Simple question - does this board fit in the original box ok? It's a pretty packed box as is, I'd perhaps not think so...

the folded size will fit in the box, but if you still have the insert the box lid will not close properly. If you remove the insert then you can find a way to fit it in the box.

I have all of the expansions except for Realms. They are all in the base game box. Just ditch the insert.

I have kept the insert in the box and the 6-player board still fits. The box lid closes just as much as it does with all my other DoW game boxes (i.e., it just shows a tiny bit of the bottom of the box). I had originally put some empty punch boards under the insert to make the insert and maps flush with the box-top; but once I added the 6-player map, I just took those back out and everything fit nicely. Maybe there have been inserts of different heights from separate print runs of the game? (FYI, I keep all other expansions (BNA, GD, Cursed, RB, homemade races) in separate BNA boxes, so they're not fighting for space in the main box).

Thanks for your replies - sounds like I'll be getting rid of the insert sooner or later.

This. I don't yet own the board, but I have seen multiple people use this method...just remove the punchboards that kept the game flush and use the map instead. Easy fix, and you can keep the nice insert.
