Seventeen removable trays make set-up and tear down a breeze. A large tray holds all the 2-sided map tiles with an etched stacking order to help find the right tiles and pack back up. 4 identical trays hold the party’s active character’s ability cards, attack modifier cards, collected item cards, character tokens, character pad, character board and hp/xp dials and trackers, as well as a spot for the character standee for first edition copies of the game. The miniatures tray holds all the character miniature boxes with cutouts making it easy to remove the right one. 2 identical trays hold the 2-sided overlay tiles with a third smaller tray for the trap overlay tiles. 1 mini-card tray holds the 4 base attack modifier decks, blessing cards, curse cards, negative modifiers, battle goal cards, random scenario cards, and all item cards with enough dividers to separate all the cards by type and items by prosperity level. The standard card tray holds road and city events; separated by available, locked and used events; personal quest cards, and both types of random dungeon cards. The standard card tray also has a “secret compartment” under the cards for the Town Records Book and sealed envelopes. There are 3 “combat” trays, one holds all the status tokens (the 2nd edition redesign rendered the blessing and curse tokens obsolete so the tray was redesigned to hold the 8 rather than 10 tokens), one holds damage tokens, money tokens, xp tokens/scenario aid tokens, and element discs and round tracker for set-up, the third tray holds the summons and their trackers and number tokens. Finally there are 3 monster trays, one for plastic stands, another for the monster stat sheets and sleeves, the third holds 30 custom full color tuck-boxes that store the monster attack modifier cards and each monster type’s standees and ability cards together.
There’s a lot of world to explore and a lot of money to be made, get to adventuring faster with help from The Broken Token!

Excellent accessory. A must-have!
The organizer is very good for storing all the hundred pieces and cards of the game. It is also good quality, the parts fit perfectly although some glue is recommended to make it sturdier. The video explaining how each tray works is also clear and easy to understand. This organizer helps me save a lot of time both preparing the game or putting it away. Would recommend for other Gloomhaven players. You may say it is pricy, but considering the scale and complexity of the game, or comparing to other board game sets that include many expansions, the Gloomhaven base game and the organizer combined don’t cost much more.
Inventive, and practically necessary.
by Ian McNear
Is this a perfect insert? Not quite, but it does easily deserve 5 stars for inventiveness and helpfulness.
I wont go into each specific detail of the insert. You can see the videos yourself for that, but here are some of the standouts things for me.
The character holders are perfect. Because its my wife and I. We prefer to keep the modified standard attack modifier decks with our characters, and the boards are high enough to store it. We have second edition, so with the character minis and we found we could also comfortably store that miniature in the slot for the cardboard one. So we currently only have to hand out the character trays to have everything ready to go.
The enemy tuckboxes, while still a little frustrating to put enemies back into. Are the best way to store the enemies I've seen. And being able to store them alphabetically makes it super simple to get what you need and go.
As per normal high quality, the Broken Token trays for bits and tiles make everything easy to get too.
The card holders in particular are easy to change up the dividers and allow for easy management of the cards.
My setup time went from 30ish minutes to about 10. Tear down was a similar improvement.
If you are running a 2 player game, you wont be able to fit all the character boxes into the box. We had to pull out one of the base characters we weren't playing and put his stuff into one of the trays.
Those empty character boxes have to be either thrown on top or stored separately
The top board try can be finicky to get the last set of boards to fit. But it has helped me to start to memorize what each piece is, so setup is getting much faster.
As you can see, the cons I highlighted are a little annoying but for a massive game like this. To have everything in the box, and time saved. It makes this insert a must for me, allows you to get to the game that much faster, and enjoy it all the more!
Thank you very much for this excellent insert! Great (really precise) production quality, everything fits really well and is thought out well, good assembly with great (video) instructions. Very speedy shipping to Europe. I absolutely recommend this insert.
by Paul Hoebing
This went together quite well and did not require any modification to get pieces together. I only needed glue on a couple of pieces. It was also nice to have a you tube video on how to fit it int the box. Great job.
Wonderful, wouldn't play without this insert
by JR Honeycutt
Took a couple hours to put together, then saved at least that much time in setup and takedown over the first few games we played. Soothes my obsession with keeping components organized while I play, and really let me focus on running the game.
wonderful time saver
by Heather Madrone
It took me 4 hours to put together the first 5 (out of 17) trays. I was carefully sanding the tabs so everything fit perfectly and then gluing everything together just like it showed in the instructions.
I told a friend what I was doing and she told me she just whacked hers together with a rubber mallet. No sanding, no glue.
The next 12 trays went much faster, with much gleeful whacking, a lot less sanding, and no glue. Still took me 4 days to get all the trays together and the game parts organized. (Also got a game bonus as a result, but NO SPOILERS!) I was so proud of myself!
It's all very clever, fits elegantly in the box, and greatly simplifies game set-up and teardown. As a bonus, it smells lovely. I especially love the long tray for the tiny character effect tiles and the trap box. Everything's a bit of a tight fit, but that's necessary to get it all in the box. The general organization scheme mostly enables you to extract things in the order you're going to use them and put them back in teardown order.
There are a lot of things that could be improved. The dividers in the small card tray shift out of their slots. In general, the card trays are my least favorite part of the system. It's easy to get confused about where the active item/event cards are and where the reserves are. It's not tragic to draw a road event that you're not supposed to see for months, but it's not ideal. I'll probably find some way to mark the slots so we can avoid this.
Compartments aren't always the right size for what's supposed to fit in them. The overlay tile compartments don't track the overlay tile sets, so you need to split some of them up and store them with unlike tiles. After I'd put everything else away according to the video, the coins were sitting on the table, unhoused. Not sure if that was my mistake or the video's, but I had to double up some other components to make room for them.
Hats off to the Broken Token folks, though. Gloomhaven is a monster of a game, and it's amazing that it can all fit back in the box.
If you love the game, you’ll want this.
If you love the game you’ll want this as it streamlines set up and tear down and that means squeezing in more games. I like the tuck boxes except for three which are over filled and inefficient.
The quality is top notch. I stained my with a quick thin coat of black stain and a spray varnish and it looks elite. I’m not sure how they fit all the pieces together on the sheet as not an inch is wasted. Is it a human spatial genius at Broken Token or is it some kind of advanced ai that’s being utilized to create board game organizers? We may never know..
Spend your time playing, not futzing
by Andrew E
Makes setup and tear down so much simpler. And I swear, my tinkerer is burning through the flame demons so much more quickly now. Don't know if that's related to the organizer or not.
Gloomhaven due to it's size and the number of components pretty much requires an organizer and this one is the best out there. It manages to not only store everything neatly, it greatly speeds up setup and break down. The tuck boxes and the player trays are what really makes this stand out from the rest. The only flaw is there is only enough room for 2 player trays if the all of the class boxes are put away, and to fit all four trays, the respective classes picked have to have their boxes folded down. It works perfectly fine once you actually have a game going, but if you are getting things ready for your group, there physically won't be room to hold everything in the box. This is more of a limit of just how much stuff there is Gloomhaven, than a design failing on the part of the Broken Token. It's a small thing, and the benefit of this organizer far exceeds the troubles of not being able to fit everything until play actually starts.
All in all, much like the other reviewers said.
Everything fits except
by Paul M. Dickey
Great product. Everything fits except the character standees, you cannot fit all of them in the tuck boxes and I'm forced to use another storage solution for them.
RESPONSE: Those are stored in the class tuck boxes that came with the game or in our character trays.
This organizer is great, very well thought out with room for everything. The only drawback is assembly, but that was a fun project leading up to the game as well.
Such a time saver
We actually play Gloomhaven much more frequently now that it's so easy to set up and tear down. We're a lot more likely to leave it out between sessions as well, even with the cats. There are a couple small issues. It's obviously made for the first version, before there were proper player miniatures and heath/XP dials. But totally worth it.
by Kieth Wakelee
Great Job on this one guys. Went together well and defiantly makes keeping this monster organized a simpler task.

Stay sane and just get this already!
Honestly, I can't imagine not having this organizer. The ability to hold tokens during play in specific areas and have your monsters organized is the absolute biggest reason to have this. Storing is simple as well and everything fits perfectly. I am so glad I made the decision to purchase this.
Functional and elegant
My friends were kind enough to get a copy of Gloomhaven for my birthday. After spending so much time tearing it apart, I had all the pieces (more or less?) organized, covering an entire second table. I decided to see if there were any organizers out there, and POOF! Broken Token.
So, I got the box in the mail, set aside a few hours and got to work. I decided to take the long route (deburring edges and glue on every surface) and so it took me a casual 2.5-3 hours to put together, and an overnight wait for the glue to set. The build quality is strong, and while beautiful, this is built like a brick house.
Functionality wise, it's really easy to get everything together in the original box and remember where all of the different boxes go after the first time or two. It makes a lot of sense. The biggest change is the one it made at the game table. Holy. Moly. When we did the first mission, it probably took me an hour to find everything and get it all set up. Looking for things in the Organizer streamlined the process immensely!
The only thing you could ask for is a bit more detail of what goes into which slots, but it's fairly easy if you have a good resolution scan of the front of the booklet. Hint: Some of the hex sized pieces of the game have similar backings. Also, it took me a minute to figure out that the tuck boxes also hold the minis. (and make all monster minis and cards 100% easier to find)
Overall a fantastic product that will probably outlast my entire gaming group and make sure NO harm comes to the game it contains. Bravo.
Great, but takes forever to put together
It took about 5 hours of sanding and gluing to get together, and it's pretty expensive, but it will save me tons of time on the backend. Looks great!
by Brian Gregory
I like the product and it does organize everything. However, you have to remove 4 of the character boxes to get it to fit. If you have a four player game that is great as everything goes into the character trays. If not.....
Excellent must have organizer
by Corey Sanders
If you have gloomhaven, you need this kit. It's that simple. Beautiful design, easy to put together, and overall an amazing product.
Simple assembly, durable materials, and fantastic organization. It not only helps with setup and tare down and it is great during game play.
I love this organizer!!!
by Rob Solomon
I spent about half of the day putting this organizer together. Super fun project if you like that sort of thing. The instructions were well laid out and incredibly easy to understand. I didn't end up staining the product, and it still looks great. More importantly, everything is very organized and fits perfectly in the Gloomhaven box. I will definitely be purchasing from The Broken Token in the future!!! Thanks for making this product and others like it.
Super helpful but a lot to put together
by George Corple
Everything is well marked and for the most part for together very snug. Some pieces were lose though and needed more glue
This should be included in the game!!
by Sean Lange
The game has so many pieces and tokens it is impossible to organize without a planned system. This organizer is so well thought out. The tolerances of the pieces are so tight that many of them don't need to be glued. I can't even imagine playing gloomhaven without this.
by Tom E.
Wow! Gloomhaven is a giant box full of stuff and more stuff. Broken Token's organizer really helps keep everything in place and ready to use. Adding this organizer has sped up setup time so our time is spent playing instead of wasting time finding the tokens we need to use. The monster boxes alone are worth getting to collect the monster ability cards and token together. The reason I did not give 5 stars was 4 character boxes need to be collapsed in order to fit everything, and the organizer is just a hair taller then the box and the lid does not set all the way down, but it really does not impact the quality of the storage. This is my second broken token game organizer, and I plan on getting more. Keep up the good work.
Absolutely fantastic organizer. Assembly took me about 5-6 hours, which seems longer than others took, although I did glue Every. Single. Join. But the final result is very sturdy!! The printed instructions that came with kit left a bit to be desired - I could figure out most of it, with just a few remaining questions ("How can I fit all these bosses in this box? What am I supposed to do with this dragon?"), all of which were answered by the video (which has very peppy music!). Everything is now so easy to get to and use it makes setup take so much less time. Minus 1/8 star because the box doesn't quite close all the way, but it's a small price to pay.
