A "double-wide" box is easier to see on a store shelf.  Most companies that sell card games have gone to this format.

I personally hate these types of boxes, but completely understand it's done.  (It's the same reason why computer and console games are one disc in a giant package.  I remember when they used to sell CDs the same way.  Man, I'm old...)

If you really want to slim the box down, don't forget about ee0r's tuckboxes (http://www.ee0r.com/boxes/index.html) and the wonderful automatic box generator ( http://www.cpforbes.net/tuckbox/tuckbox.cgi).  All of my card games are distilled down to these types of boxes for easy transportation.  If you import the PDF templates into an image editing program, you can add all the fancy custom artwork you want before you print them out.

Well I can't disagree, there is the "Ooh, Bigger!" reaction, and the
cover art is just more fun at the larger size.

Ok.. I'll putz with the wiki and see if I can write it up. Smaller
pix, as Kristin suggested, have replaced the larger ones and are up at
Alas, I wasn't smart enough to take process photos while making the
alterations, so the only pictures I have are of the finished box.
