The other day I went through a box of series 4 and found two vikings directly next to each other. This reminded me of another incident in which I found 2 or even 3 elves next to each other.

Now I wonder if this is due to coincidential patterns in randomness or if it's maybe due to TLGs packaging methods.

Has this ever happened to you? Might this be a thing?

If so, it could be useful knowledge for January...

[I never came across this is in the CMF threads, feel free to correct me if this is discussed elsewhere.]

Well, if it's vikings You want and have access to a full box in the store...
As the bags are in 3 rows of 20 bags, get these bags:
1st row (from left), bag #10 and #12 from the front of the box
2nd row (from left), bag #4 from the front of the box.
And tadaaa, you have the 3 vikings in the full box. :)

I've been mapping the full unopened boxes for series 4 for sometime now.
And I'd say that they in the same order in the boxes. Ofcourse, during shipping etc they might fall over and under the other bags thus mixing up the map.

Very interesting!

I didn't know there was such a system.

This might be very useful when complete boxes are still available.

If this is true then my experience with the 2 vikings was a coincidence.

Kids, please don't mix the boxes  :wink:
