What's In This Board Game Mystery Box?

Remember that special preview package of Futurama Monopoly I unboxed? The company behind that game enjoyed my unboxing so much they’ve sent me another one. But this is not Monopoly, and the property it’s based on ain’t a cartoon. Click through to find out what’s inside this METAL briefcase.

This is no fake. It's a real, rock-solid metal briefcase with its own key. Eyeballing it, I'd say it measures maybe around 8 inches by 4 inches.

After turning the key, I opened it to find this. It's a promo kit for Risk: Metal Gear Solid limited edition!

On the inside, there's a custom-molded foam piece holding three things. The first is this game token in the shape of an Arsenal Ship from MGS4.

The third item in the box is this selection of character cards from the game.

A paper inside the mail package says that this game is available for pre-order starting today and running until November 15th. It also notes that the object of Risk: Metal Gear Solid is to “control the Outer Haven and take over the world.”
