Set up and start playing faster with the system of removable trays: 5 player board replacements with built-in resource trays, 2 removable resource trays and a special tile tray. Organize your cards (sleeved or unsleeved) in a removable card “shoe” ready for drawing and discarding. Plus, take off to Mars in style with an upgraded rocket first player token, and replacement acrylic Generation, Temperature, and Oxygen Markers.
Note: The organizer and base game will allow the lid to close flush. If expansion board(s) are added there may be a small lid lift of the thickness of those boards.

Absolutely great product. Makes set-up a breeze. Looks amazing. I painted the parts a nice glossy red, and made custom backs for the player trays that were each based on a Star Wars character. Each player tray was painted in a color matching it's cubes.

Great design and a joy to put together! They really do a great job with these.
Terraforming Mars insert

An excellent product that turns a very good game into an excellent one. I highly recommend that anyone with Terraforming Mars get this insert.
Another great BT organizer... with a couple caveats
Posted by Eric Jack on 6th Nov 2017
I have several BT inserts and they are always well worth the purchase price. They make a game easier to set up and put away, and often make playing the game easier as well. This insert is no exception. The replacement player trays not only help store your player cubes, but make sure they all stay in place during play. Note that you will no longer use the original paper mats at all. The easy access to hex tiles, metallic cubes, and cards make playing and storage a breeze!
There are a couple caveats though. The special hex tile rack, and the replacement first-player token and heat/oxygen/generation tokens and their storage boxes seem over-engineered and frivolous. I wonder if the organizer would have been better served reserving some space for expansions. As it is, the Hellas & Elysium expansion board won't fit in the box without lid-lift and allowing the player cubes in the top tray to scatter. I also found markings on the player trays to be adequate, but inconsistently dark. (Some trays are easier to read than others.)
Overall, a winner. But just short of a full 5-stars.

The pieces all fit very snugly together and create an organizer that feels like it'll last longer than the box it sits in. Note: You have to remove the liner because the pieces are so precisely cut that there is no more room for it. The wood is very sturdy, which is good because some of the trays bowed a fair bit before we got them to fall into place. Otherwise, very much on par with their other organizers.
Great with some Small flaws

I received this broken token insert around 5 days ago and have played the game twice since receiving it. The quality is great! It makes the experience a lot better because there is no accidental bump of the table that moves your tokens around making it hard to remember where your resources were it. It looks great as all Broken Token inserts do.
I only have a couple complaints. The trays for the bronze, silver, and gold pieces are a little hard to get in and out of. This is a VERY minor complaint, it doesn't hurt the experience that much. And it is actually very nice to have two separate areas for players to grab resources from. Another issue I had was the box not sitting perfectly flush with everything in it, I may have not set everything in the box correctly but it was only made worse when trying to pack the Hellas and Elysium expansion board in the box. I was disappointed by this as it seems that other Broken Token inserts have done a good job of accounting for expansions. Again, this is somewhat minor.
RESPONSE: Unfortunately physics won and we decided a little lid lift was a small price to pay for making the components work the way we thought was best for storage and game play, we hope you agree.
My biggest complaint was with the acrylic tokens. Mine came unfinished. They are not as shown in the picture and have writing from the wood on the tokens. They look very out of place and I spent some time trying to figure out what it said on the tokens when I first received them before I realized it was because they were unfinished.
RESPONSE: They are indeed finished --- merely in hiding. What you are seeing is the protective backing that is on the acrylic to save it from getting burned during the cutting process. If you peel that off they will look awesome!!
Other than the few complaints its a great addition to the game and the player trays really enhance the game experience.
Must have item for TM

With the player boards being so easily bumped or cubes knocked out of place you need something to make the game pop better. The storage is amazing. I do wish there was covers for the currency storage because if you put the game on it's side for carrying purposes they move around in transit. But the storage is fantastic!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!
Actually kind of in awe.

I'm a big fan of inserts for my favorite games, and shop different companies trying to find the best one for whichever game. I've always been fortunate in that I haven't yet gotten one I didn't like. With that in mind, BT's Terraforming Mars insert is truly sick (I think the kids are using that to describe something positive). It does the job, and the video will show that they go above and beyond in making the essential player trays and markers that are actually used in game. What the video doesn't show is the sheer brilliance in the spatial design, and if there's one thing I love, it's higher than anticipated results regarding spatial design. Well done BT. Pleasure doing business (shipping was also ridiculously faster than I had planned for)
Enhances game play too!

TM is a game that has a lot of cards and bits, and the TM Organizer does a fine job of helping keep things sorted when stored. However, probably the more important aspect of this Organizer is that parts of it can be used during gameplay, and in a substantial fashion.
More specifically, the stock player cards upon which players track aspects of their own economy are mere cards upon which you put cubes to track production and cubes to track actually produced things (e.g., credits, steel, titanium, bio, power, and heat). During gameplay, it is quite easy to accidentally move your own player card and send the cubes sliding.
The TM organizer has 5 player "trays" that are designed to replace those cards. They are formed just like the cards, but more importantly, (1) they are slotted on the 6 production scales (so they can't get easily dislodged), (2) they have inset areas for the 6 produced items (so your one steel doesn't slide over to become one credit), and (3) all of the card is surrounded by a tray about a quarter of an inch thick. This is easily my most favorite aspect of this organizer - reaching out beyond mere storage, it actually helps game play.

The gold standard for game boxes. Not only does this create much better holding pens for the game tokens, but actually makes the game significantly easier to play with the player boards. And it all fits in the original box! Accept no substitutes, if you own Terraforming Mars this is almost a requirement.
