Without the expansion box, would it fit? I'm planing on getting it the game and the expansions at once, but would only be able to get shipping space for one of the boxes.
For space purposes, consider both games brand new.

My copy isn't here yet, but I'm 90% sure it will all fit together with the box insert, and 99% sure it will all fit without the insert.

Also, The Broken Token sells a box insert (for the original box) that specifically claims that the expansion fits as well, and I'd trust them.

You might even be able to fit the whole expansion box inside the base game box if you remove the original insert.

My expansion box will be jettisoned as soon as I get it emptied and take a picture.

from the content of this expansion, I see no reason what so ever that would prevent you from storing the content in the originial game box. These are basically a few tiles and some dices.

In fact, if future expansion are similar, I could see you being able to keep 5 or more expansion in the original box.

With a bit of puzzle skills you can fit them all in the expansion box.

The shields are longer than the expansion box, so I wonder how you are storing them there?

I think you are underestimating the number of tiles (46, 14 of them double-sized and 20 of them 1.5x sized) in this expansion and the volume they take up. Ambition has 10x sheets of cardboard in it.

what shields? if you mean the screens, they fit in the bottom, the only thing that I had to fold was the basic game rulebook.

Before the ambition I stored the basic game in the basic box of race for the galaxy so now that it has the same size I fit them in and it's easier to carry around..

I've been keeping my copy of Roll in a Race box for some time (chiefly because I've had to really restrict the size of games that I could carry while I was reliant on crutches for a few months).

It was always going to be a tight fit to get Roll PLUS Ambition in a Race-sized box, but I can confirm that it does all fit. So I've decanted it from the Race box into the Ambition box (because carrying around a box labelled "Race" was confusing for some people). And the Ambition box is a TINY bit bigger.

One thing you have to do is to take the tiles out of the bag.

I think I might make up an inlay to help store the tiles (and speed dumping them into the bag when setting up). But it will have to be made from 1mm cardboard; there's no room left in the box to make something out of 5mm foam core!

I was pleasantly surprised at the "heft" of the expansion box. Those are ten sheets of THICK cardboard.

Lots of orange dice, though, and I don't remember seeing any bag tiles with orange dice on them. In our one game of Ambition so far, by chance everyone drew a starting planet and faction that came from the base game!
