hello,

maybe some other people have the same problem like me?...
The hex tiles don't fit into the plastic box...they only fit very tight so that you damage them...also the three storing places for the round tiles...they are fitting not deep enough so that they are falling out of their place...
Maybe someone has a good idea...specialy for the hex tiles?
Maybe a linen bag or something like this...

The box for the hex tiles is a tight fit, but I had no problem squeezing them in. I had to push a bit, but I did it with about half of the tiles in a stack so they didn't bend.

The round holes are just too shallow, but I think Id rather arrange cubes and round discs in piles on the table, in order to not have the entire gamebox on the table while playing. There are enough gamecomponents to use up the space as it is. After the game I ziplock all the discs and cubes.

And I've got that problem as well.
But as Stony said if you put the hex tiles in as a stack, they won't bend (a single hex pushed to the bottom would see it's corners bend upwards).
And for the exploration tiles, after a game I store them underneath the evolution cards which works perfect.

The hexes do fit. It's a little tight, and I had the same fear as you, but once you push them in carefully, they fit perfectly.

I wonder, why the stack of 8 discovery tiles do not fit in the appropriate slots. But again, that's a minor concern...

For the hex tiles, you can cut the corners (about 1cm on each edge should do the trick). Thus, the borders will split out when you push the tiles in.

This is unnecessary.

The answer is simple: someone got the measurements wrong!

I assume you're talking about cutting the insert, not the tiles?

Yes, that's what he means... How can you even consider someone would advise you to cut your tiles?

I advise cutting boards sometimes.

I contacted Ludically that my inlay broke when I tried to put all the tiles in the inlay and asked for a new inlay, they said they will send a new inlay but it will be the same size.

go here to tell them if your box also was damaged, then they might do a better box the next time...

I ended up cutting a corner off the insert. Trying to force the hexes in was damaging the corners of the tiles. The insert was very undersized. All good now.

The cards do not fit anymore, when you sleeve them, either.

I just put everything into various zip bags.

Bye

The cards don't fit into their "designated" slots, but they will fit back in when sleeved.
Check out Sleeved cards? No problem!
