Have a look at the box prototype...

Dear MU Scholars,

Our $100K Stretch Goal was an upgrade to a deluxe box with a hinged lid - and here's the prototype! Our graphic designer Ian O'Toole has done a wonderful job making the game box resemble an old tome, of the kind you would find on the shelves at Miskatonic University. It even has an Orne Library "Restricted Collection - Not To Be Removed" docket on the inside cover. When closed, the horrific secrets of the Restricted Collection stay firmly enclosed by the box's magnetic seal.

We have approved the prototype, including the blanks of the cards, player desks, and rulebook inside. Take a look...

Printing is going to start very soon, so we remain on track for our delivery as promised by November.

We are also gearing up to get the PDF diplomas and graduate student forms available for download, along with the high-level backers rewards (framed diplomas and plaques).

As always, thank you for supporting our Kickstarter

      I hope it will be big enough to hold cards in protective sleeves.

      Ooh, I spoke too soon! Thanks for the reply!

      Also, I wasn't trying to be mean, or facetious. There are lots of project creators that don't check the comments on updates, so I just thought you were one of them.

      Thanks again for checking back here! :)

      There will be an insert in the box so things don't rattle around so much.

      Oh, this must be one of those companies that makes an update, then never goes back to read the comments... that's a shame :(

      It looks great. I am with Euan; I hope we can get that back cover sheet as something that comes off or is just held in with the wrapping. Great.

      It looks great, like others have said it's better than I was expecting, one thing I'd like to know is the thing on the back with the barcode a sticker or removable in any way?

      Looking great!

      Will there be an insert though? I hate the thought of the cards and other components just sitting loose in the box. :)

      Wow! I would totally buy an empty box to use as a monster cup for other games!
