Great for Arkham Horror LCG
Got a few expansions and decided I wanted a box to keep everything. Bought the case from Hobby Lobby and ordered this organizer. Delivery was quick enough, within the promised window. The organizer comes in a few punch-out sheets, which are very easy to take out and put together. The whole thing took about 15 minutes. I took out everything inside the box, slid this organizer in, and it fits all my cards very well. They can stand up straight and the lid still closes. I only have about 3 expansions now, but even if I were to buy every expansion for the game, this organizer and case set would be sufficient. Great purchase. If I get another LCG, I will probably buy another one.
Excellent storage solution
This has really cleaned up my shelves and freed up a ton of room.
The only problem i really had was getting the case, hobby lobby took forever to actually send the thing, because i couldn't be asked to buy it in person.
Because i'm using it for arkham horror it is sort of annoying that it has a hard time fitting the narrative papers in there, on top, but they do fit
Perfect for Marvel Legendary
I bought this because my Marvel Legendary game has way outgrown the original box and that Broken Token with all of the expansions (I don't have Fantastic Four.) This is perfect. I haven't finished putting them all in, but I think I'll be able to fit most of them. I have mine sleeved with Ultra Pro sleeves that are on the thick side. So, I don't think they will ALL fit, but most will. Still, if they were unsleeved or penny sleeves, I think they'd all fit.
Perfect Solution for an LCG
As usual, a Broken Token product lives up to my very lofty expectations. Easy to put together and fits well inside the darker artists box if you put in some cardboard or other spacer. Holds a ton of cards with space to allow you to sorts the cards as you wish.
by Jacob Spadt
I think this is fantastic, my only complain is some of the slots are a smidge too tight making re configuring a small challenge
My biggest complaint about this product is that I have to give money to Hobby Lobby to buy a box that fits this. It works wonderfully for organizing my collection of MTG cards.
by Eddie Serna
Exactly as described. This insert, along with the mentioned box, is perfect for ANY MTG card sized game. Easily holds 2500 premium sleeved cards.
Excellent product buy it now.
I was worried at first about a product I had never heard of. I just came across it on the internet. The site had instructions on what to buy and how to use it. I wanted to make my son something cool for my son for Christmas. I found this to be the perfect gift. It was cut perfect and fit just perfect. Another review said it smelled of burnt wood but I didn't think so. It smells of cut wood and came apart very easy and installed just as easy. I am very pleased with my purchase and the way it turned out.
Would be 5 stars, but...
This is a great and easy to assemble solution for a LCG, but the dividers are, sadly, a large weak point with the product. They'll often slip out, are too loose to remain seated, or even are too short to span the length of some of the rows (there is naturally some flex with the wood within the inner rows, which can lead to the dividers not spanning all the way across and coming up a few millimeters short of seating fully within the slots). I have loose dividers everywhere and it drives me insane.
An easy fix is just to add a bit of tape/padding to the sides of the dividers and it makes them fit a little bit more snuggly within the slots. It's not particularly elegant, but it IS functional. I'm thinking of maybe getting some 3D printed and seeing how they work as a replacement.
I'm still giving this product 4 stars despite the divider issue, because it really is the best solution for storing, sorting, and transporting a large and still growing LCG. It's also an easy fix with tape/padding, and still looks much better than a standard cardboard collectors box solution. Also, once everything is properly seated, the design itself is great and keeps all your cards very secure. I have flipped my box upside down twice by accident and all my cards have stayed in place sans any shifting around. No loose cards anywhere! Whew!
I'd buy it again and do recommend, provided you are okay with some small mods to seat the dividers correctly.
RESPONSE: this sounds like you have our old dividers. If you contact me via the website I can get you set up with the redesign that won't have this issue!
The Way to Go
I love this Broken Token organizer for my artist case from Hobby Lobby. The wood quality is great, and the fit is absolutely perfect. Snug enough not to move or rattle, but no so tight as to be difficult to insert i the case. And Broken Token customer service was 11 out of 10!
Great quality and value
This is a very sturdy insert, assembled it in about 10 minutes, with no instructions. The art case could use better latches, a seperate item but also an easy modification. All in all this is a great quality and I'm very happy.
by Scott Everts
I bought mine to hold the cards for "Shadows of Brimstone" which eventually will have an enormous number of cards once all the expansions come out. After reading about people having trouble with flexing center dividers, I decided to glue the whole thing into the case. I bought my case from Hobby Lobby and removed all the inside pieces. You need a screwdriver to remove the top parts. Then used Gorilla Wood Glue to glue it together. Before it dried I ran glue along the entire bottom and pushed it in. Then used the dividers to keep the center dividers straight while it dried. And now everything is really solid and nothing shifts at all. All dividers seem to stay firm in their slots.
Exactly What I Wanted
I got these dividers with some hesitation due to mixed reviews; but I have to say, I don't know what the complaints are about.
Removing the pieces from the sheets was the most difficult part, I would highly recommend you use a X-ACTO knife or razor to cut the pieces free. Twisting them out may cause issues. Assembly was a breeze, be sure to follow the instructions and use tape on the outside corners and edges. I used painters tape and it worked well - the whole set fit very snugly in the box, no wiggle room whatsoever. The dividers fit very tightly, and each row can hold Ultra Pro Flip Boxes and Clear Card boxes if rotated.
I would also recommend buying the cases at Hobby Lobby, they frequently have 40% off coupons for a single item. You can get the case for about $16. I bought the Black All Media Artist's Supply Sketch Box (#1301050) and I didn't need a cardboard divider - I wasn't sure what that was referring to.
Super pleased with the dividers. I'll be ordering my second set today.
RESPONSE: Thanks for the awesome review and the great feedback!
by Tyler Hess
Everything fits together like a glove, and the burnt edges from the cutting device make for a very nice look. I'm incredibly happy with the product.
Great Organizer for Cards
We bought this for our Firefly cards and, with a little tweaking, it is exactly what we needed. We ended up making additional spacers out of cardboard to make enough spaces to allow for each deck of cards to have its own draw and discard pile in the organizer for easier game play.
Otherwise it exactly what we were looking for.
Note: It is VERY hard to get the initial frame into the Hobby Lobby box. It fits, but you have to bang it (while holding your breath that you don't break it.)
Great idea, flawed execution.
by Wayne Hansen
I needed a storage solution for several LCGs, and heard great things about the Broken Token insert. After reading some reviews and looking at pictures, I was ecstatic. This is exactly what I needed! I quickly ordered one and eagerly awaited it's arrival. When it showed up I was ready to assemble it and get it in my artist case.
Unfortunately for me, the reality took over. Let me be clear, it seems like it would be a good product, and assembly should be easy. There are instructions but really they aren't needed. But here's where the execution ruins it. These are laser cut, which is OK. Unfortunately they leave way too much wood attached after the laser cut. I get it, you want them to stay together inside the piece of wood. Much like cardboard counters or chits. However those are easy to pop out because they are, hello, cardboard. Wood is a different story. No matter how I attempted to remove them, I damaged several pieces of the insert. I'm not a stranger to either die cut or laser cut pieces! I play wargames and traditional board games with plenty of pieces.
A box cutter took care of the hanging wood pieces, unfortunately that did nothing to repair the damaged pieces that had layers torn off them as they were removed. This made the final product harder to assemble, and not as nice looking as I would have liked. I just hope it doesn't damage any of the cards I place in there.
If you're buying this insert, just be aware you will have to baby it to get the pieces out undamaged. And for me, that still wasn't enough. Disappointed is all I can say.
RESPONSE: I am so sorry to hear about your bad experience. If you e-mail our customer service department regarding this unfortunate mishap, we should be able to send you replacement sheets for the damaged pieces. There are videos online regrding removing the pieces from the slabs that should be helpful in preventing a repeat of this incident. The professionals in that department will be returning to the office next Monday.
Assembly was very straightforward; product looks nice and seems structurally robust. Since I am using it in a HL box, I left the tape in place on the outside corners for additional stability.
Only recommendation: possibly more frequent slots for dividers allowing for "finer tuning" in separating card groups.
Great Product & Easy Assembly
by Nathan Ballard
I purchased this organizer for my collection of Arkham Horror: The Card Game. The assembly was easy and fit perfectly. There really isn't much to review on this product. It's simple, effective and leaves me plenty of room to store a box of tokens and the chaos token bag.
RESPONSE: Or as we like to say BAM - Done :D
Not what I expected but not bad quality.
I was hoping that I could use this as a brief case for all of the cards that I carry around on a regular basis. When I finally assembled it I knew it wouldn't work as hoped. There was a significant gap between the top of the cards and the top of the case. I tested it with a bunch of commons I keep around and they tumbled around and became disorganized. I'm thinking it could work as a card brief case if you buy the organizer with the 4 slots where the cards can lay on their side and then purchase some foam to fit in the top of the box.
RESPONSE: I'm a little concerned, this should not actually happen if you have the right size cards in there? We may have some suggestions or be able to help you better utilize the kit, just email Aminda - firstname.lastname@example.org
by Crystal Shepard
I got this to hold all of the cards from my smaller games where the cards wouldn't fit in the box when sleeved, like the Oniverse games, or Star Realms. It looked great, because it had dividers that could be placed where you want to fit the amount of cards you had.
Looked being the operative word. The dividers didn't, wouldn't, couldn't stay in place. I finally got them to stay in place by gluing them there. Maybe Broken Token would have taken their organizer back if I complained, but I had already bought the box for it.
Anyhow, so much for the dividers that could be placed wherever you want.
Between the artist box and the organizer with shipping, I'm out $50 for a storage solution that's actually *less* flexible than 50 cent cardboard card boxes.
RESPONSE: I am so sorry you had this experience. This is not at all how you should be experiencing this organizer. Please message our customer service manager Aminda at Contact@thebrokentoken.com - this goes for anyone that reads this: if any product does not work as intended please contact us - we can usually troubleshoot dividers, or replace parts that aren't working as intended.
Sigh. Seeing breakdowns.
by David Chien
I used this for my extensive Legendary cards and it's really starting to fall apart.
I think the additional wood joins don't allow for a persistent clean connection. A lot of my wooden dividers are now not able to connect properly as the walls start to flex. I have even had to deconstruct the frame and flip some of the wood pieces so that the wood can bend in a 'tighter' way.
I really wish either (1) the front and back walls are one true piece, or (2) the dividers go deeper into the slots, or (3) an interlocking wooden base is added to this to give it extra structural support.
Response: Contact us via email so we can help.
Made me willing to buy something from Hobby Lobby - and that's impressive!
by Rick Dickinson
I have quite a few card-based games, and I've recently sleeved almost all of them to protect the cards. The premium sleeves from Mayday Games are great, but they add to the thickness, and now many of my card games no longer fit into their original boxes.
This product is the PERFECT solution. Now, my copies of Cheaty Mages, Hanabi, Love Letter, Redshirts, Splendor, and several others, all fit nicely into a single, rather elegant case, with latches and a handle to carry it.
The parts went together easily, as is typical for Broken Token, and I used a few drops of wood glue here and there, as is typical for me. The result is basically perfect: I have a beautiful, yet functional, case for all of my cards.
Thanks again, Broken Token, for yet another fantastic product!
Has a Few Issues
I have owned both types of the PACG organizer and have consistently had the same issue: the dividers seem to not fit very well and often fall down, mixing the cards together. I purchased this and the artist case thinking that the issues I was having were with the fact that the game box sides were not rigid. I got this all put together and noticed that one of the dividers looked odd. Sure enough, one of the dividers fell out of its slot. I think the issue is that the middle rails just are not strong enough and bow.
Loose dividers, but issue can be solved easily
I noticed some of the small dividers were coming loose when moving the box around. There was slight bowing of the long dividers keeping the small dividers from staying put. You can line up small dividers on other rows to keep the bowing in check and push the long dividers close enough to each other to hold the small dividers in place. After storing cards for a day or two, the bowing seemed to settle down even when dividers were removed. Very nice, but heavy, storage solution. I'll admit I'm a bit nervous carrying the Hobby Lobby case around as the latches don't snap in securely, but that is no fault of this product.
Great organizer for standard size card games
This is a great organizer for standard size card games. I am just finishing up the on the hobby lobby artist case for my Star Wars the Card Game. I am looking forward to getting a few more of these for my other games. I am going to use this for cards against humanity and ascension plus other that may come up.
