Was anyone else blown away by the size and amount of things in the white box contents that Isaac revealed in the KS update?

Is it a moose that became a detective ? Or a detective who searches for moose?

Sexiest board game box I've seen in a while -- even without a single detail on it.

I was quite shocked to see the box -- I own nothing remotely like this; most of my game boxes are the standard square variety, no extra depth either.
And don't you think that they will have had to change the art again from the 3d-rendered version they posted here? Unless my perception is really off, this one looks quite a bit deeper and would require a different layout for the sides.

I was not expecting that at all. I do not know where I will store it. I guess I could replace the end table?

At least I have a couple of months to make space

The 3D render was made with those dimensions in mind. You just don't quite register the scale of it without a reference to compare it to.

I still can't believe I backed this. Not the type of game I would normally go after. Very pleased that I did!

Oh, great! I really like the most recent 3d-rendering; I think it will look awesome.

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of both games, as well! It's going to be an exciting next few months.

Huh. I'm in the minority here but that box size made me question whether Gloomhaven is a game that is a good fit for me.

It may not be a good fit for your shelf! Granted, the box is not huge for no reason, it just has a lot of contents.

I'm the complete opposite: big box (filled with good contents) is a plus rather than a problem. If you need to transport the game then I understand your concerns. But the sheer size and scale of the game was obvious to me during the kickstarter. I'm very keenly anticipating.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying, generally speaking, that that amount of content is bad. However that box is enormous and I legitimately don't have a place for it. Even if I cleared one of my shelves (where I keep my games) entirely I don't know if it would fit.

So for me I wonder if I would play the game enough to warrant all that content. Especially if it would mean somewhere between 8-10 games lost in order to own it.

I'm very curious about the game but was expecting something like Level 7 [Omega Protocol] or Scythe as a maximum size.

Edit: For additional clarity when I see a game with that much content I imagine it being played 1-2 times a week. Frequently in situations where it might be the only game played in a night. By gaming groups that adore the shit out of doing that. So I could see how that much content, keeping things fresh for a long time would be appealing.

That's not my situation though. I don't play nearly as much as I'd like and enjoy playing a variety of games. It would literally take me years to see all of that.

Maybe if I lived in a home where I could have a dedicated game room with lots and lots of shelves it wouldn't matter but the white box scares me with its size.
