I've gone and picked out minis to replace the agents in this game...



Of course, while the insert is quite well-designed for the game as it comes, there ain't no way I'm fitting those minis in there!

But this leads me to a bit of a concern. The box's construction is quite unique in that the sides aren't fully bound; they're two "L" shaped pieces. In other words, two corners are bound and two are not.

I'm worried that the box might lack integrity without the insert in there. Anyone tried it?

Can you put the minis underneath the insert?

I am going insert free and it is fine so far but it doesn't seem like the box can last as long as other boxes...

I could probably fit most of them under the insert, but not the dragon.

Also, I'm intending to sleeve the cards, so that's another reason the insert's probably not got long for this world.

I wrapped the "free" corners of the inner box sleeve with clear packing tape to make it all one solid piece.

This also provides a touch more friction to keep the upper lid in place.
