World of WarCraft: The Adventure Game - Foam-Core Insert

last updated August 1st, 2019 — created August 1st, 2019

For each insert we create, we have a few standard design goals:

  • Reduce setup time as much as possible
  • Have separate component trays for "setup components" and "gameplay components"
  • Allow for vertical box storage without components crushing each other
  • Fit sleeved cards

After sleeving the cards, we found that all the components would not fit nicely into the base box. So, we designed custom faction boxes to store the character decks and tokens. For the insert, we decided to make draw bins for the challenge decks, and a neat little drawer bin for the discovery tokens. Below are pictures of the full insert, as well as the faction boxes. For the adventure deck draw bins, we wanted to make sure you wouldn't be able to see the bottom card, to stay consistent with the original mechanic. However, we didn't like having to draw from the bottom of a deck either. So, we just made the front wall full height and allowed for drawing from the other end, which faces away from the players.

World of WarCraft: The Adventure Game
Rules Variants
For balance reasons we removed a space near Undercity and are restricting the use of Grumbaz Crowsblood to solo play.
Other Insert Projects
NEWHarry Potter: Hogwarts Battle
This insert houses the base game and both expansions in the base game box. Setup is quick with several play trays that go straight from box to table.
NEWSanctum
The best part of this insert is how fast it makes the hero skills table setup. 5 seconds, no joke.
NEWArtisans of Splendent Vale
This mini-insert for the small components tuck box keeps numbered meeples ordered and ready for action!
Twilight Imperium Fourth Edition
This insert is designed for optimal setup speed. It has a few setup trays to pull components from, and then all play trays go straight from box to table.
Star Wars: Rebellion
This is most certainly our best insert ever. It has a lot of cool features that we'd never be able to do with foam-core, like sets of miniatures drawers.
StarCraft: The Board Game
For this insert, we decided to make player trays for the base game box and store all the other components in the expansion box.
Runebound Second Edition
This design covers every expansion, limits the boxes needed to play, and features boxes for Adventure Variants and Character Decks.
DungeonQuest Revised Edition
This insert is one of the first that we did with multiple trays. It has card drawers for each mini-deck as well as small trays for all tokens.
Runebound Third Edition
This design covers every expansion, has tokens sorted for convenience, and features boxes for each scenario.
Wiz-War
For this game we decided to store the base game and both expansions in one box with an overflowing insert (the lid doesn't fit on all the way).
Drakon
The best part about this one is the dungeon tile stacks bin. It makes setup much, much swifter.
Risk: Star Wars Black Edition
This was our first crack at making a 3D printed insert. It features rounded edges for easy component scooping and a draw deck space for each player.
D&D Adventure Board Games
We created a box to store all the heroes so we'd be able to easily select any hero from any of the sets no matter which game we pulled off the shelf to play.
Chess
We got a gorgeous new fossil stone chess set, but it came in a decrepit green box, so we made our own.
Enigma
This was the first insert we ever made. If we ever remake this it will be very different. But it was certainly a useful learning experience.
Chaostle
We kept the original plastic insert in the base game box and built this insert for the Melee Expansion box.
