The FAQs confirm that, no, we can't.

As someone asked in the KS comments, why are people requesting a big box? I also have all the expansions, in sleeves, and everything fits in the original box with room to spare for this expansion.

Just curious...

That's a bummer, how hard can it be?

If the campaign gets more than expected funds then maybe there is some hope, i have seen projects go back on their words and make things happen that they were sure they wouldn't offer at first.

Maybe people want inserts as well?

Personally, I was never keen on the box itself - always seemed far flimsier than any other box currently on the market. So I'd be happy with well-organised inserts and a thicker box

I have no problem fitting it in one box as well. The game is mostly cards anyway...

3d printed tiles. Those fill up the box really quickly.

the bigger box will never support 3d printed tiles as they are not sold by stronghold...

Not that hard, but if it wasn’t something they were planning for when they scoped the project, it would be very difficult to do it well and meet their goal of shipping by Essen. They would need to design and prototype the box with all of their production partners (more difficult if they try to do an insert), and then get it slotted in for production, and then shipped to distribution centers. There is a lot of other logistical choices that could impact the cost and ability to deliver (single language cover design that is cheaper to manufacture in bulk, but has to be shipped all over the world, or localized designs that cost more to produce per copy, but have less freight costs)? Even if they went with the “easiest” solution, it would probably push delivery back to Q1 2020.

Do not mind the delay, if it gives us the box

It's not really about the size of the box, it's about a single box designed to hold everything.

In the second image everything fits, but . . . it could be better.

Bigger box equals much higher shipping cost. Plus how can you design a box that will fit everything if you don't know what "everything" is yet (i.e. possible future expansions)?

I can fit everything in the normal box just fine without anything being damaged. I'd rather wait until the final expansion and get a bigger box then (if it's needed).

This is it buddy, this is the last of the expansions, said by Stronghold on many an Interviews, plus the designer has said previously that there were only 6 planned expansions, the current ks is expansion 5&6 mixed into 1.

Hence the need for a bigger box and a sturdy box.

I have a made my own paper based insert that fits all the expansions + Pathfinder + my own custom player boards.

I only need to confirm the exact size of the delegate pieces to know it I will be able to fit them too.

If there's a bigger box stretch goal, I'd like there to be a bigger shelf stretch goal as well. My current box holds all the stuff I have (in an orderly way), with room to add the Turmoil expansion. And it fits in my Kallax chest.

If there were a bigger box, I would need a bigger Kallax as well. So please provide a stretch goal that covers that.

Whereas in the first image those cute colourful spoons had to be thrown out.

They have said this is the last big expansion (Venus Next and Colonies is considered big as well), they have not said that it is the last expansion ever.
