MADE IN THE USA
I tried to order it via US Amazon with free shipping but only received the version for Above & Below for THREE consecutive times. Had the refund, and never got what I wanted. Fed up and ordered directly from The Broken Token Store at higher total price due to shipment.
The insert itself is fair. I can squeeze in the Amber Mine expansion as well. However, I have the Complete Upgrade Kit of wooden tokens from MeepleSource, and the designated space for Banners and Animals can't hold them all, which have to spread among various places. Not good. One of the container and together with the Rulebooks make a box lift of ~1/2 to 3/4". I think it might be possible to reduce that if the boxes can be shorter to improve the space efficiency.
I love Ryan Laukat's games; I think he is amazingly talented and creative. But this is a review for the Broken Token's contribution to the art. A game is only as good as the time it spends at the game table, and a good way to guarantee that is fast setup. Near and Far has a lot of components and some fiddly setup. But the Token Team has created this organizer to facilitate that setup, make it a little faster, and provide some organization of components while at the table. I highly recommend this product to enhance your experience with the game and make setup and tear down fun, not a chore.
I know the description says that the box will not close after the trays and card holders are installed, but it is still a little annoying. That being said, I'm glad I have this setup. It makes setting up for the game so much faster and easier. This makes the game more likely to be played. And we do enjoy Near and Far very much. I would happily buy this insert again.
The laser cut designes were a nice touch but this is by far the worse insert I have ever gotten from Broken Token. The pieces for the game fit very loosely in their bit boxes. The bit boxes are loose inside the box and to make matters worse even without the expansion, the lid does not have a flush fit. It is lifted a good .25" on one side. With the way the pieces fit into the card holders and bit boxes much could have been done to make this insert a better fit.
