In the image below we can see the game is in a clam-shell package.
I wonder if there's a small box inside this because these are usually not reusable.

The box is a typical FFG quality box, lovely as ever. Getting out of that damn clam shell is a nightmare though. I guess they've done it this way to pitch it at the Love Letter crowd.

Ditto this. We wound up with several dents and scrapes on the real box from trying to get it out of that stupid clamshell.

Um... kitchen scissors? Cut three sides off and you're good to go. It's not the packaging at fault here. Seriously. It isn't.

Same here. I used a small knife to cut a hole big enough for some scissors and ran it across the top 3 sides, (bottom 3 sides is actually better because it won't cause the flap to open up and make the package last longer if you liked the art, or for traveling). Either way, if you take it easy the game won't get damaged. I do like the art that is there, so not ruining it was a plus for me.

Hope others take it easy and it'll be just fine.
