Player Trays make such a difference
Posted by Roger on 14th Jan 2018
I love so much about this organizer, but the best part of it is the player trays. They made me feel happy with the investment. I wish there were more distributors that carried these products in Canada on a regular basis as the shipping is expensive, but I do not regret any part of this purchase, despite the extra cost. It wasn't so bad as I ordered three other organizers at the same time.
Almost a necessity
Posted by Chris M. on 12th Jan 2018
Terraforming Mars is a lovely game, but boy howdy are there a lot of cubes and no great ways to manage them out of the box. They range from 7mm to 10 mm in size, and while there are plastic bags for them it can still get a little problematic. The included player mats, while colorful and clear, are completely flat, meaning an inadvertent jostle can scatter the cubes marking your income and resources and seriously mess up your game.
The replacement player boards with cut-outs are extremely helpful for preventing these mishaps, and in addition have places indicating 20 or 30 resources (the included mats only have a 10 spot) - something very useful if your game goes long or you get the right cards. Do be careful separating the pieces for assembly of the boards, however - there are some thin bits you really don't want to break. Also note that the player marker cubes are stored on the boards in the box, and the top player board gets covered by the game board, so if the box is kept moderately horizontal there should be no spillage of the cubes.
The two trays that hold the forest/city tiles and the megacredit cubes are extremely handy for keeping all those parts available to players and organized. Making sure you've got roughly equal amounts in each is a bit of a time sink, but it makes gameplay move faster and reduces the risk of losing the bronze megacredit cubes - the smallest of the bunch.
The card holder is attractive, with the retro rocket design, and comfortably holds the base game cards sleeved with Mayday Premium card sleeves (a little more than twice as thick as the standard sleeves). I did use one included divider to keep the corporation cards separate from the game cards, but don't really know of a good use for the second divider; perhaps you can have separate draw/discard sections with unsleeved cards.
Note that if you have the Hellas & Elysium expansion and want to store that board with the core game, there's no "extra" space for it; your box lid will not close flush with the bottom. With one board, however, I get very close indeed to a perfectly flush closure.
I recognize that this organizer is almost as much as the core game itself, but if you've the funds it really does make the storage - and the playing - of the game a lot easier.
Worth Every Penny

This insert fits the box very well. The player trays are way better than the player sheets. I will never go back to those sheets again. By far the best thing from this insert if you ask me.
The tokens for the tracks worth well. They don't need to be glued and the added 3D from them is nice.All my cards are sleeved and I had no problem fitting them all.
The first expansion map does make the box lid not lay completely flat, but its not really a big deal. I store the game horizontally and the pieces don't appear to shift much.
Very good organizer

Very good organizer the only issue I had was I had to glue the acrylic pieces together.
Best Insert for a great game
Posted by Ricardo Luna on 21st Dec 2017
I order this as part of my Black Friday haul and it arrived in a large cardboard box. I am used to inserts coming in bags so I was pleasantly surprised as it was well protected. Upon inventorying the contents it appears as a lot of of-of pieces so I settle in for the long haul. I got going and realize that it is best if you can have the parts list on the screen while using the step by step instructions at the same time without having to flip back to see where every piece is located. To my surprise, this went together a lot quicker than anticipated. The fit of the pieces if perfect. I ended up not using any glue and it is very precise fit. Going in my only concern was the player mats. I like the color ones but quickly realize this was two piece setup. Meaning I can sandwich an underlay between them. The underlays are not supplied but there are a few floating around BGG. I opted for a design of my own but that was just personal preference.The cardholder is large enough for sleeved cards and I think may be able to accommodate all the expansion card from Venus Next but not sure if it will accommodate the extra board and miscellaneous components. In all this is a perfect insert for a much-loved game.

The construction of the insert was pretty straight forward. It required sand a few pieces and glue to only the first player marker. The fit in the box might be a little too snug, but sanding some pieces seemed to have helped a great deal.
I'd buy it again, but not perfect with expansions
Posted by Kris on 19th Dec 2017
I don't really hold anything against this product at all. It would work perfectly for a base-only game. But with the board expansion, as noted elsewhere, the box lid is elevated when closed. Not usually a big deal, but there is a token tray that depends on the lid to be shut to keep the tokens in place (unless I'm missing something). The result is a TM box that I've got to keep flat at all times. Also there is no fun acrylic token for the Venus track like there are for the Generation, O2, and Temp tracks. But all this said, BT can't be expected to anticipate every possible expansion so I don't fault them at all. The insert works fantastic and is very well thought out, like always!
Response: Thank you for the feedback. We will continue to evaluate options for upgrading this insert going forward, but we like to make sure we wait for all expansions to release that we know about.
Another quality product

A great organizer for Terraforming Mars, I was pleased with the purchase.

This kit was great with the exception it didn't really account for the new board expansion. Very well made and another great release by the broken token!
Changes the game!
Posted by Unknown on 11th Dec 2017
I was very disappointed with the original components of this game. The player boards are incredibly cheap and a simple nudge can ruin a game. These components completely change this. The player boards are basically perfect (with the exception of the stylized '8s' in the bottom portions) and make the game so much more pleasurable to play. The tolerances on the pieces are amazing and I didn't even have to use any glue to keep them together (so far). Would totally recommend to anyone
