As a guy who like to put base games and expansions into one box this is me just asking GMT to consider a deeper box for this expansion. Perhaps not the phone book sized Virgin Queen box, but something a bit bigger than the base game box.

thanks in advance

Dominant Species or SPQR Deluxe sized? I P500 a deep box if it wasn't financially feasible to do it with the base expansion.

I too would love a deep box for this one.

Count my vote! I'd love a three-inch deep box for this expansion.

I doubt the box will fit my plano boxes plus maps, it would have to be truly huge. So I am indifferent.

My 2 cents: I liked that the box was small-ish. Made the game very portable. The little plastic counter case I used (from Jo-Anne's I think) fit in there perfectly too.

I too was OK with the original box, but with an expansion, the fewer boxes I have to lug around the better.

I would also like to see a 3" box for the expansion. Sekigahara has a 3" box on the P500 list for the pre-order price of $6.00. If given the opportunity, I would definitely pre-order a 3" Space Empires: Close Encounters box.

A box designed to hold 4 (or 5?) gmt counter trays would be sweet and make a lot of sense. I chopped up my base game box to 'skin' a box of that size and it's been great. The counter trays accommodate a race's chit assortment very nicely.

Did anyone ever find out if a deeper box will actually happen? That would be perfect for this game.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

It didn't happen. It will be another box of the same size as the first.

Ah - that's life - no big deal. There's so much that is cool about this expansion that the box size really is a minor, minor thing.

Yeah, I would have like it also. If we every do another expansion (which would be a big if) maybe we could get a box that could hold everything.
