Judging a game by its packaging is like judging a book by its cover. Kinda pointless, but let’s face it, we all do that from time to time. So, Captain Obvious will tell us that designing a good game box cover that arouses interest and makes you go “wow, I must leave my money here!” is essential for getting your product out to everyone that doesn’t read game reviews all day.

I just love the “Irritating Stick” one. Simply brilliant.
