Arrived in Canada today! Shipping packaging was fine - game box wrapped in single layer of bubble wrap (except on ends of game box) and placed in slightly larger cardboard shipping box. No room for game to slide around. Components are excellent - especially the linen-finish mapboard! Of note, the box cover depth is slightly less than the depth of the box bottom - not sure why - but it's a true bookcase game box AND it holds a GMT counter tray!
