This game looks pretty interesting to me but is that what the box is really shaped like? My space in my little office is limited and I am getting a bit tired of off shaped boxes. I just don't have room for a ton of boxes that don't stack together. shake

I think that's the point he's making, that it's NOT a standard size game box.

I have so many boxes of different sizes, I don't even honestly know what a standard game box is anymore. Dominion?

Looks good to me and I can find space for it. Could be worse...it could have been packaged in a coffin box! wow

also, after unpacking you can cary all you need to play in your codex. Easy to carry in your bag or store on the book shelf.

Just think of it as a mini game between sessions, Like Tetris . . .

It's one of those things you can't understand unless you live in a place that has limited space to store things. I've actually culled games from my collection before because they were in irregular boxes and prevented me from being able to store games in an easy manner (well, that, and they were tied with a game in a regular box for my affection).

But yes, it's a serious complaint people can make, and it's really annoying for some of us with limited space for our collections.

"Off shaped size" has very little to do do with limited space. If you want to get technical, Serpent's Tongue has the perfect box, because there's literally NO space left inside. So if your complaint is a lack of space for games, you should point fingers at every other box in your collection

Have you thought about getting a plastic container with a lid that would fit the area so you could store all the odd shaped boxes together and still have a "normal" sized box?

Not true. I have a shelf on which I need to keep my games contained. I can hold exactly 2 games, side by side, if they're the normal 12x12 box. If it's a Mage Knight-sized box, I can fit those and an Agricola-sized box on a shelf. If I have a box that's off-shaped size, that's going to prevent me from neatly stacking the boxes on the shelf, and I'm not going to be able to maximize that space. The original Summoner Wars Master Set wrought havoc on my shelf because of it's non-standard size.

I guess the question would be, can you put it in a "long term storage" elsewhere? That way you could setup your codex, which is much smaller and more book sized, and leave the majority of it in a long term storage area (Like under the bed, the safe, the foot locker, what have) and not on your nice clean shelf.

I feel your pain, while storage space isn't my exact issue, storage neatness does annoy me.
