Pick your favorite board game and imagine if it sold the game with all the expansions, both major expansions and mini expansions, in one large package.

I really enjoy playing Carcassonne, and although they have the Big Box, it still is missing some of the newer expansions (The Count, River II, etc.)

Does anyone know if game companies ever sell a base game and all it's expansions (major and minor) in a single "big box"?

They are planning to do it with Bang! Deluxe, covering the base set with all 3 expansion sets in it. And they plan to put it in one 'big bullet' case ... wow.

This is a joke about the quality-control of the game. A few of the cards are

Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.

They lost me at the bullet case. Odd shaped games that don't fit well on my shelves are one of my pet peeves.

I can think of one boardgame example. 3W published their WWI air combat game, Aces High, with its one expansion included.

A few card games have done this, including SJ Games' Illuminati and the Z-Man Games' "B-Movie" series (until they continued printing new variations).

Mystery of the Abbey and Citadels are now bundled with their expansions. Granted, it's only a few cards in each case, but it's a nice bonus.

I have the Decennial edition and it does indeed include the Grandissimo expansion. Haven't played with it yet though. And the missing words don't cause too much
