Just saying. The insert is horrible. I think a total of zero brain cells were used in designing it. Okay. Now I'm done ranting. Thanks for listening. I'm going to go play the game.

The insert is fine, it just simply needs to be trimmed at the bottom to make it fit correctly.

I had a guide, a Bedouin man, who called me 'Abu el Banat'. And whenever we'd meet another Bedouin, he'd introduce me as Abu el Banat. And the Bedouin would laugh and laugh and offer me a Pint of beer. (cont below)

And I'd go to pay them for the beer and they wouldn't let me. "Abu el Banat" means "father of daughters." They thought the beer was the least they could do.

The only one you have to blame is yourself! That's what you get for stealing this from me in the math trade.

The designer put up a tutorial on how to modify it to work with sleeved cards. Works great after the fix.

I will look for this tutorial. Even though the point of my rant is I shouldn't have to search out a tutorial just to shut a box lid. Thanks for the suggestion.

If it makes you feel any better most of the inserts from Rio the last 3-4 years have sucked. You should see the one for Glen More

I trimmed everything and I still can't get the lid to lay flat unless I store the cardboard mats under the insert and move sleeved cards around to the side slots. I plan on ditching it entirely and organizing the game in a card box :/

BTW, it's the same crappy insert that came with Dominion: Alchemy.

I have the perfect solution for anyone's box insert problems.
Step 1: Open the box.
Step 2: Remove the insert and throw it away.
Step 3: Close the box.

Really do prefer Plano Boxes and Ziplocks.

And for no extra charge, a solution to using paper money in games.
First step: Throw paper money away.
Last step: Use Poker Chips.

I do this for most games. With this game though you have cards that are all separted, similar to Dominion, and I don't want 25 baggies in it.
