Can someone post a picture of how you managed to fit everything in the insert? Not sure where to store all of the Plymouth Street tiles...

This is an older photo, and I've made a couple tweaks since then:
- Placed all German tiles underneath insert w/punchboard frames to raise entire insert to prevent any wiggle room in box (and store extraneous German components of course).
- All Location Tiles are now stored in a single large slot (lower right)
- Cut out a small part of one punchboard frame to put underneath the Location Tiles in the larger slot. This prevents the tiles from getting stuck which could lead to eventual mashed corners. I also added 2 German Location Tiles on the left and 2 German Location Tiles on the right of the stack to further prevent any mashed corners.
- Have rearranged the components a bit in the upper right slot since I plan on using the 2 mini-expansions every game.

Another idea is to store the treasure chests upside down - then the vacant spaces can be used to keep separate the various commodity, galleon, frigate and other tiles.

There's more than enough room to store everything.

Here's how I do it:



I only have the two sets (English language) of Plymouth Street tiles in the insert. They fit beautifully in the lower left compartment in my above photo. I have put the the third set (German language) under the insert, since you don't need the third set anyway. There's a spot where the base of the insert isn't quite as deep, and a complete set of Plymouth Street tiles fits conveniently right there in two piles.

You should find that this nicely gives you enough room to put everything in the box insert.

To those people who have yet to acquire the game, or those yet to punch out the pieces - don't punch out the 16 Location tiles you don't need (You don't need the ones that are yellow on both sides if your language is English, blue if German) and don't punch out the spare sets of 3 Frigates and 4 Spanish defenders. Those un-punched sheets can then be placed under the insert.

If you have already punched out the game but still have the sprues, those pieces can easily be slotted back in place for storage under the insert, as described.
