The box is beautiful and sturdy but it contains almost no information on the game.

age rating, no of players, game length.. OK you can guess the number of players by dividing the no of components but still. I can't imagine any one buying this from a bricks and mortar store with that little information.

Are other games from the publisher as badly boxed? I've never noticed before. I do use the box when showing games to new players to allow them to pick (for a suitable short list)

Its on the side (at least for my box of it) - the bottom side, if that makes sense

14+, 2-6 players, 40-60 mins

apologies about that, I turned the box around several times and entirely missed it.

I commented because it is the first time I'd not seen it on a box.

False alarm all!

I have a number of games that only list this information on the sides of the box. It is a good place for it, since it is shown on your games shelf if people are looking for it for something to play.

But yeah, most games include player numbers elsewhere as well.

Truth be told, they really could use a different color than dark gray on black. It's barely visible from 20 cm.

I am pretty sure my box just has:
"Buy me now. Why haven't you bought me yet? Seriously dude, buy and play me this instant."
