This insert is designed to be compatible with Near and Far®, and the Amber Mines expansion. The design provides both efficient storage and improved game play. Many of the trays can be utilised during the game, and they greatly aid set-up and clear-away times. The rules, books, and boards act as a lid on top of the trays.
There are eight trays for the player pieces, the character standees and sheets. There are two trays for coins, meaning they can be spread around the table making access easier. The coin trays are sufficiently large for the metal coins should you have them. Each player has their own tray for their colour.
The four resource trays have separate slots for each kind of token and the dice and stands.
All the trays can be used during the game to organise the components and make access by all players easy. This also speeds up setup and clear-away times.
The game boards, rules and storybook fit in a recess on top of the lower trays. The storybook goes first, with the boards next and rulebook last. This provides space for the ring binder on the storybook. The rulebook is followed by the story book, then by the game board and player boards, and then by the Amber Mines rulebook and the board overlays.
Last goes the game atlas, which fills the top of the box, acting as a lid on all the trays below. There is a gap next to the rules underneath that allows the ring binder to not impact on the box lid when closed. The game can be stored vertically, and transported safely provided the lid is kept in place.
Materials: printed card, EVA foam. Assembly with PVA (paper) glue required.
