What am I to do exactly with the four giant plastic bags that came in my copy? They're just a bit too small to house the boards (I wouldn't, anyway), and you could fit the rest of the components x2 into one of them. Did anyone else receive these behemoths?

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

I use them to store the four different colors of pieces (40x settlements, 1x scoring disc) and use another bag to store the other components.

Yeah, I got a big chuckle out of the ridiculously oversized bags. I store each player's pieces in one of them for a while, then replaced them with smaller, more appropriately-sized bags.

I'm assuming it was cheaper in some way to just have them all be the same size.

I just swapped them out for some of my spare smaller ones, and I'm sure those big ones will prove handy in some other game.

I made the experience that almost all of the games I bought in Essen this year had these oversized bags.

Maybe they were cheaper this year or suppliers simply ran out of the smaller ones.

I bet they would work really well for Agricola's tiles. :)

Wait a minute. Was there a limited edition that included pork chops? My copy came with no food whatsoever...cry

'Leftover pork chops' is clearly an oxymoron.
