Unpacking New Games

Seasons: http://www.amazon.com/Asmodee-SEAS01USASM-Seasons/dp/B008A2BA90

  1. Buy a variety of sizes of craft bags
  2. Punch out pieces carefully, punch from the front
  3. Put the cardboard sheets from the punching out under the insert in the box so it retains the same level as snugness as it did before.
  4. Shake the box around to make sure pieces stay put, if not, bag them.
  5. On games that are hard to pack back up, use return address labels on the craft bags to know what to pack back where
  6. Use the internet if you are unsure how a game goes back in the box.
