Any idea how to use it efficiently? I figured out where the base game goes and expansions too but what about the meeples and tons of space in the box?

One of the issues I have with this insert is that right now it can only be stored and moved in one position.

Looks like you need a baggie.

Or you could put the wooden components inside the tile-bag.

Pretty much why I hate stock plastic inserts. Sometimes I need to put a game vertical (transport or storage) and in mere seconds all of the components become messy. That or many of the plastics are also not sleeve friendly if a game needs to be sleeved (Chucked Splendor's and Clank's inserts after sleeving them both, Clank's was tossed after I got the Sunken Treasures insert).

I think there are boxes out there on Etsy that will help with storing the big box (previous big boxes had their own self contained wooden boxes, but this was before BB6.), but they can cost a pretty penny. The Broken Token insert won't fit in the big box (Too small, will rattle around inside and stuff will go out of the trenches, methinks)

Was thinking the wooden components separated into smaller baggies before putting them in the tilebag myself, Tom (though as a non-BB6 owner)

I have an older version of the Big Box which had a map on the inside lid for where things go. I actually ended up throwing the box away though and use something like this instead

Ok guys I messed up. There are isntructions on the box on the inside of the cover part. Generally I might be able to make this work but it could be way more optimal

No worries on that, just, watch out if you plan on having the box go vertical in some way.

Was anyone else missing a tile in the middle of one of their sheets?
