Anyone have any clever suggestions on how to pack it? I got the deluxe version with wooden pieces. I'd rather keep the extra cardboard tokens with the game, but I might have to scuttle them! Even with that, it seems like it will be too small.

Take a look at this image.



Full disclosure: I haven't gotten around to trying this myself yet.

I thought the same thing and my deluxe components wouldn't fit either. I just kept the shipping box to keep everything in and chalked it up to another check mark against Game Salute.

I have a review I'm working on writing and this was going to be my first complaint. I HATE shallow game boxes. If your game uses cards and boards, it should be deep enough to comfortably fit all game boards AND a deck box sitting on top of the boards. The box is extremely sturdy, and I like that, but I have a plano box holding all the chits that I keep outside the box and then I have bags holding the cards (which I hate doing with a fiery passion.

IMHO, the box is a total failure.

I also bought the deluxe version of the game. I was able to pack everything in the box (regular and deluxe components), until I sleeved the cards. I used UltraPro ProFit sleeves (which admittedly, are thicker than some other sleeves), as I found that the thin cards were curling significantly once I used them in a game. The sleeves fixed that problem, but made it impossible to get all the components back in the box, even if I left all the standard cardboard tokens and spues out of the box.

As a result, I think I'll make up a "companion" box to hold the wooden tokens and use the main box for everything else.

Luckily, this is really my only complaint with the game, as it has been enjoyable to play and easy to teach.

Too bad about the box, but it will probably only affect those with the wooden deluxe components.
