I was also disappointed in the box size. Marvel came with a board instead of a mat. I like the mat better but not sure why they thought folding a rolled up mat was a good idea. I'm also just storing it outside of the box.
Same.. very disappointed in the size of this box... playmats are better if you can roll them up and play with them... but it won't fit in the box w/o folding it...Guess I have to purchase a playmat tube from my LGS. This set should have only been 39$ bucks too... I'm pretty disappointed in the amount of content you get in this vs any of the stand alone games 400 cards..... ? and a short box.... Shame on you Upper Deck.
