This is becoming a real bugbear for me - game boxes that are WAY too big for the components they have inside. We got this yesterday and lifted the lid to find a small cardboard box about a sixth of the size of the complete box suspended in a carboard frame to fill the rest of the space. Yes, the rail is long and the rules are big but why not have a smaller size rulebook and a foldable rail? And - a suggestion - use any cost saving to fund a printed scorepad, was really disappointed to get a photocopiable sheet with permission to make my own copies.

Yep, this drives me nuts too. Even though I'm a female pirate.arrrh

We live in a small apartment, so it's a huge issue. But if we need to have the option of trading a game later, because our tastes have changed or whatever, we have to keep the box somewhere (granted if you repackage it smaller, you can next the open box in lid, and w/other game boxes if necessary). Still a problem, though.

This game is a real case of maximizing profits minimizing product bottom line - it could have been so much better a small longish wooden box, a small laminated score card and score pad - racks not just for kick starter - very sad to get such a large box with so much empty space bloody stupid ...

and perhaps they might just upload the score chart and sheet into files section when they can be bothered ...

a real opportunity missed - I picked up a copy of D-day dice today as well and the quality was second to none compared to this product...

I think Grpyhon Games really dropped the ball on this game - nice tiles though at least they got that bit right apart from not putting symbols on jokers for colored blind players ...

In the end I think that's all that really matters.
