I just moved and with the move comes the mandatory breakdown of my collection's shelves and inevitable resetting.

I was able to fit most of my games pretty well onto the shelves. Many boxes are roughly the same shape and size, so it makes storing easy.

However, there are a few games that DON'T want to be like the others.

This is my tribute to those boxes.

This box is freaking HUGE! I thought Earth Reborn was big but this is much larger. I've been debating about selling it since it takes up way too much space. Though there's no way I could ship it since where do you find a box that large?

Love the game and have three sets, but it doesn't shelve well. Then again, it's often in the bag of games that we carry around, where it's actually less of a pain than the games in boxes.

Points for a zipper instead of a drawstring!

Carl Chudyk seems to enjoy putting his games into boxes that fit weird on my shelves. Innovation uses what looks like a bank check box. It also seems to suffer from a serious bulge; poor boxing and a pain to fit onto my shelves.

I know at the Glee Club they'd be guffawing at the prospect of mentioning 16 inches, but in the present context 16 inches is just too damn long. Or rather too damn high.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Simple and nice abstract game with good components. Sure it could have been packaged in small square or rectangular box, but a hexagon must have been on the bucket list of one of the staff members of this game.

Another huge flat box (at least the 1st edition is - which is what I have).

The problem with these large boxes is not only are they difficult to shelve, they are difficult to carry too. It doesn't fit in the bag I normally use (just like Antiquity and Roads & Boats) and so it very rarely gets carted along to a game session.
