Hi Folks,

Received my game recently and the good news is that it was shipped in pristine condition. The bad news is that I noticed that the box sleeve that holds the four player boxes seems to be larger (about 1/4 of an inch or more) than necessary. It by no means prevents playability, but I'm wondering if anyone else's game have these dimensions? Photos below.




Thanks!

R.

Mine was similar. I'm not sure it's an error: my suspicion is that it was done that way for ease of removing the player boxes.

Mine was the same way, I do expect it was to make it easy to open.

Yup. I fond a piece of foam to slide in there to help maintain pressure and keep the pieces sort of in place in their trays.

Does this successfully keep the pieces in their nicely-shaped cutouts?

It seems to help as I did something similar. Unfortunately what the cool trays really needed was a small tab or something on the slots to hold the tokens in place like other, similar component trays have.

The boxes look so nice, I just wish there were a bit more functional. A clam shell type of case like the old Disney Classics VHS tapes would have been perfect.

I actually cut out 4 pieces of foamcore and put them inside each of the sleeves against the pieces. It holds them nice and tight and still fits perfectly in the sleeve. I'm thinking of printing out some artwork to make it look a little prettier.
