Tales of Monkey Island Deluxe Edition – The Unboxening!

IMG_2504

Man oh man, I feel like I’ve been waiting for this bad boy to ship forever and a day now. Back when Telltale Games first started releasing the Tales of Monkey Island Episodes they said they’d ship a physical copy when the season was over. It’s been a long time coming but those of us that ordered the special edition are finally getting theirs. There was never a definiteive answer from Telltale about what was holding up the shipments, but it doesn’t matter anymore. The episodic games that continue the story of my favorite video game of all time is finally in my greedy little hands and I just couldn’t help but share pictures! It’s quite an awesome boxset and includes the following:

  • Tales of Monkey Island Collector’s DVD which includes the full season game, plus bonus extras like commentaries, wallpapers, etc.
  • Slipcover case art from Monkey Island art legend Steve Purcell — if you missed out at pre-order time
  • Exclusive Voodoo card, not found in the Voodoo Card Set (available separately)
  • One of Reginald Van Winslow’s favorite maps: The Gulf of Melange printed on cotton fabric
  • Piratey Piece of Eight – metal collectible coin
  • Coaster from the notorious Club 41
  • Souvenir button from the Trial of the Century (2.25 inches diameter)

Let’s get on with the unboxing pictures!
