Just a short question to those who might know:
Does the new game board fit into the original Steam box or does it fold in another way?

Of course, this is only helpful if you know the sizes of recent Treefrog games, which I don't.

In that case, it is probably too tall (portrait orientation). A Treefrog box is a little more than 1/2" taller than the Steam box.

Howsabout the other way then? Is a Treefrog box deep enough to handle all the Steam componentry?

Nope, probably not thick enough either. At least future expansions should be able to fit in one of the two boxes.

You could make your own box and print up a label?

You could also lug both boxes around, you know.

When folded, both the Automobile board and the Steel Driver board fit in the Steam box. I haven't checked any others. Although the Treefrog boxes are a bit longer than the Steam box, the boards themselves fit OK. This is not the same as old AoS expansion maps, which don't fit in the Steam box.

Good idea. I just checked the box dimensions. Looks like the Treefrog board may fit in the Steam box.
