I was very impressed with the quality of the finished product; the overall finish, the print quality, the weight; it felt substantial, not flimsy or cheap. One of the compromises that I'm very glad happened was the finish of the game box itself. Initially I wanted a gloss finish, because that's more in line with the prototype I had created. The manufacturer said that a matte finish would look better, I doubted it, but this was one thing they felt very strongly about, and so I trusted their judgement. I was not disappointed at all! I'm very VERY happy with the final result. Design-wise, my goal was to produce something that would be able to stand up and compete with anything else on the market visually AND in terms of quality. I think I have achieved that with this product.
