Well worth the investment if you play often as it greatly cuts game set-up and breakdown times. I've found that there is room for everything if you are careful with loading the standees in the appropriate spaces.

I purchased this product and the undead winter organizer were purchased at the same time. With way more pieces, the organizer was pretty good about fitting everything in. The characters & raxxon zombies trays were just barely too small to fit everything with standees. I was able to fit everything in but am worried about damage to some of the standees. We shall see in time.
The acrylic card dividers are nice, but I wish it was slanted like on the undead winter organizer.
Overall, I am impressed with the quality and convenience this product offers. Laser cut wood (i like the smell) was cut well to fit together well. Instructions suggest having a hobby knife, glue, tape, and a soft mallet. I needed none of those tools as everything "snapped" together. I was concerned with taking the pieces out of the holders. The tenons of the pieces are a little too thin and are easy to chip when removing from the holders. I didn't have that problem with the undead winter organizer.
Again, assembly was very easy and fit perfectly into the original box.
Good, but needs a redesign

After reading the reviews here talking about the lack of space I decided to still buy the Long Winter Organizer because I love the one for the base game. It's a quality product as always and I love the use of acrylic for the card separators.
For me, with bases on all standees, the lack of space comes down to needing about 2 or 3 more centimeters of space for the character and experimental standees. By moving a few of the experimental zombies into the bandit tray I'm able to get everything packed in.
If you put the bases on all the standees you are left with 3 empty spaces in the token trays. If you're ok with putting the starvation tokens in with the food tokens then half of one token trays is completely unused. Furthermore if you look at the product pictures here they make it look like the card tray is jam packed. But there's a solid 5 inches of unused space when you put the cards in. The only thing I can think of is that the extra space is to allow storing cards from the base game in this box. That doesn't make much sense to me because you're never going to get the character standees from the base game to fit in this box so why bother storing the cards in it. I'm also left wondering if compatibility with the Meeple Source product was kept at expense of space for the standard tokens.
It's a good product, but I feel like there's enough unused space to allow everything to fit if it spent a little more time at the drawing board.
Response: We really appreciate your feedback and we'd like to take the time to explain our process a bit and why some of the choices were made. Although unsleeved there is room in the card tray, with premium sleeved cards, the card tray is full, really full and we are dedicated to trying to accommodate sleeving in every organizer . Even though you are able to clear some space in the token trays, those are configured to provide the space needed for the thick cardboard location boards. Although we did, after the fact and after receiving multiple questions, reach out to meeple source to see if they fit, they do... no design modifications were made to accommodate Meeple Source tokens. when we design an organizer we research the game pieces and the game play, we go through several prototypes, and we playtest with the organizer to ensure it does all of the following:
1. Fit all the components with no, or minimal, lid lift in a way that enhances storage capacity
2. It accommodates premium sleeved cards if possible
3. The components speed up set up and teardown time
4. Construction of kit is reasonable
5. Cost of materials is kept as low as possible, this means each component lay out must fit on sheets in the most efficient way possible.
We try our best to accommodate as many needs as we can all at once, while still providing a reasonably priced product. And sadly we have not conquered physics, but we will keep trying.
We also legitimately appreciate your feedback and hope this explanation shows the care we put in to the design, but we do listen and upgrade often if feedback can be accommodated.
If you have any further questions or concerns, we would love to chat with you: Support@thebrokentoken.com
Nice storage solution
Posted by William on 12th Dec 2016
This is a nice storage solution. I prefer the compartments style to their other big frame version in the other DoW storage solution. But as everyone else said, the you won't be able to fit all standees with the base. Some need to be left separated
Well worth the investment!

When i got it home i scratched my head a bit at the paper instructions then decided to watch the video. Took a bit of patience but it all goes together fine. Now to load it up!. Even with all bases on i got every thing to fit just fine. You just have to stagger the standees upside down/right side up. And i notice you can put the child zombies in the long slot of the token tray that is designed for the first turn dagger for a little extra room. I will definitely get another organizer from the broken token and will recommend this to all my friends.
RESPONSE: That's awesome!! Love your clever use of the space! Aminda CS Meeple
Not my favorite
Posted by Joey on 7th Dec 2016
I have bought several products from Broken token and absolutely love all of them....except this one. This one is takeaway boxes instead of one big one organizer, which is amazing and super helpful.
Downside is you can't stack them in the box properly with the standees, and if you try, you will damage your other components.
I look at the picture it came with and see zombie standees without plastic bases on them. That should have been the indicator to me that all the standees weren't going to fit in. I get it the idea, but for me, if you take the bases off the standee, it quickly wears them out. Plaid Hat makes quality bases to be put on once, not taken off and replaced. Not sure if that is the concept with this organizer.
I'm sure a better version will come out and I will unfortunately be stuck with this one.
Bottom Line: I totally get that there are a lot of pieces but $30 for what feels like a prototype is disappointing from these guys.
Response: Contact our support department and we'd be happy to arrange a refund or exchange if you aren't happy with the organizer. Unfortunately there's not enough room in the box to store all of the figures with their bases on, without creating a lot more lid lift.
Aminda will be more than happy to help you out !
Great card storage, standee storage a bit less so
Posted by KM Brooks on 29th Nov 2016
In terms of card storage, this insert is far superior to the original Dead of Winter organizer - in the previous one, the diagonal storage made it more cramped, and thick sleeves like Dragon Shields became impossible. Not so with the Long Winter organizer - Dragon Shields on all the cards and there's room to spare for additional promos and paper dividers to separate the crossroads cards of the different modules.
Less great is the standee storage situation, which necessitates the removal of stands. I understand that space is limited, but I find myself under-utilizing the space in the token trays, with a lot of space simply devoted to holding stands. I don't know if it was tried and just didn't work, but I feel like the standee bins could have taken some of the space used by the token bins (at least one of them, anyway).
That said, it's a huge boon to have this around, and it's astounding that the insert is as good as it is given how much stuff needs to fit in that box. If I sound critical in my review, it's simply because The Broken Token has set an extremely high standard for themselves!
RESPONSE: Thanks for the feedback. and appreciate you holding us to our high standards. We do try and look at everything from many angles there are many things that go into the choices we make for sizes and orientation. I can't pretend to know them all those design guys barely speak in terms I can understand :P But I will definitely pass on this information to them as the DO appreciate knowing what the customers love and would like different!

Very solid product.
It does the job intended.
Posted by laurie pereida on 12th Nov 2016
I have both winter games. I played the game without the organizer and used a lot of zip lock baggies for storage. Table space became limited with the additional locations and extra characters.
The limited space is understandable. When the game came in the mail I was surprised at the weight of the game. My brother put the organizer together and he did break a tab before he figured out the protective coating. He thought the black burn mark was a cool design. I'm pretty sure acrylic is more expensive than wood. I like the fit and appreciate the ease of finding the cards.
For the character stands not fitting. We combined crossroad and character cards and we don't separate them. They fit back in the spot. With the extra space we put the standees that give us trouble closing the lid in the other game box. We don't remove any stands. It's easy and we like playing with both games.
I also used wood glue. It dries clear and looks professional. It doesn't take much glue either.
Impress Your Friends
Posted by K. David Woolley on 7th Nov 2016
The video is how I assembled the insert. A few light taps with a rubber mallet made a difference. Glue is needed for experiments and players (but I glued everything using Hot Stuff Super T as I am currently working on some miniatures). Taking the base off a couple of the player characters and a couple of experiments allowed everything to fit very well. Sleeved cards fit fine. Everything is tight as a drum, but its very nice to have everything in its place. Shipping (international), rate exchange, and what have you basically doubles the price of the game, but gives me a pseudo-limited edition pretty game to work out of. Worth the price, excellent quality, video on how to assembled, would recommend to a friend and everyone who has seen it have been impressed.
RESPONSE: Glad you are enjoying it. We hope to have more international stores after the
first of the year so hopefully those shipping and customs cost will come down on future orders!
