Hi all, I don't own Mage Knight, but I've been asked to make a fancy wooden box for all the components. The owner has the Broken Token insert, so I have a basic length x width measurement, but I need the thickness of all the books and other materials that don't fit in the insert. Any help? A measurement in either mm or 1/8ths of an inch would be great.

Whatever answer you get, add a bit more. I have the base rule books plus the expansion rule books, plus a couple pages of index, a page showing the city enemies, some player aids, some sheets to keep track of games, some sheets of FAQs. i.e. a lot more than the basic rule books. I doubt I'm alone.

The two rulebooks and two boards from the base game take up about 9 to 10 mm. I can compress them down to about 6 mm without excess force.

Wait. So the Broken Token insert doesn't leave enough room for the rulebooks?

Ok, very cool everyone, thank you.

Hero guy, I'm building a custom box for the game, and I needed to know the height required, that's all.

Oh, ok. Cool, because I was thinking of getting one of those Broken Token inserts and not being able to fit the rulebooks in the box would be a deal breaker for me. I've always assumed that the books would fit with the inserts.

I just got the Broken Token insert for the game and there is enough room for rulebooks. I only own the base game, so maybe adding three more rulebooks would push the lid up just a little bit, but the lid fits snugly with some room to spare right now.
