I would love to write a "Now Playing" post about Euthia, but I only opened the box yesterday. Yes, it's quite a behemoth.
Then I went through the depunching and sorting. Our local Master of Sinanju already mentioned it, but there are 42 sheets of punchable cardboard.
It took me more than an hour to depunch everything. Fortunately, I think depunching is a very relaxing activity, and I enjoy it much, but still, after the 300th tile, even I started to feel tired of it. Then I stored everything, in a carefully sorted way, in the plastic bags that came with the box (thank you Diea Games for the little attention).
And another picture while we're at it:
It may look like a huge mess, but I like the way things could be organized. It may seem like a lot of components, and it is, but they all share similar gameplay purposes for what it looks like. It brings variety, not complexity. For instance, you have a bit more than 200 item tiles. They all work the same mechanically, but that way you'll have different stuff across your games.
All the heroes-related components come in duplicates for all heroes, which means each six of them has separate health tokens, action tokens, and so on. It becomes therefore surprisingly convenient to store all you need for a single hero, which means when I'll play, I'll just have to grab the corresponding bag, and that's it.
In the end, I could put everything back in the box with ease. Even though there is a lot of stuff, and there is no insert, it doesn't feel messy. There are two "foam" inserts, one for the minis (and I could put the six hero bags there as well), one for the cards and dice; the rest is cardboard tokens or map hexes that all went in bags.
Well, so far, I'm really pleased. I am grateful not to have too many of such massive games in my collection, but this one brings me satisfaction so far. Now to the rules!
