Worth the effort

Unlike my previous Broken Token organizer for Dead of Winter, there is a bit going on with this Cosmic encounter one. For starters, when they mention having glue, they mean it. I purchased glue with the order and found the youtube video of how and where to apply it to work perfectly for me. If you have used the Broken Token organizers before, then aside from the little ship token trays, you will have this one assembled in no time with great instructions and decent construction quality. Highly recommend this, but make sure you add some expansions, or your box will look a little empty!

The best cosmic expansion

The headline is a slight exaggeration, but I wouldn't recommend buying more than one or two expansions if you're not going to get this insert. <br><br><br><br>There's little to add beyond the pictures. Everything fits. Going by pictures on BGG it seems that you *can* get all six expansions into the box. I don't have Eons, but the first five fit perfectly. <br><br><br><br>This is the most challenging insert I've put together, but I wouldn't say it's hard. The most difficult part are the trays that hold the ships. I ended inserting the separators one at a time into both edge pieces, working them back and forth a bit to get the last few in, rather than putting all into one edge and trying to line the second edge up as the printed instructions indicate.


I purchased this as a Christmas present for a friend and he was elated!<br><br>It was very easy to put together, though I recommend using wood glue if you have it, and a small rubber mallet or something with a blunt end to gently lock the pieces in.<br><br><br><br>We played Cosmic Encounter with his new organizer and it made setup and tear down a breeze. Couldn't recommend enough!

Good fit and excellent product.

Some of the pieces have a very small splintering issue when breaking free of the sprues. The appear laser cut by the occasional flare up scorching on some of the corners where I imagine the speed slowed slightly. In most cases this is a light discoloration and was on the scrap portion.<br><br><br><br>They fit together snugly, and feel solid when assembled. I applied a very small amount of wood glue to end pieces, but am confident in the interlocking nature to hold strong even without most likely. I only glued the capping pieces for this reason. It does all fit in the box perfectly, though I don't quite have every expansion yet.<br><br><br><br>I'd recommend this for Cosmic Encounters and any game like it that does not have its own organizational structure. I look forward to purchasing the Zombicide product and replacing my current Chinese food containers. Even Scythe, which was well designed and self-organizing, looks spectacular with these additions.

Neat and Tidy

The Short Version is this organizer replaced something like 15-20 plastic baggies and has made my game look much nicer. <br><br><br><br>The Longer version is the kit came cut neat and clean. There were a few loose connections on some of the joints, but glue straightened that out, as recommended in the assembly instructions. I found this kit to be more modular then my previous experiences, rather than a solid frame on the edges, with compartments, this is more of a collection of trays and holders that pack together neatly when put up in the box. This *is* depicted in the pictures, but it did mean that assembly took a bit longer than I originally expected, but I enjoy crafts so this was in no way a down side.<br><br><br><br>The one hiccup I did find that one of my planetary discs was a bit puffier than the rest (previous exposure to moisture or a manufacturing irregularity are my only guesses), which prevented me from using most of the snug planetary slots for that specific color. Thankfully it still fit just fine in front slot where there is not front piece. Obviously this is not a problem with the kit, but if you have couple of discs that have encountered a few spills and a bit swollen, you might find it difficult to fit all of the planets in.

Another great organizer with a few 'slight' issues

Overall this is another great organizer that is a perfect addition to the game, especially if you own most of the expansions and need/want a cleaner and neater way to sort everything. The presentation of the set once put together is amazing when on the table; I like that it is a set of various trays that can be removed as needed. <br><br><br><br>However there are a few minor issues for me:<br><br>The ship tokens, as mentioned before, are very fiddly to build. In fact this was the first organizer from Broken Token that ever really caused me any frustration while putting together. The design is easy to follow and once you get them together they work great, but while building them you'll need a little patience. Once together and the glue dries they are rock solid and look awesome, so that issue went away for- just something worth noting.<br><br>My other issue is that it states it hold sleeved cards for all of the expansions. I have all but on expansion and, unless they are very few cards in that last set (I know I'm missing 25 alien cards) I can't imagine them all fitting in the box unless you remove the wooden dividers. I have already had to remove one to get all the cards I have to fit. Maybe this was the intention. The card box is still very good and extremely; I just would hate having to pull out more of the dividers. And a final note: I also have sleeved alien cards; I'm sure they didn't refer to those being sleeved (as that is rare) but I did get them to all fit, but I had to modify that tray by leaving off one of the sides. I could easily remove them from the sleeves but it still functions well and only has a few alien cards that are above the tray intended for them; to me that's the best of both worlds.

Another excellent product

I own several Broken Token organizers. In fact, they are the only brand that I purchase. If I am not inspired to create my own, which I have done several times, I turn to Broken Token.<br><br><br><br>The only caveat I would ever mention is that the weight of the box will increase, versus a foam insert. However, as my games don't travel I don't consider it an issue.<br><br><br><br>Other reviews of this product complain about needing to glue a couple of trays. I usually glue many of the components anyway (hey, I'm a gamer, I have OCD) so this was no different. I always use a professional-grade wood glue and never have any problems.<br><br><br><br>One review states they had to trim parts. That doesn't really make sense as all the sheets are laser cut so there should be no variations. Mine went together with the usual ease and needed no trimming. Go figure.<br><br><br><br>As always, as someone who has a tinkerer's mind, I'm impressed with the design work that went into the finished product. Clever and utilitarian, this organizer is yet another impressive example of what this company is capable of.<br><br><br><br>With any luck the next organizer they produce will be for another game I have. Here's hoping!

A must have if you play a lot of Cosmic

Great insert! As other reviews have pointed out the trays that hold the spaceships is a bear to put together and will require a lot of patients and glue (I used Goop). It was worth the effort once every thing was organized in the box.

Very good storage solution!

This Cosmic Encounter insert works very well and holds everything currently out for CE very well. Though if you sleeve everything, your alien cards will probably not fit very well as they are at capacity as is. It was very easy and fairly quick to put together however the quality is a little below what I had expected. I have purchased other inserts elsewhere and the wood was a little thicker/sturdier which was nice although they were a bit pricier. So it really depends what you want out of your insert. As something to hold everything in one box, this works very nicely!<br><br><br><br>Response: Keep in mind that thicker does not equal sturdier. Often times MDF is thicker and mistaken as stronger due to this, but its in fact the opposite. Birch is the strongest/lightest wood you can get at this thickness. MDF will break more easily and thinner wood actually allows for more flexibility in design. Inserts from other companies are either the same wood, or MDF. In addition, if any of your pieces were to break, we would replace it for free.

a great organizer for a great game

Cosmic Encounter is one of my favorite games, so I was thrilled to see the Broken Token come up with an organizer for it. Previously, I used way too many ziplock bags to keep all the pieces of the game organized in the box, had to meticulously squeeze all the extra air out of each one, force them to lie as flat as possible, and still had an "overflow box" for a few components that I just could not get to fit. I was impressed to find that it is indeed possible to fit all of the expansions in the box for the base game. <br><br><br><br>There are just 2 things that stood in the way of this organizer getting a 5-star review. The first was the process of assembling the trays for the spaceships. This required a lot of wood glue and even more patience, and became very frustrating to me at one point. In all fairness, this may have been due in part to the fact that I waited until it was late and I was tired to start assembling the organizer, but with a 3-year-old who doesn't like to go to bed at a normal time, doing things late and while tired is the only way they ever get done around here. The other issue is that I wish there were more dividers for the cards, as I like to separate the red, yellow, and green flare cards, the large group cards, and the player colors in the Destiny deck. As it is, I had to make some tough choices about what I could separate and what had to be mixed together. After much deliberation, I opted to mix the large group cards in with the rest of the deck, and throw all the Destiny cards in one divider together. Since I don't sleeve my cards, there would be plenty of room for the extra dividers, and they would make the organizer perfect for my poor little OCD brain. Perhaps an additional set of dividers could be offered as an add-on in the future?
