When I buy games, having a small package really helps it to be overlooked by Customs officers. And if the games are all about the same size, it's easier to put them into a smaller box, with less empty space. I have already created a list of games with small boxes, but I intend to be more specific here. Slim boxes are also great to save storage space! So, I'd like to know which games use a similar average-size rectangular slim box. If you add an item, choose a box photo, if possible.

Seeing this was going out of print, I hurried to get my copy. From the price, I assumed it should be a small box, like the Silver Line from Fantasy Flight, and ordered it with Tower of Babel, which I assumed to be Carcassonne size, and Shadows over Camelot. I was wrong in both cases, and the package was much bigger than I wanted it to be. The box of Emerald was surprisingly slim, though, and I realized I should have bought it with Fearsome Floors.

I played it just the other day and was surprised to see it had this slim box.

I've heard this is a slim box, too, but is it about the same length and width as the games above?

EDIT: I eventually got the game and confirm it is the same size.

I took this photo. The game box for this one looks like your normal Avalon Hill game box in every way but the box is only about half the size. That's the regular sized Avalon Hill game Maharaja under it in the photo.

I got the game unpunched for $5 on Ebay and was fully expecting a normal sized Avalon Hill box from pictures I'd seen of the game so I had to laugh when this little box shows up.

All games of the Kosmos 2 player series are slim, too.
Let's say as slim as Fearsome Floors.

I picked this up as a points prize on GameTableOnline.com and was amazed at how small the box was.
