blasters.  During last year's Gint-A-Cuffs, I even entered the cards as I opened them on video.

I find that the tool is especially helpful for a large, diverse set like Allen & Ginter.

Feel free to download any of these tools:
