I was so happy to receive Timber Tom in the mail today. The board was in good condition (a few frayed edges here and there, nothing major), but I was a little perplexed about storing the game.

As far as I can tell, there's no way to close the game box like most games. Most games have a lid and the box, and they fit over each other. In Timber Tom, the two "halves" don't overlap. I have to use the thin cardboard cover, which doesn't look like it will stand up to much use.

I don't want to use a rubberband to hold the two halves of the game together in transit or for storage, as I don't want the rubber band to leave any marks on the box

As I have the game, I fully know what you mean.

But that thin outer cover will last longer than you think, unless you get really wild and crazy. I have had my copy over a year and the outer cover still looks great.

I store it additionally in the parcel it came in. Reminds me of the day it arrived. And there is space inside for the expansion ...

How long did it take for your copy to come in?

I ordered it late February 3rd, and received it on the 10th. Considering that the fulfillment company Marco uses is in Pennsylvania, and I'm in a suburb of Los Angeles, that's pretty quick shipping.

Hmm...I ordered mine on the 10th and was told it was shipped on the 11th. I am only one day shipping away from where it was sent in the US. It still hasn't come in and they haven't responded to any of my follow up emails. I'm beginning to wonder if i'll ever see the game. Well at least I paid with a credit card.

I got mine today and they said it shipped on the 23rd so it got here in two days. Amazing looking game - pictures don't do it justice.

Who is "they"? Marco responded very quickly the few times I emailed him. Although keep in mind he's in Europe, so he might be fast asleep if you're emailing in the evening hours of the US time zones.
