Description Edit | History

This is the later 'soap box' edition from SPI, introduced to present their games in a more positive manner in retail outlets where they would often be facing a direct comparison with Avalon Hill 'bookcase box' games. The earlier generic plastic 'flat tray' or ziploc bag (a/k/a Z-Pack') with a cover sheet allowed the game maps to be folded in six, but the 'soap box' editions needed maps folded in eight to fit inside the box. Similarly, the standard 400 chit counter sheets could fit as is in the earlier packaging but needed to be cut/folded in half to give two 200 chit sections for the later box. Otherwise the components are identical with the earlier edition.
