Is there any chance we might see a big box for this expansion?
Right now there seems to be a bit over 1000 pre-orders on P500 and the expansion has made the cut but I've always felt that the P500 is a bit opaque so I don't know what this means. Is it too late to wish for a big box?
(The latest GMT update has Replicators scheduled for May - June 2017).
Or heck, a sanely sized player board that's not twice the thickness of all other game boards in the industry would be nice, too.
In fact, a decent paper map or two would solve all these problems. Can't understand the preference a big chunky mounted board here.
I like mounted boards. Dislike paper mats.
I'm fine with mounted, but GMT uses obscenely thick mounted boards to no benefit. The board takes up huge amount of space in the box. While I don't have issues with SE4X, some of their other games I can never get to lay flat, either. Other companies use normal thickness boards which are lighter, take up less space, and lay flatter.
