Does anyone else have a problem with the size of the box for both Ravenloft and Ashardalon? All the stuff I have fits into the inserts just fine but I have an inch of wasted space in the box.

I have put my punchboards under the insert to bring it even with the top of the box but that's a lot of wasted space.

It doesn't look like they will be doing expansions for this game just one off games, so I don't need the extra space to put expansion junk in.
I don't have a problem with them doing these one off games but I sure wish they would make the boxes a bit thinner, my shelf space is at a saturation point.

Yup! That's my big complaint, it's good to be an American.

Has anyone tried to put both games into one box, by tossing the inserts?

If I recall isn't the box pretty much packed to the gills when it comes unpunched? How could they make it smaller?

Earth Reborn and Titan came with the lids lifted up from the box bottom by an inch or so. Once the punchboards were removed the lids set down all the way.

I do not have a problem with it's size. I like the size, it looks huge! What can I say, I am easily impressed. I tossed my punchboards. I don't want the extra weight of those cards and if I do move the game about I will be careful of things flapping around but as it stands I had only a few Ziplocs to use and it is packed nice and tight anyway. I think it will pack down a bit better with a few separate Ziplocs when I get 'em. I don't own a lot of games yet. My opinion may change.

I really hope they do some expansions that add on to an existing set. I would love a new adventure book with a few well themed monster's to add and a few extra tiles and cards rather that buying another whole boxed game every time they release a D&D adventures product.

I guess they will release an expansion if they get to a point where the new standalones do not sell like hotcakes then they will probably go to the box that sold the most copies and make some. Otherwise I assume they will crank out box after box and just support the existing ones with free online adventures which combine the existing games. That seems fair enough I guess.

No, don't listen to the heathen! Keep these boxes HUGE!!!

The manual actually instructs you to put the used punch boards underneath the insert, so the insert goes to the top. I like it as is, since I know more games are coming out, and I'll eventually merge everything, put all tiles and bits in the CR box, all the little minis in the WoA box, all the big minis in the LoD box, etc.

I likes me large boxes! (can't believe I just said that)

That's actually a good idea. I'd be ok with that as it does take up a lot of space on the shelf. I didn't realize with Ravenloft till I tossed the punch boards exactly why they told you to put them under the insert. Duh. Oh well, I will be sure to do this with the game is coming in the mail as we speak!
