Paper or Plastic? How to Create Less Waste in Game Shipments

In December 2021, I received a review copy of Berried Treasure from Restoration Games in the most visually arresting packaging that I've ever seen:

From gallery of W Eric Martin

The material above was shipped in a box, mind you, but the box contained only the game wrapped in this cardboard weave, and the box itself lacked shrinkwrap. This got me thinking about other packages that I've received in the past few months, so I created this short video to encourage shippers to move toward less wasteful shipping methods, something several European publishers have already adopted.


As for Berried Treasure, I've played three times so far, but only with two players — and the game features special rules for two players that I haven't found satisfying. I need more plays with more players to develop a more rounded opinion...
