I haven't seen it yet but based on the pictures, it looks to be the new "coffin box size" from FFG. It is not the "double" box size like Descent was, but I have started seeing this size pop up in my FLGS, even with War of the Ring and some others. It is still rectangular but smaller than the old boxes.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

I heard it was the same size of WotR but until I get my copy I have no idea...

(still waiting for it to hit on this side of the world)

As the "old" WotR box, or the "new"?

As I mentioned above, they started shrinking them. Are they double the size of the Arkham Horror or Android box (in otherwords about 24" x 12") or "smaller"? Or perhaps, they are issuing them in both sizes?

It's not Descent/Starcraft/TI3 sized (I really didn't think WotR ever came in that size). It's approx the same size as Marvel Heroes/Age of Conan.

Did WotR *really* ever come in the true FFG "coffin-sized" box?

I don't have War of the Ring and I don't think I have any other games of exactly the same size to compare it to, but I measured the box to answer someone who asked about it in another thread recently - the measurements are 40.5 x 28 x 9 cm (16 x 11 x 3.5 inches).

Hope that helps.

I pulled out the old tape measure, War of the Ring is the same as those numbers above (didn't measure Marvel Heroes, but looking at the boxes, they seem identical in size).

That's a relief. I have a hard time getting my friends to play anything if the box is too big.

Thanx to all of you.I picked up the game at my FLGS on Friday 8/14/09.The box size is WotR size.I'm guessing "old" version as my copy of WotR is pretty old.

Yeah, sorry for the confusion. I assumed WotR was much bigger than it was. But seeing Descent and the other true coffin box games from FFG, I guess my WotR is smaller than I imagined. And MEQ is the same size as it.

Can anyone comment on what amount of table size this takes when set up? Compared to say, Arkham Horror?

Our table just about accomadates a 4 investigator game with all card piles alongside the board, is this a similar size or larger?

I've only played AH once, so I could be remembering wrong but I think it would be similar. The MEQ board is big, but it has built in spaces for a lot of the decks included, so you don't need extra space for all of them. And the board has some other unused space which can be used for some of the other decks.
