Hello fellow Firefighters!

I got my Game Crate from Broken Token last weekend.
(For Europeans: Spelspuk.nl has/had them in stock and is located in the Netherlands.)
I opted for the standard version. The limited, engraved version would have been too much for my bank account - and my wife's patience *lol*

http://www.thebrokentoken.com/flash-point-fire-rescue-game-c...

The assembly was nice as always. Not a single drop of glue was needed to get the entire organiser together. I was (and still am) impressed!

I have the base game and all available big and board expansions (US, 2S, ED, DW, HD, TE). Everything fits in there perfectly! Additional Kickstarter/promo material (realistic POIs, locked doors, ...) will fit, too. 14 specialists and the six standard minis each have their own place. There is even space for at least one more board.
The organisation of the tokens in the six flexible holders is really well done. Three separate cases for POIs (normal, empty, special) are an excellent example for the good structure. There is one case for standard doors, one for fire doors and locked doors and one for the markers "jammed".
You can put the two boxes with the tokens that are not used that often (foam, ladders, toxic spill, ...) below the other boxes next to the specialists. There are even one or two (depending on where you put the coloured plastic clips to label the fire fighters) empty cases. Mine are with the Hot Spots. You even have four stickers included so that the box stays where it is and does not scratch the underground. The lid fits fine and the whole box is a real pleasure to pack, watch, lift, open und use!

Where is the poop?
None - for me!
I do not know whether all cards from the base game and Tragic Events fit if you sleeve them. I do not sleeve. But as there is still place in the large bottom case with all the boards, you could surely put some cards there. But please as BT themselves about this topic.

PS: I do not work for or know people at Spelspul.nl and/or Broken Token. But as the product/service is good, I just want to inform you.

Edit: I hope, it is okay to link the product. I will remove the link if is not, of course.

I have only sleeved the specialists cards and help cards using Mayday Magnum sleeves (so not the thickest in the market).
Now the event cards and all cards from all expansion still fit when palced in two stacks over those larger specialists cards. They are not sleeved in my case and that barely fits.
Therefore, the answer is clearly that if you want to sleeeve all the cards, another solution for storage must be found (placing the specialsits cards with the map baords in a ziploc?).

This being said, I do not regret this purchase. I have used some glue here and there, just for safety, though.

Finally, I am now looking for a fire engine mini and an ambulance mini which could both fit in the crate.
Any idea about the scale I should look for?

Not knowing anything about fitting in the crate, I think the 2009 Hallmark Ecto-1 ornament would be about the right size...

THAT would be a hell of an ambulance to play with!

I love this crate.

I haven't sleeved my character cards, or my coloured fireman cards.

I have Tragic Events, and I have sleeved the Fire Deck because that gets shuffled a lot. There is room for a sleeved Fire Deck and an unsleeved Events Deck in the card bay of the tray.

There is not room for sleeved events cards, however I could sleeve them and store them with the maps if I really wanted to.

I have all of my cards sleeved, and they fit just fine. I have the event deck and fire deck on top of the reference and specialist cards. I just make sure to put this tray on the top layer of the crate. I've also rubber banded the event/fire deck so they don't spill. It works beautifully for me
