Please, can you list some titles (or just one title in my collection) whose box has the same height and width (maybe depth too?) of the Agricola box?

I was sure it's standard size, but surprisingly my copy is half a centimeter larger in each of the 3 dimensions than say puerto rico.

Puerto Rico actually fits perfectly inside the Agricola box.

This would be the German edition. No guarantee the Zman edition will be the same box.

I'm actually hoping the Z-Man box will be deeper as when the components are bagged/sleeved the box isn't quite deep enough.

You're just not packing it away properly! ninja

Rule 1: No air. At all.
Rule 2: Only I get to pack it up.
Rule 3: Every different tile/token type has its own baggie.
Rule 4: Everything has to sit beneath the level of the box bottom.

It's actually the larger E deck that ruins it all Melissa. It's just a few millimeters taller than the edge of the box...

Actually, I'm more curious about the card size; I have to buy card sleeves for them. Is it the same size as used in standard FFG card cames or larger size used in Taj Mahal/Aladdins Dragons?

Yes the question is: Yu Gi Oh or Magic sleeves?

Magic sleeves work, but cards stick out the top a few mm. Ultra-Pro has larger sports-cards sleeves that are a bit big but IMO work better than Magic sleeves.

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

No, no, Melissa speaks the truth.

It does pack away, even with card condoms fitted and I am not allowed to pack it up.

Back to the original question it is also the same size as the Goa box.

It begs the question though... why?

I'm left imagining poor masdero, only allowed the games that will fit into this closet... carefully measuring each potential purchase to best make use of this precious space.

Quite the opposite: I try to stack (max 3) games by box size, and I was trying to visualize if I had to re-sort boxes or not
