The box is dreadful, but doesn't detract from gameplay. Do not, for any reason, allow the box to go vertical.

I must be lucky. I store my box on edge, slid into an ottoman with room on both sides and haven't ever had a problem

Buy the expansion, get rid of the expansion insert and move everything over to the new box. I did it this week and it works well.

Or the box is so bad you now use an ottoman as one.

Is the expansion box "normal"?

I store my box on its side and have never had any problems. I actually like the box design.

Seriously, worst.design.ever! I dint want to store a box flat, I want to store it on end like my other games. I have limited space, and a game with deliberate corner spilt, custom insert that is non usable imo is terrible design. I will have to see how much I like it, anything below 7/10 after a few games and I think I will have to trade it away. If I like it then I will throw the insert. Currently everything is in bags to keep it neat.

Sans insert, EVERYTHING fits in the expansion box perfectly. I use that box now to store both original and expansion. It's almost half the height of the original, and is slightly cooler looking IMO. I stack games flat also, and box height is a big factor for me.

So does this mean you'd keep a crappy game just because it has a good box? shake

First world problems I guess.

Personally I am sure I have some sub-par games that I hang on to just because I have room

I happen to like LoW and its crazy box, but I have ample space on my shelf to not only keep a few extra games but also to wow lay them flat.

No not at all. To keep a game I need it to be a game I like to play AND be able to actually store it somewhere. I have very limited space for games, a small cupboard unit, maybe a meter wide and 60cm deep. I keep larger boxes at the back and small boxes at the front. Above is a shelf with big box games but to get a space there it has stiff competition. It is currently in the space left as I have lent hamsterrolle to friends. There is no chance of it permanently ousting that. I can't afford the expansion at the moment, so I have stuck everything in bags and have put then under the insert.

The box is gorgeous. GORGEOUS.

But it is coming apart at the edges already and I have barely had the thing for a few weeks.
