"And there is her reason – simple curiosity! A young acolyte has recalled what all of you, for all your wisdom have forgotten . . . The greatest joy, that of the child with an unopened box!" – Dukhat of The Grey Council, Starider clan, Warrior Caste, of Minbar.

Don't need to over analyze this……just enjoy the sensation. Your inner child anticipating an unopened box. Wonderful.

Perhaps it is about play. Receiving things in a fantastical way, packages to be unwrapped to see what is inside, and finding miniatures to move across a flat service, or pieces to do the same on a game board, seems to be a good bit about play. And the joy and happiness that comes from that.
