Was reading the Nuremberg 2005 review over at game fest and saw this interesting pic:

Of course it is labeled #1. I figured it would be next in the big box #10 or small box #6. Is this going to be a mid box game? A new series, damn, another line to collect...

Alea
Mike;

As Rick and I both mentioned in our respective Essen reports (can't find the link at the moment), Louis XIV will be a 'mid-box' game - that is, medium size.

Exactly how big that is remains to be seen, but I'm guessing Carcassonne / Tongiaki / St. Pete size.

Mike -

> Is this going to be a mid box game? A new series, damn, another line to collect...

As mentioned in the Nuremberg Preview...

"Followers of the Alea's games should note that this will be neither a small nor a large box game. Alea will be releasing the game in a new box format that is a medium size - a size between the current large and small box games. This box is to be a bit smaller than the box for the Hans im Gl├╝ck game Saint Petersburg."

I guess it's true that people only look at the pictures!

The only one they skipped was Mammoth Hunters, so let's hope so.
