Not crazy about the sleeves. Tanks arrived intact, but like many others am underwhelmed. Still think a "nuclear football" (briefcase) would have been a neater box, but this one is pretty cool.

Might be interested in selling/trading.

Once you get the sleeves on the cards I think you will appreciate them. I was wary at first, but they're nice and sturdy.

I (along with a few people I've talked to) threw away the sleeves provided by GMT. They are crap.

Most other things in the box are merely different from the normal TS, like the art. Some things are actively worse, such as the influence counters/cubes.

All in all, we paid for a nice box.

People keep saying that but it's a false statement. They may not be to people's taste, but I've had no problem with them and they're incredibly sturdy.

I personally would have picked something different, but they're not crappy penny sleeves.

Won't bother with the sleeves myself. I prefer the art and layout of the board (compared to my old copy of twilight and I also prefer the new card backs. I would have liked metal/pewter tank/space pieces but think what came is fine. The influence blocks are useless and a hindrance to play. I wish they also included a counter sheet or a sticker sheet for both sides of the blocks. Was a little underwhelmed with it myself tbh.

True. They are worth much less than a penny.
