Perfect for this game box
Posted by Deane on 4th May 2017
After hesitating to buy this after reading some of the other more negative reviews, I'm really glad I did. After seeing some of the video reviews I can tell that this insert has been re-engineered at least a couple times. The insert tray that others said they needed to glue was a very snug fit. I did not need glue. Also the tray now has 8 removable dividers. The main insert did require tape on the outside corners and jigsaw pieces, but once it is in the box these are never seen. The game box, with no insert would not be able to hold all the components from all of the expansions, but with this game insert you can still utilize almost all of the soace and organize things how you see fit. This is my 6th or 7th broken token insert and as with previous purchases, I was very happy with this one.
Elegant and classy
Posted by Mark Englehart on 2nd Feb 2017
This organizer keeps my Eclipse game loojing classy in the box and makes it easy to find different components. The large hex tiles fit into a slot with a raised bottom which makes it easy to grab and lift the tiles out. Similarly, a finger grove in the tray makes grabbing tiles easier. Player sheets stack on top of the open tray to keep everything in place even when storing the box on its side.
Assembly is well illustrated and requires some tape and glue but only took about 90 minutes.
It would have been nice if the tray was "game functional" to cut down on set-up time, but that is only a minor quibble.
Overall I am very happy with this purchase.
Less than thrilled
Posted by Larry on 1st Jun 2016
This is the first time I've been less than enthusiastic about an organizer I purchased from Broken Token. There are a couple reasons why. This is the first organizer that absolutely requires glue to stay together. I even had to glue it in to the game box for extra stability. That's something I'm not fond of doing as I try to keep my games in great condition, box and all. Also, this organizer just doesn't seem adequate to hold ALL the bits and pieces. Granted, this game is enormous with bits and tokens and such. I honestly don't know how it could be improved to possibly hold it all. The removable tray certainly won't hold all the cardboard tokens. I'm also not sure why they would have you punch out the bottom of the two middle trays. That seems to limit which tokens can go in there as many of them would fall through the hole to the bottom compartment. I actually ended up bagging all the cardboard tokens and keeping them in the lower compartment anyway. However, you still need the tray to keep the instruction manual and player tableau cards level. All that being said, it's still better than not having an organizer at all and I'm not certain it could be improved much to address the issues mentioned.
Response: Thank you for the feedback. This organizer is one of our earlier models and was designed before the last two expansions. We recognize that a better solution can now be crafted but the limits of the box size are apparent as well. Regarding the slots in the token tray, that is so you can push the tokens up from the bottom to access them. The ship upgrades will fit in those slots without falling through. Feel free to contact our service department for any additional things we might be able to help you with. We want you to be happy with your purchase and will work with you to make sure that happens.
Shadows of the Rift
Posted by Zarathud on 19th Mar 2016
How does the organizer hold up after 2 years and buying every expansion including Shadows of the Rift? Well, Ship Pack One takes up a LOT of space and now there's finally no way to physically fit everything into the box -- but the organizer will still work with a few small sacrifices. (1) The upgrade tiles can fit into the token tray, except for the blank "make your own" tiles. (2) Thin out 4 rule summary cards (Development Overview x2, Anomaly Die, Ancient Overview), there's two of them anyway. (3) Shadows of the Rift leaves no room for the basic Human ships from the base set (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Black, White), but when was the last time you had players use the boring ships after Ship Pack One anyway? (4) There's not enough room for the homeworld tiles to fit in the tile stack, but the extras will fit underneath the token tray. The dice can fit underneath the tiles. (5) Put bags with those massive Planta (Green) and Orion (Black) Ship Pack One ships in the bottom with 9 population cube trays, next to the homeworld tiles. (6) Draw bags fit in the area next to the token tray, with the wood on top to help everything lay flat.
With the above accommodations, the box can fit almost everything with only a small box lift about the size of the rule books. The insert could use a slight redesign of the token tray and the hex stack, but it's still very impressive that so much still fits in the original game box...as long as you're willing to give up the human ships from the base set.
Works well for one expansion
Posted by Richard Soderberg on 19th Mar 2016
This organizer was a lifesaver. It made it possible to play Eclipse with half the setup time. We're not buying the 2015 expansion until we the organizer is re-released with support for it, somehow.
Good for ditching (most of) the bags, but not great otherwise.

Sturdy and good looking
Room for everything
Easy to put together
Design could be better - there is no real space for player pieces, they just sit in bags under the token holder.
Not super clear where everythings goes
The 'lid' for the space for the player pieces is nearly superfluous - it's not attached to anything, so it just bounces around in the box
FInal thoughts: this inset is okay. It's definitely better and quicker than bags. Just having a void for bags of player pieces seems like such a cop out, though. I would have gladly paid more for an organizer that takes them into account. I'm underwhelmed, but still pleased with the purchase.
Very difficult to assemble and not spacious enough for expansions
Posted by Unknown on 12th Feb 2016
Had great trouble assembling it as some pieces that fit issues and needed to be taped together not to fall apart. Biggest disappointment is that it does not fit the expansions.
Response: With the release of the latest expansion, the box physically can't hold it all. Feel free to contact us via email so we can make sure you're happy with the purchase.

One of the biggest pains for this game is trying to find the right tiles, but the token tray for this insert does not organize the tokens. Instead, they are all just lumped together which does not make searching/organizing easy.
Secondly, the compartments for the Hexagonal Tiles are too tight a fit, making it really tough to fit the tiles in without possibly damaging them eventually.
If this was my first and only insert from Broken Token, I would probably swear off Broken Token forever. However, I have bought other inserts from Broken Token before in the same order and they work great - just skip this one.
Response: It's true that this is one of our first organizers and not as refined as the rest. When we started designing organizers two years ago, we were paving the way and many of the features you see in the industry today are from things we've pioneered during those two years. This needs a redesign but is not as high a priority as other games according to what our customers ask for. So until then, the old Eclipse is still available and reviews like yours will help people decide if its something they'd like to invest in, or not. Thank you for the feedback.
Disappointed for the first time
Posted by David on 8th Sep 2015
Let me start by saying I have been amazed with the broken tokens products until now. Honestly the eclipse organizer is pretty disappointing. First, it is a pain to build which is unusual for their products. Particularly the large portion of the insert which fills the box. This is the first time I have had to use tape to build the insert. Second, the token tray would have been considerably better had they included more dividers and also dividers for the tech tiles. There is no way to divide the tech tiles in the token tray. The base set tech tiles don't fill up the space in the tray so I had to rig something to hold the tiles up so they don't fall and turn into a big mess. The dividers for the rest of the tiles aren't properly spaced either. It seems like the insert would only be worth having if you're willing to buy every expansion just so the insert works.
Response: We are sorry you aren't happy with the purchase. Please contact us via email.
Just make a dry run
Posted by David Woodford on 7th Jul 2015
From previous reviews, I knew that the frame, when finished, would be a fantastic organizer for my copy of Eclipse (with one expansion). I was a little worried about some reviews that said it was difficult to put together. Like I used to do with my plastic model airplanes 40 years ago, I just put the insert together dry first, and sanded the tabs a little when their fit was too tight. After the "dry" run, I put it together with glue and let it set for a day. It works great!
