Undead Winter Organizer
You don't have time for a long set-up when the zombies are closing in. Start fighting faster with our Undead Winter Organizer compatible with Dead of Winter game box. All game pieces are contained within removable trays making setup a breeze. The card lane is wide enough for sleeved cards and we include 13 dividers to separate every card type.
Notes on Sleeved Cards
The pictures show all cards sleeved in Mayday Premium Sleeves (MDG7077). Due to the extra space needed for premium sleeves, the card divider spacings are pre-set for you. Engravings on the side of the wall indicate which cards occupy each slot.
NOTE: Does not support Warring Colonies.

This organizer makes setup and tear down of the game much easier. I purchased this organizer about 2 years ago and every time I play Dead of Winter, I really appreciate this organizer. A few people in my game group usually ask why I spent the extra money for this and say it's because I like to keep games organized. However after we play and they see how fast I can put it away, they pull me aside and say "I see why you bought that. Oh and where did you get it?" Games can be a lot of fun, don't spend your evening setting up and tearing down - spend it playing.
Couldn't imagine playing without it
I bought both the organizer for the base game and the stand alone expansion for my wife this holiday season. We loved these games, but setup and take down took a lot of time which always made us hesitate to pull it out. Since we put this organizer together we have made more use of these games in the last few weeks then we did last year. This is a fantastic investment and I will certainly be purchasing more of these inserts in the future for other of my titles. Thank you Broken Token!
Makes Setup So Much Easier!
I'm really happy with this, it's super quick and easy to put together. This also shaved off so much time on setup. My only qualm is the card organizer's letters are blurry and hard to read
Easy to assemble
Love this organizer. It makes it so much easier to play the game without having to sort through all the little baggies and cards. It was really easy to put together. Will definitely be getting more of these organizers.
Bought this after one play. It keeps all the cards organized and ready to place in a hurry, which is a necessity to get games going quick. Highly recommend this to any owner of the game.
Best Way to Play!
I've owned DoW for about 2 years now and have played it with my friends on multiple occasions. It was *always* so difficult to keep things organized. There are soooo many different small parts that are difficult to keep together or find what you're looking for. This organizer is practically a godsend in that regard!
With places to put your cards, cutouts, and your other small items associated with the game, I don't think I can go back to NOT using it! It took maybe 30-45 minutes for me to put together alone and there was maybe one bit that I really had some trouble with, but even that still took a short amount of time to figure out. The whole thing fits neatly in the box, though I had to hammer it in a bit lol. It's also nice that there are only a few items that you really need to take out too, the rest of it stays in the box!
Easy to setup, a pleasure to use
Good layout, easy assembly, well designed and good quality. Will benefit from a little sanding or cutting, but not a must.

I had a hard time getting this game to the table before picking up the organizer. Setting up was just too much without it and very nice for putting away and storing.
Broken token for Dead of Winter
This is such a necessity for this board game. It drastically cuts down the set up and put away of all of the pieces.
Here are some general impressions I had:
- Good quality pieces, nice stiff materials
- Be careful with everything! Make sure you separate all the pieces and have double checked the placement, it can get a bit complex
- You will need sand paper and wood glue!
Here are some of the stand out positives:
- The first player token provided is awesome! It stands well and is much more fun to pass around.
- All the standees fit in the box with their stands on them.
- Organizes ALL of the cards with sleeves ( I used Ultra Pro 2 5/8" X 3 5/8" )
- There isn't a good spot for the location mats and they do slide around when in the box. I can't really blame broken token for this because these mats are a bit of an awkward size.
All and all this is a must have for this game. It easily doubles the enjoyment of Dead of Winter.

This organizer is PERFECT.
I received it today, and assembly took a little less than half an hour. I would recommend following the instructions before rushing to pop all the pieces out (like I did), as they are quite similar and numbered very well in the guide.
The labels and removable inlaid boxes take this one above and beyond.
It was frustrating trying to keep the different locations card decks organized, but the labels make setup/cleanup much easier.
The removable token box keeps our tabletop much more organized and easier to use during play.
Love the custom first player token standup, a clever bonus
I didn't use glue or sandpaper, though assembly was a little tricky at first getting things to stay in place while attaching the supporting pieces. Also, I don't sleeve my cards so I can't speak to that.
So Necessary you will be Angry it didn't come with your game
by Mark Hengst
This is quite simply the best, most necessary accessory I have seen for Dead of Winter. Games like this can be hard to get to the table due to the amount of tokens and cards and miniatures. This organizer fits everything and lets you set up very quickly. It was easy to put together, didn't require any tools on my part, and more importantly the care and attention shown is stellar. The areas are marked clearly to show you what goes wear, which I find very important. I also like that they included a nice wooden player one token that beats the one that comes with the game. Cannot recommend enough!!!
Apart from my standard complaint of the material used, plywood which seems more prone to splintering, instead of perhaps something sturdier like MDF...
1) I don't really see the need or why intentionally leaving a gap of unused space in the insert.
2) I personally wished they had more effective use of the space for the tokens and characters half of the insert, in the process of using up the gap, where the character and location sheets can fit snugly into that half on top of the characters tray
Must Have Efficient Organizer
I love the game alot, but it took a while for me to set and break the game down due to the numerous tokens and standees. After searching the net for a small organizing box to fit in the game's box, I found this. After purchasing and setting up (it took a while because i wanted it to be perfect) , I find the setting up and breaking the game down became a breeze. I still kept the original card sleeves that came with the game, and the cards still fit with the organizer. Everything has its place and easy to use. My friends were impressed with the organizer itself and it was money well spent. I am hoping that the Long Night Expansion organizer would be just as efficient and hope there is a V2 coming out for the expansion too.
Top Notch .. get it?! ;)
Just finished assembly and sleeving. AMAZING! I didn't use glue and only one joint needed some shaving. I own three of Broken Token organizers and will be buying from them exclusively!
I can confirm that FFS Standard Clear Sleeves, fit BEAUTIFULLY with zero card issues. All cards are sleeved excluding crossroads. I didn't sleeve them mainly because that's a huge stage to be used and currently CR don't get handled as much as rest of the game cards.
Dead of Winter Orginizer
Great product. It went together with out a problem no glue used, fits nice and snug in the box and i use ffg premium sleeves for the cards and they all fit in the right slots.
So much easier to bring to the table.
by Chris Williams
The only real problem I've had with this organizer is that the sleeved cards can get a tad snug. Other than that it makes bringing the game to the table so much easier!
Better Than Bags!
First organizer purchase and I couldn't be happier. I'm the most un-handy guy in the world and I had a fun and easy time putting it together. I didn't end up using any wood glue, but the game box itself held the big pieces together perfectly and the smaller trays had no issues staying together. It made my first gaming experience with it actually look good instead of a mess of tokens piled around. Bit pricey, but I'll take these neat, compact wooden trays over ziploc bags any day. As a side note, I do not use sleeves on the cards so the decks may not fit as snugly in the card sections, but that is no issue to me at all.
1st Broken Token Organizer - Will get more!
This was our first experience with Broken Token (BT) and we chose this game specifically because it has so many pieces to keep track of. Not only does this organizer make set up and break down easier, it looks AMAZING. I would recommend this to anyone who has ever decided not to play Dead of Winter at some point because it was too much of a hassle to get going/clean up. This BT organizer solves those problems.
RESPONSE: Welcome to the family! Thanks for the kind words! Game On My Friend
Big help! (not quite perfect)
I bought and assembled this as a Christmas gift, and the recipient was very pleased. We played right away and it was awesome how much faster set up and clean up were.
I found that everything fit together well, no glue required. Everything punched out cleanly as well; my technique was to twist the pieces.
Only thing keeping it from being perfect is, as other reviewers noted, the lack of space for the character and location cards. If we split the pile in half, we had room for them and the instructions with the lid only sticking up a tiny bit.
The organizer makes setup, play and tear down a breeze. Perfectly created for this game.
Good idea implemented well
The organizer does require a little attention to detail, but is not difficult to assemble. Once assembled everything fit into the box neatly and is aesthetically pleasing. The engravings for the names of objects was a nice touch.
Would definitely recommend to anyone who owns this game.
by Jacob Black
This was the first TBT insert I purchased for a game. The original insert for the game is terrible. If you're reading this you probably know the pain of resorting all of the (13?) card decks each time you open the box. Digging through piles of standees to find the right character amidst a sea of zombies. The baggies for all of the dice and tokens. I'm happy to say this insert is a great time saver! Trays for the dice&tokens, separated zones for the zombies and characters, and labeled dividers for each and every deck in the game with room for sleeved (mayday premium here) cards.
Easy to assemble, very nicely crafted. Fit the box like a glove! Only thing I recommend is cutting the portions that are used to attach the pieces to the "Sprue" otherwise you will get some nasty tear out.
It is what it needs to be
This organizer does the job correctly. Assembled easily and fits everything well. The slanted dividers for the cards are nice and the trays make set up very easy. The laser cut wood was cut to the right dimensions. I like to make my own storage out of wood as well, but would not have been able to assembly a finer box myself.
I was not expecting the level of quality that this organizer has! Unfamiliar with Broken Token I bought this on a whim and was expecting a cardboard (or something similar) construction. When I opened it and realized it was wood I was pleasantly surprised and understood the price a little more. There were a few corners/connections that required some tape and glue but nothing that isn't listed in the instructions. My biggest complaint seems to be a shared sentiment in that there isn't an ideal location for the player cards.
