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.
NOTE: We've been informed that there are different Dead of Winter game boxes. See box measurement note below.
This organizer is designed for the original Dead of Winter® game. If you're looking for an organizer designed for Dead of Winter®: The Long Night please see our Long Winter Organizer (ORG069).

Oustanding product! But pricey....

I was hesitant to buy the Dead of Winter organizer at first, because let's face it.... these things are not cheap; however, buying this organizer was one of the best decisions I've ever made! I love board games, but I hate it when companies skimp out on a good box/organizer. I could not have been more pleased with this product. Its easy to assemble, separates every component neatly, fits in the box perfectly, and comes with some very practical, removable trays for the more commonly used items. As another reviewer already stated, "No more bags!" This organizer makes setup and take down of the game much quicker. The Broken Token hands down crafts the best organizers I've ever seen! Way better than most of the junk that usually comes with your off-the-shelf board game.<br><br><br><br>If these organizers were half the price (like $15-$20), I would buy them for all of my board games; however, I'm stuck having to pick and choose which organizers are most important, because they are so expensive. It can't possibly cost that much to make one of these things! I could buy a whole other board game for the same price! They are really outstanding products, which is why I can justify buying one here and there. Its unfortunate they are so over priced, because I (along with many others) would buy many more of these organizers if they were cheaper, thus sending the company much more money! But since they are so pricey, the adverse happens and I end up spending way less money....<br><br><br><br>Again, these organizers are absolutely amazing.... if you can afford them.... But until they drop in price, I would only recommend buying organizers for your favorite, most frequently played board games. The saying "you get what you pay for" definitely applies here. You sure as heck pay.... but you do get an outstanding product.<br><br><br><br>5 stars for design, 5 stars for quality, 5 stars for practicality, 5 stars for function, 5 stars for additional awesomeness, 2 stars for being overpriced....<br><br><br><br>Response: We appreciate your feedback on the quality and the pricing. Unfortunately they are very expensive and time-consuming to make. It takes quite a bit of overhead to keep this business running and continuing to make high quality products. The concept of selling more at a lower price unfortunately would not work for us because we are continually at maximum production. The time-constraints of laser cutting and the cost of equipment is the main reason for what dictates the price. We certainly understand though that people are budget conscious and we do our best to produce a high quality product at as low a price as possible and will continue to look for ways to cut costs and keep prices down. Thank you!
Excellent insert... with no room for expansion?

I have the revised version of the insert, the version meant for sleeved cards, and it's really nice. I own a couple other Broken Token inserts (Battlestar Galactica and King of Tokyo) and this is just as nice as those. Compared to the insert included in the game, or throwing everything in bags and tossing them into the box, this insert is amazing. Everything fits perfectly, but I fear that there is no room for potential expansion content. I guess this isn't the insert's fault, because the game includes a lot of cards, but it does leave me a little worried. There is, however, an unused section in the insert that more cards could easily be stored in with little modification. For the base game only, this insert is a must-have. We'll see what happens in the future.

In addition to the previously mentioned issues (not enough dividers, not labeled dividers), the layout does not leave any room for the larger cards (locations/player aids), meaning they sit on top of the board which means that the box does not close flush. A minor annoyance, but seems like a miscalculation. <br><br><br><br>Response: The design was made for the cards to sit on top since they are so large. This should allow the box to close flush with no problems as long as you spread the cards out.
Easy to assemble, and so helpful.

Prior to this organizer, the box was a disaster. Set up took too long, and the table looked cluttered. Now set up is a breeze and every component has their place. I wish it came with more card dividers like others have said, but works well regardless. I'm looking forward to purchasing more organizers in the future.
survival is the challenge, organization is the key

There's no joke surviving the winter in an apocalypse, but being organized gives you a sense of hope! All my card decks are separated for easy setup. My tokens are in removable trays and separated, the zombies and characters are separated into a divided removable tray. Making it easy to Jump right into a game and try to discover who the traitor is. I'm am completely satisfied with this product. Affordable and Convenient
Perfect product for unsleeved cards

Since I bought this organizer it's made clean up and set up a breeze. <br><br><br><br>Having removable compartments allows my group just to pass whats needed around the table than everyone being force to reach across the table and dig in the box.<br><br><br><br><br><br>This would easily be a 5 star product if it had room for sleeved cards while being able to use the same amount of provided dividers. Once the retro-fit kit becomes available i'm sure I'll be enjoying it that much more.<br><br><br><br>If you dont plan on sleeving your cards this will be a fantastic addition to your Dead of Winter experience allowing the flow of the game to continue rather than digging through little baggies or reaching over everything to grab from little piles.
Great divider with oddity
2/24/2015 9:00:00 pm
Overall, I love the Dead of Winter divider. It not only holds all the pieces, but the removable trays make setting up and playing the game a lot easier.<br><br><br><br>The oddity is that the kit doesn't include enough card dividers to actually separate out all the different card types as shown in the illustration. There are enough slots in the organizer to do it, but the kit is two dividers short of being able to use all of them. Minor issue, but weird.
Shipped an old product, works okay ,not great.

My review is for the first version of this product, now sold as DOW-BO1-OLD. The containers for the dice, tokens, characters and zombies all work well, and the start player knife is cute, but doesn't fit into the box as shown in the pictures. The card lane on the left is different, and doesn't have labeled or custom sized slots, so sleeved cards don't fit properly. The package also didn't include enough card dividers to fill the available slots OR properly sort all of the cards. It looks like these issues are addressed with DOW-BO1-NEW, but I don't have that product to confirm. It's not really promised in the picture, but there doesn't appear to be a place to store the player and location mats, so I keep them ontop of the gameboard.<br><br><br><br>Having said all of that, the pieces do fit together well, and make setting up and cleaning up the game much easier. The whole package took about 45 minutes to assemble, and did not need glue or tape.<br><br><br><br>I've contacted BT, but haven't heard a response yet. This is the first product of theirs that I've been disappointed in.<br><br><br><br>Response: Sorry you were disappointed. We've done our best to address the problems from the first version and stated that we will update any current customers. I can only imagine you contacted us this weekend and today is just Monday, so you should receive a response shortly. The first player marker was shrunken in size in the new version but you can store yours in the larger slot in the back just fine. The game board and oversized locations and player cards are meant to store on top.
Not quite what you see in the pictures.
2/28/2015 9:00:00 pm
This is generally a good product, but it does differ from the provided pictures in several ways:<br><br>- There are only 11 dividers and not the 13 seen in the pictures<br><br>- The different card slots are not labeled for each type of card<br><br>- All the pictures inaccurately depicts the card dividers in the final product<br><br><br><br>This is still a good product and would receive a 5-star rating if only 13 card dividers were provided, rather than the 11 delivered.<br><br><br><br>I understand that BT might be providing 2 extra card dividers based on Max's review earlier and, if so, that would be great.<br><br><br><br>Ultimately, the main issue is that the pictures do not accurately depict the final product.
Best organization for Dead of Winter

This is a great organizer as it appears to provide space for any possible expansions.<br><br><br><br>The only downside is that it comes with 11 card dividers instead of the 13 shown in the pictures above, and as mentioned in other reviews. I understand that BT might be helping current customers with this concern now and in future versions of the product, so we will see what happens.
