I've been pondering this one from The Broken Token for a bit. But I've no idea if it's pre-planned for space for the expansions.

Today I see this one from Thinker Tinker Maker, but no idea whether it will fund, etc.

I like that the TTM version has the parts marked on the dividers, but it seems less flexible. I also have experience with TBT's other offerings, and have been very happy with their fit and design.

In the end, I figure you either sort on setup or on cleanup, but I'd rather the setup be less of a hurdle, so an organizer makes sense for me.

Experience or opinions on either?

So I hadn't seen the Thinker Tinker one, that's kind of nice, but I do have the Broken Token one with the Suburbia Inc expansion and there's still plenty of room to grow. I'm really happy with it. Here's a picture I just took of it with the base + first expansion if you'd like to see how much room there still is, I don't think Suburbia 5 star is going to fill it up either.

I have the Broken Token one (just arrived on Monday) and I am quite happy with it. More than enough room for expansions.

My set is in baggies for now. I got some 1/4" MDF and plan on using some plans I found to make an organizer out of that.

Do these organizers have to stay horizontal? How do they fair vertical?

Mine sits vertically on my game shelf and I've never had a problem with it.

There is a kickstarter right now from Thinker Tinker Maker (a new company). He has some nice additions that are unique to their design like etched symbols on the dividers and it also works with the box store vertically. Plus they are only $23 shipped:

I use the Broken Token insert and I have Suburbia, Inc. and 5 Star and the Essen expansion in the box and there is still room left for another expansion. Truthfully, you probably can't go wrong with either insert, but the Broken Token insert is available now.

I ended up picking up the Broken Token insert... I feel like none of them really get it 100% right (I like the etched symbols on the TTM one, and some of the stuff in the Go7 one), but the Broken Token one was closest to my needs.

If the Thinker Tinker one had adjustable dividers I'd have probably gone for that one.

Same here. I also didn't want to wait months for it.

I also just got the Broken Token one and am very happy with it. It fits 5-star great too!
