I know the box size has increased since the original, but does anyone know what it has increased to? What's the box size expected to be? Race for the Galaxy size?

"Versions" list the box size as: Size: 12.40 x 8.86 x 2.95 inches or 31.5 x 22.5 x 7.5 cm - https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/198707/hostage-negotiato...

That is bigger than the common RftG/carcassonne/Splendor style box; someone else may know if its the same as any other game for comparison?

The Kickstarter shows the two boxes in relation (old placed inside new) so that might give you a hint.

In the BGG broadcast of GenCon, it looked like AJ repurposed a Command and Colors: Ancients box for the new box.

Thanks for the replies. And I appreciate that visual, but I'm looking for specific dimensions.

If 12.40 x 8.86 x 2.95 inches is correct, that's right about the size of the standard larger rectangle euro box a lot of publishers have been using the past few years (La Granja, Vikings, Agricola, Stauffer Dynasty, etc.)

That is bigger than the common RftG/carcassonne/Splendor style box; someone else may know if its the same as any other game for comparison?



So roughly the same size 7th Continent box? Is the total weight also similar? Which IIRC was just shy of 11lb?

Nope. My shipping notification said it's like 2.7 lbs. Don't think it has nearly as many cards as 7th Continent whistle
