IsleOfSkyeInsert.zip (2.82 MB) (Log in or Register to download.)
Isle of Skye is a great game and beautifully produced, but the box looks very bare. This file contains a photo of the completed insert and two A4 pdfs which can be printed onto card,glued together and cut and folded to make the insert.

http://cf.geekdo-images.com/images/pic3125360.jpg https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3119184/isle-skye-chieftain-... to see how it fits.

Thanks to Andreas Pelikan for having no objection, and for a great game. He did mention that an extension is coming along, so not everything may fit in the insert if you get that.

The markings are a bit rough and ready - compare size to the bottom of storage box whilst folding and before trimming to make sure you don't cut too far.

1. Print A4 pdfs on to photo paper or thin card, and check they are the right width to fit the box. (Tweak printer settings if not)

2. Cut along AA and glue/tape/staple onto other piece at BB. I used photo paper & double sided sticky tape. Do not trim the other insert edges yet.

3. If using photo paper, or if card not thick enough, reinforce with another layer of thin card, overlapping at the join.

4. Cut through solid lines with sharp knife. There are 3 pairs of solid lines. Each pair forms the ends of a hole - one long hole for the long player shields with clan name, close to end of the card, and two holes next to each other for the window covers/scoring and for the shield side walls. Note that the solid lines across the join have lost the line middle section (my bad - drew across the piece that was cut off)

5. Score with something blunt(e.g. back of scissors) across the top of the insert along dotted line between each pairs of marks on the outside of the insert, to help get the folds in the right place.

6. Cut through just the card edge at other pairs of marks (NOT into coloured part of insert), then turn insert over and score on back to aid folding.

7. Fold along scored lines, so you have a series of troughs and top bars.

8. Push up the thin card strips at the ends of each trough, folding coloured faces together along the short dotted lines, so that the bottom edge strips end up at the same height as the top bars. Glue, tape/staple coloured faces together.

9. Trim off white edges enough to fit insert snugly into bottom of storage box.

10. (Optional) Use a coloured pencil on the creased lines to make them show less.

I also made up paper boxes (made larger as needed) from other upload 'Paper box for cards' to hold coins, and other parts.

Enjoy!
