There was a post on GeekDad today titled “A Gamer’s Pet Peeve: Big Box, Small Game,” and while the article itself was great, there was a tidbit in there I found very interesting. The author, Jonathan Liu, had created his own, smaller box for Caylus Manga Carta.  This got me thinking about my own game collection.  How many games do I own that have WAY bigger boxes than they need, and how much space could I save by making my own boxes for them?

My question goes out to all of you.  How many of you have opted for making smaller boxes for your games to make them fit in your game space easier?  What do you do with the boxes you’ve replaced?  Do you store them in the attic/basement, or throw them away?
