Some companies have started using, um, normal boxes (the kind with a lid,
as opposed to tuckboxes). Z-Man immediately comes to mind; I think a lot
of the newer / reprinted Rio Grande card games do as well. Same shelf
footprint, and a more user-friendly box. Probably more expensive as well,
though, so I can't really fault the continued use of tuckboxes. No matter
how irritated their flimsiness makes me.

Man, I am /so/ glad that console games come in DVD-sized cases instead of
CD jewelboxes. Now they can make manuals that are /legible/.

It is in the nature of poets to misuse their sources.
