So, if I recall correctly in the last update where they discussed the delay they showed pictures of retail boxes and said most of the printed materials had been assembled except for the more bulky kickstarter boxes. Does anyone know how big those are? I am prepping my limited shelf space (of which Gloomhaven will take up a ton of!)

Thanks and have a great day!

They haven't said yet how big it is, but I'm hoping it's massive. That's what I'm paying for, after all!

Though, admittedly I'm a bit of a components junkie. I will probably regret it when I have to start finding new storage solutions.

Hopefully everything will fit back into the box after it is punched out too! That is one of my pet peevesshake

My only concern is that card holder; there's no way that could fit in the box and disassembling it after each game could wear it out quickly.

Gary, c'mon. Don't be so negative, there is not a single reason for that. By Christmas you'll have actually beaten the campaign a long time ago and quite possibly moved to player-created content or other titles.

That's been my experience with pretty much every CMoN game with minis. I get around it by putting the minis in bags instead of using the packaging that they come in.

speaking of size of KS boxes:


and Ares commented:
"40 x 27 x 13.5 cm... 150% larger than the retail version (when you add in Vastaryous'Lair and the Add-on box, an Immortal Pledge is 3 times the S&S retail box)."

That makes me really nervous. I like to keep all components for a game in the same container. Expansion boxes just take up too much room. Its hard getting rid of boxes when you first start out, but now that I've started, I won't ever go back. I just hope that the base game box is large enough and sturdy enough to hold all the expansion elements.

Given the sheer number of components (and the awkward sizing for things like the dragon), I suspect we're all in trouble when it comes to consolidating into a single storage container.

Maybe scalp the image off the box and apply it to one of those giant Rubbermaid containers.
