There is something satisfying about popping tiles from their spigots, or sticking stickers onto meeples. For me more satisfying than popping bubble wrap.
So I'm glad I had this to do this afternoon for Carcassonne Star Wars. It's that new game thing, where you are popping components, bagging various bits, organising everything. There is a reasoning behind this, having everything organised means faster setup when you come to play the game.
But even without that organising bit you still need to pop that cardboard. And that is soooo satisfying.
It's a shame that when I buy a used game that I'm denied that pleasure, but hey can't have everything especially if it's a hard to get out of print boardgame.
