Following similar changes made to the Call of Cthulhu and A Game of Thrones CCGs (now Living Card Games), Fantasy Flight Games has decided to eliminate the blind-purchase aspect of the Mutant Chronicles Collectible Miniatures Game. Instead of randomly filled boxes whose contents are unknown until after purchase, from now on Fantasy Flight will be using window boxes. Players will know exactly what they’re purchasing.

If you ask me, these developments are long overdue. And I’m glad to see Fantasy Flight on the vanguard of this trend. I’ve been intrigued by a number of collectible games out there—miniatures in particular—but I just can’t get over the concept that I’m being asked to spend my money without being told what it’s for.
