I like that idea.  It wouldn't be a big investment of development
resources, either, especially if they had it be a contest like the
first Lost IDs was.

It all fits for me, though I admit the lid bulges a tiny bit.

At Origins they had prototypes of game boxes coming out in the next
year or two.  They included a box twice as thick as the standard
Looney Bin box; I'm sure they could use that size for UberChrononauts
if they wanted.

But, does no one have answers to my questions?  I'll repeat them:
