I am very happy with the Mighty Fine Edition of the Big Damn Crate, it is the most elegant, beautiful, functional storage solution for Firefly: The Game, and it is worth every penny. Clearly attention to detail and care was top priority, and if you are a big fan of the game and are sick of bringing it around in 2 to 3 boxes, this is the perfect solution!
Mighty fine review! Many thanks!
by Robert Braunstein
I have the Firefly Game plus all the expansions and was trying to figure out the best way to store when I saw what the Broken Token was doing. It's hard to believe but all the expansions do fit nicely into the one box and the quality is fantastic. I'm very glad I bought this.
How wonderful to hear! Aim to Play More Games!!
A Perfect Purchase for a fan who can afford it.
by B. Marquez
An awesome means of storage for the core game and all the expansions. It even fits cards that you sleeve (which I do for nearly all of my games).
It makes set up a lot easier thanks to the modular nature of the box itself. Its solid construction and has an nice finish to it. I am glad I was able to get one of these.
Yes the one you put together yourself is cheaper, but if you can afford it, I highly recommend putting in the extra for the quality work you get for it.
RESPONSE: Yeah this makes us so happy to hear, it's why we do what we do!! Enjoy!
Big Damn Crate is Really Damn Cool
I like the crate. It fits everything. With sleeves, some of the decks take up the slot for the deck and the discard, but that doesn't bother me. There is also no real space for any other expansions, but I'm not sure what could be added to the game at this point (non vanity expansions).
Awesome but with opportunity for improvement
by Jochen B.
I'm extremely happy with this absolute beautiful crate. It's not really a cheap acquisition but I don't regret anything.
2 suggestions for improvement:
- There is no possibility to choose a color for the finished crate. I can imagine that the crate would look great in glowing purple with yellow letters. Or in black with light red letters. Or in green with golden letters. ...
- There is no overview which tray was meant to keep which cards.
But all together a complete jewel in my collection.
Thank you for making this happen.
RESPONSE: Glad to hear you are happy with it. I love the idea of a purple crate :D I don't know if even more personalized choices will be something we add on for future Limited Editions but it is certainly a fun idea. I'm pretty sure that would increase the cost even more but you never know , upgrades could be fun. We have had the feedback on the card placement and are taking that into consideration for upcoming projects, but in this particular case you can really feel free to set it up the way that makes the most sense for you!!

Amazing Beautiful box
The thought and detail that when into creating this masterpiece is unbelievable. This crate is far more than a storage tool but a complete organization achievement. Plenty of space for expansions. Spaces for both the used and unused decks of cards, Reducing necessary table space to play. The amount of effort I can see they had to do to stain, sand, felt, and together the contents of this are worth more then the cost to purchased it. It's so Shiny!
RESPONSE: From one gamer to another, thank you for your kind words. We love this project and it means a lot to know it appreciated and most importantly it gets the game to the table more, that is ultimately our goal! Game On My Friend - CS Meeple, Aminda
A Work of Art!!!
So excited when we finally received our Big Damn Crate, Mighty Fine Edition. The craftsmanship was flawless and the attention to detail was superb. We couldn't be more pleased with the work Broken Token did on this box. I would highly recommend their products to any avid gamer looking for storage solutions!
Tracey fits snug as a bug
The Big Damn Crate is a spectacular piece of craftsmanship, enhancing gameplay and providing a beautiful way to keep it all together. We happened to be playing Firefly when it was delivered. We were only playing the basic game due to space constraints, but that changed as soon as we loaded up the BDC. It makes setup, game play, and clean up so much easier. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys playing Firefly.
RESPONSE: This makes our day!~!!! Thanks!
Shny, Shiny, Shiny!!!
by Phil Wardlow
This arrived in the mail a few days ago and I opened it right away. It is absolutely incredible!!! The stain, the felt, the look, the size, everything is high quality and I couldn't be happier.
That said, the one MINOR improvement would be to include a sheet to display the recommended component storage of this Crate.
I can't wait to use it, as it allows the decks to be pulled directly from storage in the Crate, and placed on the table. This will keep the game, while being played, well organized, as well.
RESPONSE: OH we love to hear this!! The MFE's have been a labour of love around here and knowing they have gone to good homes makes us very happy! We have had a few people ask about "where does this go" information and it's something we are looking to add to the website and videos. Hopefully the current website pictures help a little and if you are ever in doubt just contact us we'll help you figure it out!
Terrific and fully assembled
Firefly typically requires a great deal of table space. With the Big Damn Crate all of the cards are organized for play requiring a much smaller footprint. It also includes two identical boxes to organize all of the counters and tokens -- one for each side of the table. It even has locking holders for all of the ships and dice plus a spot for the game mat. This is a perfect addition to the game.
Very nice, very classy organizer for the serious Firefly pilot.
by Dave Young
This nicely finished product is well worth the added price and longer wait time. It holds the entire game, with all the expansions. Highly recommended!
It is a really shiny Big Crate
Just received mine this week. The finish was great and I am so glad i went for the limited edition assembled one. I do not think i could have had it come out so nice on my own. My only complaint is as mentioned before , outside the acrylic token box and the cash tray , none of the other slots are labeled and there was no image suggesting a basic setup. It would have been a nice touch to either have the slots named or some sort of clip / tag that could be attached to identify which cards are where, especially when vertical in the box it may be hard to identify which is which.
RESPONSE: That is excellent feedback. This was our first limited edition run in our craftsman series, we will definitely consider this input for other kits. If you ever have questions about set up feel free to message us. We are trying to have setup videos for everything and have the pictures be more helpful for placement!
Worth Every Penny
by Brother Jim
I am absolutely delighted to have received and put to use the Mighty Fine Edition. I have been a customer of Broken Token for years and always found them thoughtful regarding their design and responsive to their customers. This was the big purchase for me and was worth every penny. Every little detail is just so ingeniously devised and so carefully put together. It's beautiful in form and elegant in function. The small touches -- how the boards fit snugly on top, how the mat rolls tightly and just above the ships, how the cards are so easily stored and stacked flexibly the way that works best for different tables -- really make this product shine(y). I suppose why I'm so excited is that it actually enhances the experience of playing and owning a game I already owned, making the game which was a prized possession into a treasure. I hope this is the first of many such editions in the future. Well done, Broken Token. Thanks for being so much better than you had to be; I can tell that this was a work of love by fans, for fans.
RESPONSE: It is truly a joy to hear this. We are indeed fans and players and this one in particular has been a labour of love! Our ultimate goal is to get games that we love to play to the table more often. Reviews like this keep us going and motivated to bring you the organizers and storage solutions that make this hobby even more fun! Thanks again for taking the time to share! -The Broken Token Family
Worth Every Penny
by Brian Giese
This item exceeded expectations. It holds everything very well and makes the play area more manageable.
RESPONSE - Yeah!!! Can't wait to see it in action all over the world :D
This things is perfect! Perfect design and craftmanship! Plenty of room for expansions if you use the discard slots for current cards. Fantastic from top to bottom! I'll be passing this on in my will!
RESPONSE: Grinning from ear to ear!! We love hearing how the crates have found happy homes!!
by William Creighton
I love this organizer. The fact that they made it for Firefly means someone at BT like this game as much as I do. I had alternate bases for my ships, and had to modify the ship holders, but it was easy. I now have an heirloom quality copy of Firefly.
RESPONSE: it's true there are quite a few fans of the game here : D Glad you enjoy it, we'd love to see your modifications: firstname.lastname@example.org
Great product, but on the pricey side.
by Charlie Z.
First of all, I adore this product. My only complaints are nit-picky, but I think that's warrented considering the price paid for this fully assembled, limited edition game display/organizer. When the box arrived, one of the pieces holding together the firefly ship display box had come apart in transit. Under inspection, it was due to no glue being aplied on that piece (strange, since that's the recommendation in the instructions my other Broken Token products arrived with), it made me wonder was the rest of the box built using glue, or will there be more simple fixes in my future? Again, this was an easy fix, I just applied glue to the piece. My only other complaint is the lack of instructions. For the price, a simple pamphlet containing the instructions for how the Firefly contents were intended to be organized would be fantastic. As it is, I'm looking at the tiny product display pictures listed here on my phone in order to identify and assemble as intended. A minor inconvenience at worst, but still would have been a nice consideration for the price, especially considering shipping wasn't covered. I part with money rarely (I don't have much to part with) so I'm hyper-critical of products when I do.
I say again; this product is beautifully made. And it's definitely a bragging rights situation to have the limited edition version, the red velvet is a wonderful touch. The above are just nit-picking criticisms from a nit-picky gamer. Once I got the pieces fixed and the box organized, I absolutely adore it.
Response: Thank you so much for the feedback and we appreciate your business. Most likely the loose part was just missed in error, the rest of your case should be fine. If you do have any other issues, don't hesitate to contact us. We appreciate the suggestion for layout instructions and it is something we are definitely considering how to implement for all products.
A true work of art!
by Rhiannon King
Ever since getting the game I have wanted something special to store all it's pieces properly and, like most, have complained about not having a big enough table to be able to comfortably lay everything out.
The crate is the perfect answer and a true work of art. It's clear that it has been well thought through and lovingly put together and finished. It feels like more than just a storage box, it IS part of the game!
I ordered on Christmas day and it made it's way to me in the UK with amazing speed (only being held up at customs by my lot :p ).
The fact that I can play with most of it still inside the box means I no longer have my sons pudgy little hands grasping at the cards claiming they're his and running away with my discard deck!
Oh and did I mention the smell? Fresh varnished wood has made my dining room smell amazing!
The only downside is that the space saved by fitting all the expansions and the vinyl 'verse map into one box has meant more room in my games cupboard so now I have to go and fill it up!
Thank you for the time and effort taken over this, definitely using Broken Token again.
RESPONSE: This totally made my day. And we do apologize for clearing up the extra space in your cupboard, it is a side effect that we forget to warn people about :D Aim To Misbehave and Game On My Friend - Aminda- CS Meeple!
Does everything well!
by Nathan B.
Completely satisfied owner here. I was a bit hesitant at the price tag, but now I have no regrets. Staff was knowledgeable and helpful, helped pick out the correct card protectors so that everything fit perfect. I did not have the problem of other reviewers below having to use the discard trays. Thickness adds up for 900 cards, so get the right ones! Of course it took a while to sleeve that many cards myself, so I'm glad I went with the MFE... it was well worth the time I saved on assembly/staining/lacquering (plus knowing me, I would have broken something). I was worried the full crate might be a bit heavy but the choice of wood is the perfect balance between durable and lightweight (just don't go dropping it onto stone floors). Does not have room for the Vera map, but the Whole Damn Verse map AND the orig boards fit, so do you really need a third separate complete map? The Big Money pouch will only fit if you opt to ditch the original game boards, otherwise, leave that one out also. Has enough room for original ship pieces and ONE of the aftermarket resin ship series (not both unless you ditch the original cheapy models). Bottom line, it fits everything you NEED to play the complete game, it's not an oversized junk box you can also stuff your fan-fiction into. The huge table space this game takes has really been the only thing keeping me from playing it, so this investment so I can actually make use of the game at all is definitely worthwhile. The 3 standing card slots for the active Wanted cards are an excellent touch. Too late for me, but I'm hoping future editions incorporate one more such standing slot for the Crime and Punishment expansion's active Alert card. With the Crime and Punishment expansion, there isn't room for a discard slot on the Aim to Misbehave cards, but it's no big deal, just put them on the bottom until you draw a "reshuffle" anyway. That and a "removed from game" separate discard slot are the only things "missing"... but really that's splitting hairs. The token trays have the token types etched onto the lids, and everything fits, though some you do have to stack more carefully than others. I'm actually glad they didn't put permanent labels on the deck slots, as people will want to organize them differently... geographically top to bottom, or left to right, or alphabetically, or contacts and shops both in one alphabetical list, etc. Find a system that makes the organizer play efficiently for you! Overall they did an excellent job making a top quality organizer for a really complicated and prolific gameset. Picked mine up wrapped with care so that it made it home without a scratch. They do make it available for pickup as soon as it's "ready", which is great customer service if you're in a hurry, but I'd recommend letting it set out a few extra days before filling it, unless you really enjoy the smell of glue and varnish!
