The FedEx guy is now my new best friend, because he just handed me the package about one minute ago!|
First impressions: it's heavy. Package weight 17 lbs, and you can tell. The game boxes are dinky though, really cool and the seethrough plastic doesn't look as tacky as I was expecting. I'll be back in a bit...
