The Box was an enormous structure constructed by the mastermind criminal Moralo Eval at Dooku's palace on Serenno. It was made to test the skill of bounty hunters, for which purpose Eval and Count Dooku employed it during the Clone Wars.
- "The Box is a challenge simulator made of shifting panels, and behind those panels is lots and lots of pain in one form or another."
- ―Arack "Deadeye" Dostryt on the Box
The Box took the form of a cube with several internal cubical rooms. Each room was outfitted with a given set of puzzle traps, ranging from dioxis to electrified laser blades, ray shielded walls and flamethrowers. There was a total of five levels. The configuration of these rooms could be controlled from a command center located either somewhere within or nearby the structure or from a controller mounted on Moralo Eval's wrist.
- "Your box does not appear to be as much of a challenge as I thought. Perhaps I should put Hardeen in charge of the mission."
"But, this was my plan. You promised me the lead role."
"You have one last test to change my mind."
"Do not fear, Count Dooku. I will show you who is weak."

Around 21 BBY, bounty hunters Sinrich, Jakoli, Mantu, Onca, Kiera Swan, and Sixtat lost their lives during a competition. The only five survivors would then be the ones who participate in the plot against Chancellor Palpatine.
The Box was later acquired by the Bounty Hunters' Guild and during the reign of the Galactic Empire, new applicants to the Guild were required to survive the Box as part of an initiation test. Boba Fett believed it to later come under the control of the Hutts, who used it as a source of entertainment and torturing enemies.
