A Slightly-Imperfect Must-Have
Posted by K-Sen on 22nd Feb 2016
First time I played Castles of Mad King Ludwig, the person who owned the game had this very organizer, and I was impressed. When I bought my own copy of the game, I had to get one (especially since the game's idea of organization was a couple ziplocks in an otherwise empty box).
Lets get the negative out of the way first...
First is the same complaint I would likely have for almost every Broken Token product - lack of lids. When stored upright, pieces don't stay in their assigned trays. At a third the cost of the game itself, it's a letdown when the organizer doesn't keep things, well, organized. Transporting to-and-from games night, storing it on the shelf, I find cards and tokens sliding into the wrong spaces. I keep the money bagged because it's the worst offender for moving around.
Second issue is with the along-the-box-edge frame that the two removable trays rest upon. Something sticking out a bit at the mid-point would be a good addition, because the flexible nature of both the wood rails and the cardboard box, I find the middle tray often falls into the space beneath. Minor issue, but irritating nonetheless.
On to the positives.
First, it's a damn beautiful organizer. The etched labels for tray contents, the way "large" and "small" rooms are divided properly between the two removable trays, the open-front card storage, and that the two trays keep everything so clean (no toppled piles, no spilled cards), love it all. Having these two trays removable was pure genius, and that the not-removed frame holds things you don't need after setup was brilliant.
You need to be careful assembling the frame, and use weighted objects to hold it flat after assembly while the glue dries, or it could end up warped or lopsided, and this is one of the more difficult to assemble sets of the four I bought. But this is worth every penny. I would not play Ludwig without it.
Quicker setup and teardown

This is much nicer than having all of those plastic baggies. Each room size is in it's own section with the exception of stairs and hallways. The only suggestion I would have is to make the money sections separate so that it can be placed and easily passed around the table when needed.
It was a little tricky putting together, but a little patience was all it took.
Solves the set up!

If you're like me, your excitement of opening Castles of Mad King Ludwig the first time was soon shadowed by the plethora (A PLETHORA) of plastic baggies. That's fine, if you want to take HOURS to get your game of Castles set up and put away. Or, you can get this organizer. Everything fits, everything has a home and, most importantly, it's easy to get out and play. The trays are removable so if you didn't feel like removing each component, you can just pull the trays out and place them right on the table. It's well designed, with enough punchouts and holes that even the tiniest piece is still really easy to remove from the tray, yet won't move around in the box as you transport and shelve your game.
As far as Broken Token organizers I've put together goes, this is one of the slightly more complex ones, but don't let that deter you. Just set aside some time and patience on a quiet afternoon to glue, assemble and marvel at your handiwork and before you know it, you'll be so glad you don't have thirty baggies to deal with every game.
Keeps all the small bits separated, but...

First off, I think this was the best fitting organizer of the 4 I got (Suburbia, Dominion, and Manhattan Project). I think I had to spot glue once or twice, but otherwise all the pieces fit very snugly together and very snugly in the box, with no reinforcement necessary. We'll see how well my minimalist approach stands the test of time, as this game comes off my shelf frequently.
Generally speaking, I like the way the organizer is designed, with just 2 gripes. 1) I wasn't fond of having to dump the stairways and hallways into the same bin. 2) The area beneath the pull-out trays, where the player aid cards, barbicans, and moats are stored, is a disorganized mess. Surely there was something that could've been done down here, if nothing more than subdividing the area to keep the barbicans and moats from sliding around willy nilly?
I was originally using the pull-out trays in place of the original layout boards that came with the game. Now I think it's a mistake to do this, since you don't use all of the rooms in each stack. I think it may work better to assemble each stack, then put the rooms you're not using back into the trays, and put the rooms you are using on the layout boards as usual. Even so, this organizer does a much better job than having a dozen or so ziploc bags that you have to open and close each time you play the game. Setup and tear down is a lot faster, and that's the whole point of the organizer, isn't it?
Super handy, a bit tricky to assemble

We've long been talking about having a better insert/system to organize the pieces for this game we love so much, so this was a great find. It arrived promptly, and really is well done. Our one complaint was the lack of clear instructions that made for slightly tricky assembly. The photos on the package were helpful, but unless you've got some experience building small models, you might have trouble getting the exact pieces to line up.
Everything did snap together well though, and we didn't need any glue to keep things held tight.

I'm NOT good at putting things together, but I got this done in less than 30 minutes. All the pieces fit together very well and I took the advice on using glue on the loose and outside joints. It's SO much easier setting up and tearing down this game now! I love it!

Left me first say that I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. The insert arrived quickly and safely and the build was both easy and fun. The only glue required was one corner of the base tray, but tape alone would have sufficed. Besides that a soft mallet and a hobby knife made things a breeze. The finished product is a wonderful blend of form and function that looks quite attractive and keeps thing neatly organized in labeled sections. The pieces are very easy to remove from the bins and the removable trays keep everything tidy on the board during play as well if desired. I personally love this product and recommend it highly.
Would love to like it more...

Let's get one thing out of the way. For a game like this you NEED an organizer. Like other Broken Token organizers, this one does a superb job helping you keep control over all the bits and pieces that come with this fun game. Here's why I scored it lower: Maybe I got a lemon but unlike all the other Broken Token organizers I own, which all fit perfectly, this is off. The trays in particular seem a little bit too small and don't sit perfectly on the main part and instead slide down on one side. Also, unlike the other organizers I had to use a lot more glue to hold all pieces safely in place. In addition, in the assembly there is one sticky point. One piece looks perfectly symmetrical but actually isn't, and if you put it in the wrong way around you end up with something that looks very wrong and took me a while to figure out.
All in all, still happy with it but at least my copy didn't live up to the Broken Token standard I am used to.

This is my second favorite insert from BrokenToken. (Caverna is my favorite)
The way everything is sorted and labeled in the wood to help organize saves so much time and makes the game more enjoyable to play.
I especially like the fact that the insert can be taken out and used to draw cards from instead of putting all the piles on the main board and knocking them all over.
This is light years better than the dozens of ziplock bags the game comes with for storage.
Highly recommend this.
Their Best Engineered Insert Yet
Posted by Dan on 17th Dec 2015
First let me say that I have four or five Broken Token inserts and they all do an excellent job of mitigating the tedium of set-up for the games they are in. When I say best engineered, I mean that fit and tolerances of this particular insert are way above any other that I have seen from them. All of the joints were tight and secure (save the large frame that will remain in the box which is a non-issue). In fact, I only needed to use glue on one piece.
So why four stars instead of five? I have a fair reason and an unfair one. Fair, I really don't know where expansions will go beyond secrets, unless you start to double up on some bins. Unfair, the game isn't a favorite of mine, so the insert doesn't add to some pre-existing awesomeness.
