The original SPI packaging in 1976 was the plastic flat pack. Only after TSR bought out SPI did they bring out a cardboard box version under their own name.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Yes; I bought the very first edition and it came in a double plastic flat pack.

(And I still have the game.)

We few,we happy few,we band of brothers;For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother: be he ne’er so vile;And gentlemen in England now-abed Shall think themself accurs’d they were no here That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Not quite correct.
SPI brought out two versions,a double flatpack,and a Soap Box edition(#1310), I have them both

TSR brought out the 2nd edition only in a boxed version.
I have that too

Also;
SPI named their version:Terrible Swift Sword;The Three Days of Gettysburg.
TSR named their version;Terrible Swift Sword;Battle of Gettysburg Game.

BTW I also have all three versions of GMT's Three Days of Gettysburg (first/second edition update/and the third edition),and The Gamers:This Hallowed Ground, and Last Chance for Victory....

cheerio
Mike
