So my quick and simple review of the Caverna insert from Broken Token... WOW!

It did take a little while to assemble, but I did it while watching some tv, so no big deal. Instructions were fantastic, well written, and easy to follow. I do recommend having a rubber mallet and some wood glue on hand, but I only had to glue about 3 pieces total. The mallet was necessary, but I want tight fits, so I don't mind that whatsoever.

The only criticism I can really give would it would be great to include a picture of where everything goes in the bottom tray. After loading up the pieces and seeing how perfectly everything fits into the box, I'm now itching to take it right back out and give it a play.

That's very important given that the setup had become a HUGE roadblock to playing (I just didn't want to take the 20+ min knowing I'd have to load the SOB back up into those baggies again).

Thanks and I'll be buying more going forward!

Completely agree.


our willingness to play went up considerably. We also keep most of the player boards under the bottom tray since we don't use them - less stuff to set aside.

Yep, great organizer.

I've travelled with mine a couple of times with it sitting on end, and I've noticed that if the box isn't tightly closed and the food chits are on top, a few will sneak down into sections below. Not a huge deal.

The Broken Token Caverna Organiser is the best thing that has ever happened to me.

This organizer has allowed this to hit my table far more often than it would without. I say this with confidence as setup time with other games, that contain less components than Caverna, has been an issue for me in the past.

Will it fit everything if cards are sleeved? I know there's not a ton of cards, but I thought I'd ask.

I don't see why sleeves would have any effect on being able to use this organizer, as they fit into the large open section in the bottom tray.

I have all my cards sleeved. It caused the little weapon/gold tray to float up just a tiny bit above from where it would normally settle. Everything still stacks together just fine and the box closes up the same. It's so minimal and nothing should be affected at all. I'm literally talking about 1/32 to 1/16 of an inch.

I'm posting a picture - though it's really not necessary. It really is so minimal you may not even be able to see it - but it's there.



Hope that helps.

I own quite a few of their organizers, and the Caverna one is by far my favorite. I only wish they made something similar for Agricola!

I just got this in today and I have PLENTY of room in case there are ever future expansions. Very nice to say the least.
