I must say, the box is just incredibly awesome. I have never seen a game in such a thick and sturdy box. I wish they all came this way!

I agree. Every time I bring out the game, I stare at the box for awhile. never saw anything like it.

If the box wasn't too awesome to destroy, I'd try a weight test. I think I might be able to stand on it at ~200lb

Its the first box to inspire be to "show off" some games on my bookshelf by laying it on one of the sides so it shows off the box top from across the room - like it would look in a store.

I love supporting this game with other players and it's near impossible for me to do so without mentioning the components up to and including that awesome box.

It's beautiful.

I bought Fantastiqa today. The box and the components, wow, it was well worth the money.

It's not too often that you come across a thread entirely devoted to the awesomeness of a game box!

But this is no ordinary game box! It's truly outstanding, and I've heard it said that it's so solid, that it could be used to kill a man!

I don't own this game, but every time I see the box art, it immediately reminds me of the art for the video game Another World:

I love what my friend Jeff had to say about the Enchanted Edition's box in his review:
Quote:
I think it’s safe to say that, with respect to ‘toughness’ at any rate, the apogee of box design has been reached. I’m only exaggerating slightly when I say that this box could probably stop a bullet!

But especially Alf Seegert's hilarious comment about the box deserve to be reproduced here, it's brilliant!
Quote:
Last I heard, quests to claim its uber-thick and classy box have started border wars in fantasy kingdoms ranging from Prydain to Azeroth. Royal assassinations and troll-tower sieges have been plotted, performed, and thwarted, wielding no more than the box lid alone.
