I just got my game box inserts from Folded Space today. They are a company out of Sofia, Bulgaria that makes lightweight, board game organizers that fit inside the original game box.
First, they arrive as sheets. You follow the instructions to punch out pieces and fit them together. Folded Space recommends “dry fitting” the pieces together first, and later gluing them once you know how every piece fits Assembly Instructions.
–Some of the sheets
— instruction sheet and my son Oliver putting boxes together
— a bunch of dry-fit boxes
Next you assemble all the components. The instruction sheet shows 1) where each insert goes in the game box and 2) what game pieces go in each insert.
Last, you load up the game pieces into the organizers and stack them in your game box.
Here is a dry-fit example of the game Near and Far:
— the inserts with game pieces
— the fully loaded game box
Folded Space inserts rock! My Near and Far box had previously been a mess of game pieces stuffed into plastic bags. Now it’s organized into neat little trays and everything fits. The box lid does stick up maybe 1cm but that’s a small issue.
Now I have to take everything out and glue the inserts to strength them. Then it’s on to my Folded Space organizers for 7 Wonders, Scythe, Scythe: Rise of Fenris, and Eclipse. Sweet!
