Jagged Earth is in the wild!!!

Just an FYI that a friend of mine received their Jagged Earth box from the Kickstarter! :-o 

He only pledged for the set and the "promot" spirits, so it's likely that's all they're delivering right now. But still, pretty awesome to see it's out in the world! :-D

I didn't back it, unfortunately, but I made myself proxies for Stone's Unyielding Defiance. If all of the new spirits are like Stone, then Jagged Earth will be insanely fun.

Got my tracking number on 7/31. Original delivery date was yesterday 8/3 which was promptly missed, it was never even marked as on the delivery truck. New delivery date is today, finger's crossed.

 

Edit: It did show up yesterday! I only order the Jagged Earth Expansion with the Promo Pack no other addons. Played a game with my son using Vengeance and Stone. It was a blast! 

A bit of confussion when we used the new pressence colors and ended up with an extra one, since in the base game you always used every pressence token, we decided it must be an extra token. Let me know if that is not the case.

This is now a two box game, no way this all fits in the base game box. Still deciding on how best to split contents between the two boxes.

There should be thirteen Presence tokens in each colour.

My Spirit Island never fit in the base box to begin with - I keep a bunch of stuff in the Branch and Claw box already :D. But hopefully I can make it fit a bit better whenever my Jagged Earth arrives as I got the insert thing as well.

I had actually stuck some pieces of hobby-board in my box to lift the lid high enough to hold all the components, using a silicon band to hold it closed. I doubt it's big enough to hold JE, though... :-\

According to a BGG poster it can all fit in the base box: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2479324/it-all-fits

They dropped the rulebooks to make it fit. Still quite impressive. I did the arithmetic on number of layers of cardboard (for the Spirits), and came to the conclusion it might just barely fit.

I can fit all of the base game in the base game box.

Probably depends on what you have all the tokens, invaders, et al contained in...

Our copy came a day early! Happy Jagged Earth to us!

I can't help but notice that last expansion we got a major power that destroyed an island board. But now we have one that creates a new board. Much insanity will ensue, I'm sure....

Now that this box is in my hot little hands, let me tell you all right now that you've got to start thinking about your storage solution. The stacks of cards that come with Jagged Earth stand substantially higher than the top of the plastic inserts that they come in, which means that once you break the plastic wrap, cards are going to go everywhere if you try to keep Jagged Earth stuff in the Jagged Earth box. I was hoping to figure out *something* for full game storage once this expansion came, anyway, but now I've got to do it sooner rather than later, I guess.
