I have over a dozen Broken Token organizers and they are all excellent. But this organizer has the most dramatic effect on gameplay that I've seen so far. The player trays are outstanding. They clean up the table nicely, but more importantly they keep all resource production cubes in their correct places without the worries of bumping or sliding that accompany the original player mats. I recommend looking on boardgamegeek for a player tray insert that you can print, laminate, and place in the base of the Broken Token trays. They add a lot of color and make the trays look gorgeous. I also like that the cubes are all stored in the trays, which are then stored directly in the box. There is no placing the cubes in some separate storage container that you later need to sort out. Just open the box, hand someone a tray, and you are most of the way ready to play. I had originally purchased the Meeple Realty organizer, but I found it lacking in several ways. In my opinion, this Broken Token organizer is superior in every way.
Very nice organizer, although the assembly itself could be done better.

The organizer in itself is very nice, it's pretty nice that it fits neatly into the game's box. The assembly in itself could be done a bit better though, at least in my opinion, because sometimes the pieces required wood glue (not provided) to fix looser parts together, and other times the pieces were too tight and they splintered (happened around 4-5 times for the whole assembly, which is not that big of an issue).
Not bad, but could be better

When I originally bought TM Broken Token hadn’t yet produced a storage solution for the game. At that time there’s was a hack solution using the Imperial Settlers storage kit as a stand in. This solution worked great, had lots of extra space, was quick to assemble, but required some cutting to allow the board to fit properly.
I discovered this just recently and decided to give it a try out of curiosity. I actually find that I prefer the imperial settler’s solution to this one. There’s a couple reasons for this:
1) Storage for the tokens is a poor fit, particularly the colored player tokens. The IS boxes worked better than the goofy spaces provided in this kit.
2) A lot of the space is taken up with the player trays that replace the player cards. I think these could be done in a much more elegant way that would save space for other uses.
3) The board still doesn’t quite fit in the box correctly. The board sits too high in the box for the lid to fit down properly.
4) There’s more than enough space in the box for the expansions, but this insert was clearly not designed with that in mind. Something to be aware of if you were hoping for a way to store all your TM parts together.
At the end of the day this kit gets the job done, which is why it gets a three. With some careful planning in the layout I think a much more efficient design could be created. As is, it barely meets the most basic requirements.

The only downside that is expressed in the directions is you might want to purchase some wood glue because some of the pieces can be lose and for long term wear it is an added help. But overall this is worth the money. it is so much more fun to play with all the added parts. This is a weekly game we play and just having all of these working parts just completely adds to the game. Now every time we purchase a new game we see what type of organization is available because it is so worth the experience.

Player and Token Trays enhance the play of the game. Other items are all helpful in setup and storage.
Assembly does take time. Glue should be used on all items that will be handled often -- such as player and token trays. It should also be used on other items that don't fit together tightly. I found the use of a rubber-headed mallet essential. Pressing with fingers felt like it might snap some of the pieces. The mallet applied the pressure uniformly on the pieces and eliminated that concern. Using a hammer and block of wood would produce the same result.

Have a history of messing up, when I try to assemble things. This was very easy and straight forward to assemble. I actually had fun putting it together. Does a great job of organizing everything.
Well done and very useful for the Terraforming Mars game

This is a very nice product overall and one that I would recommend to anyone who owns the Terraforming Mars Game. The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is that hex token tray is difficult to put together correctly and the instructions are not as clear
as they could be. I misassembled it 3 times before I got it right. A good thing I didn't use superglue. Also Broken Tokes recommends a mallet. I found it to be a necessity. A few taps of a mallet got a long way towards good assembly. Most of the parts friction fit but keep some white wood glue handy. You can add some color to your trays with downloadable paper inserts, which I recommend. The Organizer not only helps organization and set but is a huge help in play. Well done.
Just What I needed

Pro's = keeps the game organized divides the city tiles and currency tokens in half perfectly. Comes with cool rocket first player maker. Acrylic oxygen, temperature and generation markers in different colors. A special holder for the special tiles. The player boards are great to keep markers in place, with fitting in the box properly. Didn’t need any tools to assemble. Fits in the box perfectly.
Cons – the instructions denote A, B, C, D etc. but the sheets of wood are only marked with sheet # but without the parts being marked with the appropriate letter. It feels like balsa, which common for crafting, but not is known for durability.
Special cases – My special tile holder came with one piece slightly broken, completely useable. I haven’t reached out to Broken Token yet on this.
My Recommendations – for the buyer, take your time, enjoy the process. It snaps together like Legos, have wood glue and a small mallet just in case as well as a hobby knife. For Broken token, label the pieces better on the sheets within the borders so that it makes assembly easier, perhaps for some less dexterous people have an up charged version that is shipped assembled, as I know the assembly process could deter some people from this case

Yes, my title is a bit on the nose. But it is truly game changing. What was once a frustrating exercise to organize all of the cubes and tokens prior to a session, is now a cinch. If you, like me, don't have much free time for board gaming due to life's constraints, the organizer will get you in the game in minutes. Assembly was pretty easy, and it does come with a well illustrated manual to guide you through assembling each piece.
The player boards are a god send. Not only does it allow you to play the game worry free if your children or pets bump the table and send your game state into disarray, but the player cubes can actually be stored in the gaming tray itself! Speeding up game setup and breakdown even more! Brilliant design, honestly.
The etched wood for the player board sections are nice, but there is also a user-created inlay on BGG that can be printed to fit inside of the player tray for a touch more color. Between the inlay and Broken Token player boards, we get a product that is both extremely functional but also quite eye-pleasing and easy to use.
Although it was easy to assemble, I do recommend taking extra care when assembling the card tray. The rocket cutout design on the sides are thematic, but can be a bit fragile when applying force to assemble it. I also sleeved my cards and found they can sometimes "hang" on the rocket cutouts when returning cards to the tray. Not a big deal though. With an insert this nice, I really had to nitpick to find things that could be improved.
It is on the pricey side, but well worth it if this is a game that will often see your table.
I don't own any of the expansion content, so I'm not sure how well they will fit into this insert if you want to consolidate everything into one box.
Essential box organizer AND game aid!

First off, the game comes with absolutely no game organization inserts or bags at all. It is has a lot of lovely pieces that you'll want to keep sorted, and no way to do that. As always, The Broken Token organizer does a masterful job of separating everything, and neatly Tetrising back into the original box. I especially like having the communal tokens split equally into two trays so you can have one at each end of the board so everyone can reach at least one token source.
But the biggest selling point for me in this product are the player trays. The game comes with a flat, printed mat for each player used to organize the production rate and current amount of six different resources. To avoid having to create six (or more) different token types, the game instead comes with very nice, shiny gold, silver, and bronze cubes (of different sizes for easy differentiation for the color blind) which are used as counters for all resources (ingenious, IMO). However, this means that one slight bump of the play mat or even the table can shift cubes from one resource area to another, or move production counters off their track leaving players to have to remember where everything was and hope to correctly restore the game state.
The BT player trays, however, provide a multi-layered inset of boxes laser etched to show which resources go where, what they are used for, and accompanying, nested boxes on the production tracks so your tracking cube cannot easily be dislodged from its current state. There is even a separate pool area to keep your unused player tokens, and each tray is just deep enough for its intended use, but shallow enough that when the trays are nested on top of each other, the tokens cannot be dislodged from their space or the tray while stored in the box. Crazy useful for this game!
