SPLINTER WARNING! Harder to assemble, overpriced...but works.
by Michael Lamson
I'm a rookie to Broken Token, and was reluctant to purchase one of these even though I was interested. It was hard to assemble the dice trays; the tabs frayed and tons of splinter opportunities came. You do need a rubber mallet hammer (I used a small metal one which worked fine...just be gentle) to secure the pieces. It took me about an hour to assemble the whole thing. It does make some good room space (probably for an expansion too), but to pay 3/4 of the price for the game for an organizer, which seems to be BT's M.O., seems a little outlandish to me (I paid the same price as the game to have Priority shipping).
I really like the idea of organizers, but I can't justify paying that much EVERY time I want one. I might have paid $20 for this, but would have to think about it. I did it this time to give it a shot. It does its job, it makes setup and cleanup faster, but the $30 price tag, the difficult assembly, the splinters I received, just makes this is a "meh" purchase.
Unless this flimsy wood costs and arm and a leg, I can't see how any of these prices are worth it. Thanks for trying though.
Response: We're sorry you aren't 100% pleased with the organizer. To respond to your comment about the wood being flimsy, we can assure you that it is very strong and lightweight. People sometimes mistake the weight to mean that it is not sturdy, but this is not the case. We use a high quality 3mm plywood that must be imported from outside of the country. We stand behind the quality of the product and will replace any parts if they were to break. Regarding splinters, sometimes "hairs" can separate from the edges because the wood is made of natural fibers. They shouldn't be strong enough to penetrate skin, but we still recommend that you assemble with care.
As with all their dividers, this one is amazing as well. The one that comes with the game is very disorganized and this makes it so much nicer looking. I love the attention to detail with the sloped tray edges to easily remove dice as well as the cutouts on the top edge to fit the player boards and curtains. Highly recommended if you have Roll for the Galaxy.

I'm satisfied with the product for the most part the containers for the dices were the most pain to put together and it even seemed to not fit at one point. I'm not sure if it was really fit for the expansion as well.
Before this, I had a plastic organizer to sort all the dice and I thought that worked relatively well. I got this because it made it easier to keep the expansion (and hopefully future expansions) separate from the base game depending on how I wanted to play.
I think it looks great but I think the dice and token trays need something on top to keep everything in place. That's the only thing I'd change, but I still love the insert!
Great insert, fits Ambition too
by Jacob Black
I bought this insert just as Ambition was released. The original insert was not terrible but a bit of a component soup. I knew I'd have trouble parsing out the Red and Orange dice if they were all stored in the same bag so I picked up this insert. This is fantastic! You can quickly get everything out of the box and ready to go assuming everyone know how to play you can be good to go in under 5 minutes.
Great, but could be better
by Joseph M Doubek
So far I have assembled 2 Broken Token inserts, Gloomhaven and this one. Ive also put together some other brands. My observation with this one is that it was rather difficult to assemble, even though it is relatively simple. It was a combination of long sides with no bottom makes it somewhat floppy while trying to get tight corners, and hitting it with a mallet during assembly came with little success to get all of the corners tight. Some tabs were so tight they delaminated the wood when inserting them. Sanding all of the adjoining pieces would have resolved this, but that is a pain. I actually think the Gloomhaven insert was easier to assemble, even though it is about 10x more complicated. I actually like the looser fit of other brands since it is recommended to use glue anyway. Looser fit is much easier to assemble. Now that it's finished, however, I do like it very much. All of the compartments are very clearly designated and hold all the bits. It will definitely speed up setup and break down.

This organizer is very nice. I especially love the dice trays. I normally put these together, but my wife did this time, and she appreciated how easy it was.
A Very Well Designed Organizer
by Jerry Reece
This is a particularly well-designed organizer that also fits the Ambition expansion. But rather than being required to intermingle the components from the expansions, the organizer has enough room to allow for Ambition components to be stored separately. I'm a big fan of Broken Token products, but I think this is my favorite organizer to date.
Another fantastic insert aside from a minor annoyance with one of the trays I assembled. One of the trays that came in my kit sits crooked while the other sits flat on the table. Perhaps the wood came warped or something, but it's still fully functional and fits in the game box, so I'm not too bothered by it.
I may try to put something heavy on it to see if i can't get it to sit flat like its brother. I'm positive the issue is isolated to my kit, and not indicative of how others will be. I'm always happy to recommend these inserts and will be looking forward to putting together the next one. The insert has room for expansions it seems, which is nice!
Easy five stars if it hadn't been for my troublesome tray.
Excellent insert, really helps with setup!! :)
by Angela Martin
The insert is easy to assemble, and fits inside of the box easily. It has room for the first expansion (and probably another one too) as well as the base game. Everything has its place and the insert is designed so that it is easy to get things in and out (finger grooves, that sort of thing) so great for easy and quick access as you are playing the game. The customer service (ease to order and receive my order) was excellent and I would highly recommend purchasing this insert from broken token! :)
Having previously bought my first BT insert for Lords of Waterdeep, I knew the quality and build of this insert would not disappoint. I was able to assemble this with just my fingers, no tape and no glue. Even out of the box, it doesn't feel like its going to become detached, but the only section I'm ever likely to pull out is the upper dice compartment. A little tip for anyone who bought this and the Ambition expansion: Put the dice cups into the same compartment as the bag in the photo. Use the empty narrow compartment (where the cups were) for the base game tiles. I keep the VP chips in one of the provided ziplock bags, rolled up, next to the base tiles to prevent them from sliding, and the Talent counters in another bag, in front of the tiles, to keep them upright.
a much needed insert
by Blake H
If you a roll fan, this insert is a savior. It organizes the dice and compents for quick setup. It also is designed with expansions in mind and it looks like there's room for plenty more! A must buy if you love the game. I can't recommend these inserts enough. Crossing fingers for a five tribes insert.
Very nice, had some assembly trouble
by Scott Everts
I'm very impressed with the insert, does exactly what I wanted.
Assembling the main piece went well. I glued mine for extra stability.
The removable trays on the other hand were difficult to assemble. The first one took me quite a bit of time and is slightly off angle but still fits in the box. The second one went together much easier once I knew how to put it together and sits perfectly flat.
Very good but not flawless
The instructions were simple to follow and the pieces were all cut well. The only downside was the pieces didn't fit as snug as previous kits so putting together the outer part of the box was tricky and somewhat frustrating.
Much needed organizer
by Jeffery Isom
Having recently fell in love with Roll,no was happy to discover this organizer which makes my life so much easier. My only small complaints probably wouldn't have registered if not for my superb experience with othe Broken Token organizers. The removable trays didn't seem to fit together as snugly as other kits I've gotten, so I was a little disappointed to have to tape/glue them. I have also been having slivers peel off a few of the edges which hasn't happened with any of my other products from Broken Token. Overall, extremely happy with another great Broken Token design.
These kits are the bee's knees. I have gotten two of these so far and plan to get more. What a great idea! I wish I had these for all my games.
This is an amazing organizer and I highly recommend it. The design of the smaller token boxes are simply genius! A++++
Mistake in the instructions, otherwise great!
First the mistake: part S "tongue" in drawing 1,2,3 should point to the right. You will find out right away in step 2 if you are pointing the right way. One more thing, do not attempt to build the token trays without a rubber mallet! Buy one at your local hardware store if don't already have one. You will need it for the other Broken Token inserts anyway. Great Organizer, it has space for future expansions!
