Mechs vs. Minions already is getting a lot of praise, but I need to add just a little more. I just came home to a massive box of goodness, and upon cracking the tape was greeted by one of the best packaged games I've ever received. The game was double wrapped in bubble wrap and there was additional packing material in the box to keep it from moving. Riot continues to impress. Thanks for an awesome product. Can't wait to get this to table.

This is a huge relief. I actually had a lot of concerns with how this would play out. Had lots of conversations with Chase about it - but ultimately, I wasn't sure how it would go until I heard this post.

I'm also worried about over-zealous customs officials opening up packages. That happened a few times when the game was shipping from China for us to review it. Hopefully, that's straightened out, too. But if it's not, please let us know.

I'm intrigued they are shipping in bubble wrap. I thought I read someplace that Cool Stuff found that games do better with peanuts than any other method. I'm not concerned games will be just fine in bubble wrap, but I do wonder about the science behind the peanut argument. MythBusters, where are you when we need you?!?

Yeah, I got the same packaging -- but one corner of the box still managed to get crumpled.
