So how does one withstand the urge to avoid opening the DO NOT OPEN EVER packet? I'm terrified when this game arrives from the evil mailman, I will not have the strength of will to withstand OPENING THIS VERY THING FIRST!

GHHHYAAAAHHH!!!!!

Not really a spoiler - you can see it after you open the box and before you play your first game (though it is "hidden" under the insert) and it's been discussed here quite a bit already.

Yeah, I'm one of the biggest spoilerbusters here but I don't get this "It's a spoiler to be made aware of the existence of a game component" argument. Really, who's served by the avoidance of this spoiler? ARe you happier with the thrill of not knowing about this packet than the thrill of playing with it?

I'm happy someone 'spoiled' this on me. I'd be unhappy if my world was played and shelves and THEN I found out there was more fun to be had if only I knew it existed.

No spoilers, but DO NOT OPEN IT. We opened it. We regretted the decision.

Not really regretted it, but... Let's just say that it was properly labeled.

It's almost like there are different versions.

We opened the DO NOT OPEN EVER packet. It ruined the game for us. In a good way.

I was wondering.... wouldn't this whole site be a big spoiler to one who hasn't owned the game or played it yet, and then read, "There's a win twice packet?" or "theres a world capitol packet?" ... ;D

I personally think that people who are looking up information on a game are going to get spoilers of one sort or another.

Yep, happened to me once or twice... The most stupid was when we opened the sign the board twice packet and I wanted to look for details on rules and see if we missed anything by opening all threads on that packet. Then I read something I dind't understand. Turned out I was reading a thread about the sign twice packet AND the 30 troops packet. So there were spoilers for both in them. Damn my %$#%^%# obsession with this game. It's just so damn awesome that I want to read as much about it as I can but slowly I get careless and take to much risks with reading threads and thus got spoiled a couple of times

My group had already guessed, seeing as how the
Spoiler (click to reveal)
aliens and mutants
had their own
Spoiler (click to reveal)
personal missions
that the DM, EotB, IB, KI, S were getting their own as well. But I accidently confirmed that while scroling along on this website..... I'm not disappointed.
