I just moved and with the move comes the mandatory breakdown of my collection's shelves and inevitable resetting.

I was able to fit most of my games pretty well onto the shelves. Many boxes are roughly the same shape and size, so it makes storing easy.

However, there are a few games that DON'T want to be like the others.

This is my tribute to those boxes.

I can't believe no one's added this. It a huge SQUARE box that no book shelf (at least none at IKEA ) is deep enough for.

The lid doesn't fit well and the bottom is the board, which is hollow so can't be stacked on smaller boxes. Everything spills out because of the shape of the board. Finally the box lid splits easily (even though it is pretty solid cardboard) and there is a plastic lip around the bottom.

Everything about this box is painful, and the game is only okay; it makes deciding to keep it a real chore.

Games, games and more games!

This box has caused more damage than any other box in our collection. Not only is it a very annoying size - small and square - it also it quite heavy and has very sharp corners, which means that when it falls off the top of the bookshelf where we usually store it, it has the tendency to damage whatever it falls on - whether that be a toe, or another gamebox (and unfortunately, once recently the gamebox damaged wasn't one of our own games ).

The box is just a bit longer than the standard 16" box so it hangs over the edge of the shelf causing to constantly get bumped into.

I know that there are dozens of versions of this, but the one I have is the sole reason I can't completely close the doors on my game cabinet. Very wide box.

Love the game, but the cube-shaped box can be a challenge. It hasn't actually gone onto the shelf in the week it's been here, so... we'll see. If it stays popular enough to remain in the heavy-rotation stack, it's no problem at all....

This is the only box size I haven't been able to find another one alike. No wonder it's not on my shelves as I can't match it with anything else - not that it would fit anyway, given how long this box is.
