okay.. so I built foam core inserts for 3 of my games (Alien Frontiers, March of the Ants, and Dead of Winter: Crossroads). But now I have the original inserts leftover that I don't know what to do with.. In particular, I have the Kickstarter version of Alien Frontiers Kickstarter, which came with tuck-boxes for all the player components, as well as the Alien Tech and Agenda Cards. I also have the hard box for the AF Factions expansion, plus all the individual faction pack softboxes.

I hate to throw them out, since they're in great condition, but at the same time, I don't really need them because all the pieces fit in the custom insert i made.

Are the boxes worth anything? Any suggestions on what to do with them?

I have a small tote with unused inserts, in the case that I resell/trade a game.

If you don't ever plan to resell or trade, chuck it in the trash or put it up on BGG's bazaar, there are always people looking for inserts

I've pretty much gotten to the point where any expansion I include in the original game box the expansion box goes into the trash. It took awhile to get there but I have a lot more room now

If you aren't an avid PnP gamer, throw them out!

Inserts are ideally there to help organize your game (realistically they are there to help the pieces not get jumbled on the trip to you). So if you have a better system, simply throw the old insert out. Easy as pie.

As for the boxes, either toss them or repurpose them. I've cut out the facing of a number of boxes and hung them on the wall of my game room. They work really well. I also use some boxes to hold gaming supplies. The Village Port expansion box currently houses my miniature paints and supplies when not in use.
