"Game Salute on February 21, 2014
A quick confirmation for those who have been asking - the Archfiends box *will* have the space to contain the base Shadowrift cards alongside the Archfiends ones, even if they are all sleeved!
Michael"

"Game Salute 3 days ago
It was never portrayed as an all-in-one storage solution, Stalvos - just an expansion. We release many expansions for games that you can't fit the original in, as do many companies."

Yeah.

I actually don't mind that the expansion box won't hold the base game cards, but I am a bit disappointed that they've gone back on such a clear promise to the backers.

They didn't just go back on it - they're denying they ever said it. The blatant lies and revisionism are worse than not being able to deliver.

As I've mentioned on the Kickstarter page, it would appear that I made a mistake. I apologise - I was under the impression that the box would hold every card. Checking back, I now see that the game box is simply for the expansion. If you wish to discuss this mistake - and it is MY mistake, nothing more than that - please message me or email me. I'm even happy to call you up and apologise personally if you wish; sorry for any trouble I've caused.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the reply.

I actually just came here to post that you had replied to me on the Kickstarter comments, and quote your reply.

Your honesty, in owning up to the mistake is refreshing and very welcomed.

There is no need for you to call me up to apologise personally.

Thanks again.

The first time it happens, it's a mistake.

As it continues to happen, it's not a mistake, it just incompetence, and that's Game Salute's wheel house right there.

Wow. The big box was one of my top reasons for pledging for the expansion. The base game box is way too small. Now I have two too small boxes to carry around. Very disappointing.

Pretty much my reaction, too.

But hey -- the campaign for the second edition will be starting on the 23rd of June. Maybe THAT will have a box big enough to hold the game . . .

With the April 27 comments on the Kickstarter, Game Salute stated:

Quote:
So, regarding the box size, it would appear that I made a mistake. Pure and simple as that, and I apologise; it would appear that back then I was under the impression that the box would hold the lot. Checking back, I see that the game box is simply for the expansion. If you wish to discuss this mistake - and it is MY mistake, nothing more than that - please message me or email me. I'm even happy to call you up and apologise personally if you wish...
