We often hear about games that come in seemingly ridiculously oversized boxes (I'm looking at you IDW). But are there any games that you wish came in bigger boxes? I"m not talking about to allow room for expansions, just that you get a new game, unpack it and pop out all the cardboard bits and then... spend half an hour trying to puzzle it back into the box!

Just a few mm extra in the depth would have been nice!

Well known problem for this game is that box lid can't be closed fully. OK, one solution is to remove plastic insert, but all cards have special places in it (like Dominion).

I received sleeves from TMG - when the cards are sleeved they don't allow the box to close. arrrh

Especially the first edition, before the deeper box.

Ridiculous box, it took as long to figure out how to pack away as it did to play a game. I reckon they made the box, then someone as an afterthought suggested the Petri dishes.

So, may seem a bit of an odd one. But I pimped my copy of resistance by sleeving the cards and putting stickers on to make the Avalon roles. It doesn't fit in the insert now properly and regularly explodes.

This is by far the biggest box on my shelf, and yet I still have trouble getting all the pieces back in!
