As some people have noted, one may be distracted from appreciating the beautiful packaging and artwork of Biblios by an unfortunate odor emanating from the box. Please be patient, as the odor will slowly fade away. I believe, as one of my customers pointed out, that it may be from the glue used inside the box (holding in the insert) and the cards have absorbed it. In any case, it does go away. My sample game has been airing out for a couple days and I can only smell it if I bury my nose in the box.

I can confirm this. We all (of a certain age) remember the smell of a freshly printed ditto. No worries. It fades away just like that. Thanks for a great game!

Someone complaining over the smell of 'newness"?? They obviously never owned a new car. Packaging is great btw.

The game was made in China, so it is possible that the smell comes from the chemicals used in the inks and not the glue...

I have a few Made in China games that smell really bad...

After just 5 games, the smell has faded away! No problem!

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

It smelled a lot better than the rawhide dice cup from Stone Age (phew!).

Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him. 2 Sam 14:14

Ahhh, well it's a good thing I have Scripts & Scribes, because I am particularly sensitive to many of those chemical odors. I can smell them long after they are supposedly "gone." I've had to ditch several games because of this.

Hmmm... that's funny, because I thought I caught a whiff of acetone or formaldehyde coming from your Samurai Swords box... Let me know next time you need to ditch one!

Aww, didn't feel right asking about them, but thanks! You can put them in baggies until next time. 8ˆ)

I survived the rotting corpse stench of 1st edition, or should I say 'mold edition' Duel in the Dark. No game holds any olfactory terror for me now.

This may spoil my usual unboxing ritual of cracking the lid and taking a long whiff of that new-game smell.
