Thanks. Rahdo's video was spoiler-free up until the point where I knew I'd want the game (about halfway through the extended portion). He was very careful about it up until then, highly doubt he would have spoiled anything towards the end.

That would be the vid I'd check out (game looks great too IMO).

Someone sent me the link and its there right from the beginning of the video, no warnings contained... The others (linked here on BGG) have been pretty good at being spoiler free (only watched a couple of the overviews)...

Man Vs Meeple showed a big spoiler and only after talking about it for about 30 seconds did they say, "Oh...Spoiler Warning!"

I don't know why everyone thinks this is some mega spoiler. The contents of the box are literally explained on the first page of rules in the rulebook.

I think we can all work out what the sealed box might contain,

Spoiler (click to reveal)
after all, some of it is sticking out of the box!


but still its nice to maintain an element of mystery - or that is how the designers seem to have wanted us to approach it!

Considering all the care that went into the announcement of the game, I feel like they would have been pretty explicit with the reviewers if they wanted it to remain secret.

Yeah, it's a real shame so many folks are opening the mini-box and showing what's in it, I didn't think that would be so prevalent. The devs went out of their way to do this cool sealed "teaser" box where you just see a hint of what's inside, and it was really cool for me and Jen when we got to open it when the campaign told us to (including cutting open the seal, making it feel like he was finally being let free), so we were lucky to be introduced to it as the developers intended.

Hopefully most folks get the same experience...

I would say that for myself, and I presume for anyone else who hasn't played LoL, there wasn't much lost in having it spoiled. I've seen the thing inside the box via some of these youtube reviews ... but it really doesn't mean anything to me.

i.e. I don't even understand how it is a spoiler.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
I'm guessing it's supposed to be someone specific from the game?

Only Rodney and Rhado didn't open the spoilers. Dice Tower did and I accidentally saw what was in the secret box
