Dear the People who designed the Jungle Speed packaging

Let me get straight to the point, the box is huge. So huge that it doesn’t need to be. I was expecting a box that was frankly half its size, since the contents of box only should contain a deck of cards, the totem, an instruction manual and a pouch. I was surprised by the sheer size of it, if that was your goal you indeed have fulfilled it however did you think about how much wasted cardboard and plastic you’re going to use to make the packaging? You literally could have made the box compact, and space efficient so it wouldn’t be a hassle to lug around when you first take it home.

The box really doesn’t have to be that big, it’s highly inefficient. There’s all this empty space inside the box that isn’t filled, in fact it’s enough room to fit an average size paper back novel. You could have made the box thinner or even smaller so that you can store more boxes in a given space, instead we get a box that the inside is practically half filled with air. Do you really think this is a good idea considering how huge empty boxes can be easily crushed? With the materials you use to make this 1 huge box, you could literally make almost 2 smaller boxes that can still get the job done.

With the amount of space inside the box, you could literally fit 2 Jungle speed sets inside. So I’m just saying that you could possibly save a bit of money on the materials, and shipping and allow the re-sellers to store more of your product before they sell them to the consumer.

The contents don’t even take up half of the box’s available real estate.

One last thing – YOU MERE MORTALS DARE DESECRATE THE SACRED DUELS WITH FLIMSY PLASTIC? BRING BACK THAT WOODEN TOTEM, OR I SHALL SMITE YOU WITH MY SWORD.
