Today at 9:38 (that's am) local time my kickstarter copy has arrived at my front door. Rejoice! Now I need to sit through an entire day of work before I can start stickering.

Ooooh, it's a "good mail"-week this week then. Hopefully the delivery goes smoothly this time, and I won't end up in a "we can only deliver it during work hours, to your home, when you are at work" kind of thing again.

I'm lucky to be able to work from home on monday and the package also deciding to arrive on monday.

Mind's just arrived in the UK. Hurrah!

After so long scouring BGG and the KS page for new info every few hours, I don't know what I'm going to do with myself!

Share photos, before you spend far too much time applying stickers?
(Just a hopeful guess...)

It's so you can fit the expansion and add-ons in there.

Don't board game publishers know we all use Expedit/Kallax shelving?!

But seriously, it annoys me when a game is too long and/or wide to fit in a cubby laugh

Hence the importance of building one (or more) of the Expedit cubbies double-wide...

No it's not that big. It's size of the long side of Mage Knight, but square.

How does that hold up structurally speaking?

I removed one of the vertical supports on the top row (specifically, the upper-right-most of the 12 internal supports). So it primarily reduces the amount that could be stacked on top. I don't keep much on top of the unit, so I'm completely unconcerned. The specs claim a 28 lb load per shelf... I wonder whether that's 28 for the full length of shelf or 28 lb per cubby. Pretty sure those vinyl collectors stack a lot per cube.

Based purely on my gut, I wouldn't be afraid to lie down on top of it, but I wouldn't seat myself over the removed support. I would be a little more cautious about leaving more than one support out, and I certainly wouldn't remove them from a lower row.

How big is yours Rahdo, because a German one doesn't measure up to anything particularly special?

Yup, 35x35 which makes it the biggest box game I own...

35 cm square is only a tad bigger than my Roborally box and as long as the short side of Clue: The Great Museum Caper. I hope that people haven't devolved from complaining about the board smallness to complaining about the box hugeness. You can't have it both ways.
