I had some spare time on my hands and a couple of game boxes desperately in need of a decent insert...

I like to add all expansions to the base game box and, if possible, decrease setup time. Plus, the box has to close perfectly and has to stored upright... Designing these things actually feels like a brainy puzzle!

Anyway, here's my take on an insert for Eminent Domain + EmDo: Escalation + EmDo: Exotica + some promos...





If anybody wants to try this or has any questions, just ask!

Thats very nice. I do my own inserts as well but haven't gotten around to this game yet. Good job.

Did you abandon the folding board or is it nestled somewhere I don't see?

Thanks! I didn't abandon the board, it fits on top of the insert on the left side of the box. It sits snazzily between the side of the box and the role cards (who are slightly higher than the insert).

Looks great!

I might try this out, but I would need to make some adjustments for card sleeves. I currently use Ultra Pro deck boxes.

This is amazing. I definitely need to do this for my copy of eminent domain.

I've not built my own insert before. Is there a specific size of foam board to purchase? Are you using simple white elmers glue to put the pieces together?

I use the standard white foamboard with a thickness of 3mm. If you want something even more sturdier you can use 5mm.

Most of the time I use some Hobby Glue called 'Velpon' over here. It's a clear multi-purpose glue that dries in a couple of minutes.

The only plan I used is the SketchUp mock up (top image). All the necessary measurements are there, though!

I've you need any help, just ask!

Some nice ideas, but I use sleeves so this is no use for me. But I like it fits into original box. Will take some ideas and build my own. Thanks!
