Trash these bad, non-functional, too small, too big, poorly designed inserts.

Here are the good ones: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/41461

Place the cards in the insert and watch as they flop around the box. Trash it!

Let's jam some more stuff into this little box - including a useless insert.

Did they put the wrong insert in here? I don't even understand it. It's just a bunch of cards and couple of dice and wooden blocks. What are these spaces for?

The insert doesn't do anything except make the box 4x bigger than it needs to be.

An obvious choice. The insert works well enough, but you have to perform surgery on it to close the lid completely. The only box I can think of that comes partially open while still in shrink wrap. Shameful!

Very poor choice of plastic. If you're going to put 30 mammoths in a tiny little box you better use something other than a brittle, thin plastic.

It was cracked when new, and once you punched the game it was impossible to fit the contents back in the box!

Was this even designed for this game? Or was it something they still had on the shelf?

Ridiculous, especially if you don't bag it and try to scoop out the 1vp or the 1db and you're forced to take the entire insert out of the box to get it.

Yes, you heard it right. Very clever design for sure, everything has it's own little space. Hey look, separate tray for the units! With lid! The enthusiasm last until you try to pry out that lone unit that fell over laying flat on the bottom of it's pit, or you have to deal with your OCD when you couldn't line up nicely your VP chips, and another bunch of annoying little issues. Brilliant design, good quality, yet I rather keep the game pieces in a plano box...

I gather the insert in the more recent edition is much improved, though.

I don't know if others have had this issue, but the wells just aren't deep enough and the board doesn't fit snuggly on top, so if the box shifts at all in transit all the colors get mixed in with one another.

Looks like a great insert, right? Well it has 3 problems:
#1 - The insert doesn't have sides so it can shift around freely within the box.
#2 - The place for the cards isn't deep enough for all of them.
#3 - That big empty (pointless) well next to the chips allows all the chips to just roll right out of their area, which causes the insert without sides to shift, which causes the cards that are hanging out over the top to slide over into the other areas.

The box is about twice the height of the previous edition, filled with molded plastic that kinda fits the base game (and takes up to much space) WITH NO ROOM FOR ANY EXPANSIONS (this includes the 5-6 player one).
note, the new seafarers and knights use the same insert... and the boxes are the same size... for about 1/3 the components.
remove plastic and you can fit them all in one box...yuk

Causes the cards to become warped and bent (which is noticeable when you pile the cards on top of each other and see that each card pile is distinguishable by a different warp). Also, once the cards are out of the shrinkwrap the compartments are too small to fit them. They fit but if you put the game in your bag or carry it anywhere by the time it gets to ints destination all the cards are all over the place.

Similar to Agricola, we got a first edition copy of Age of Empires III that had no insert. Plus the box was too large and flimsy---the board rattled around, and there was a lot of dead airspace even with so many components so that the top had partially caved in. The components are great, but I'm a little disappointed at the box and packaging.
