The BGG "versions" for this game currently show the box dimensions as "Long Rectangle (e.g. Power Grid) · 14.60 x 10.70 x 2.20 inches or 37.1 x 27.2 x 5.6 cm". Watching Rahdo's runthrough, that doesn't seem right at all. It appears to be square, so perhaps the size of Ticket to Ride?

A TtR square box might be doable for me. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be willing to shelve a PG-sized monstrosity for a little card+dice game like this.

If you can measure the box, please let me know the true dimensions, and go ahead and submit a correction while you're at it. Thanks!

Looks like a 30 cm x 30 cm square box to me.

I am pretty sure it's T2R sized.

It sure looks like a T2R sized box, which is a bummer. As soon as I buy they game, I'll toss away that huge oversized box.
I have limited shelvespace and prefer portability. Looking at the amount and type of components, the box could be less than half that size. And since we mostly play 2 player only, I can even downsize it more by taking out half of the dice and almost half of the cards :-D

You won't want to take out half the dice.

I haven't measured it, but i'm eyeballing it right now and it's the exact same size as the other bezier games big boxes (Subrubia, Favor of the Pharaoh, Subdivision, Mad King Ludwig)

Thanks! It looks like the change has already been made: Colony (English first edition)

But there must be some cacheing or a batch script that hasn't run yet, because the main game page still shows the larger box size. I trust that will self-correct eventually.
