World of WarCraft: The Board Game - 3D Printed Insert

last updated June 21st, 2024 — created June 20th, 2024

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

This is our biggest insert ever. There are two large sets of drawers to hold the minis and everything else fits in the base game box (including both expansions). Table space has been a problem for us with this game. The insert was designed with this in mind.

  • Minis drawers make better use of vertical space
  • Play cards are divided across 3 trays so they can go where there's room
  • Tokens trays can be stacked if space is tight
  • Class trays get handed out during setup and keep unused cards out of the way during gameplay

There are pockets for the expansion characters tokens. Book, Bag, and Activation Tokens are stored upright, so you can easily pull sets. Setup cards for specific bosses get a paper sleeve and can be grabbed as needed.

This insert uses labels for organization and to decorate the minis boxes on our board game shelf. We used vinyl sticker paper to make it easy; just print, cut, and stick them right on the plastic. There are SVG cut files for non-rectangular stickers for those with a cutting machine.

World of WarCraft: The Board Game
NEWCombat Companion App
This app makes the dice and token combat system virtual. It's easier, less management, takes up less table space, and there are no tiny tokens to handle.
Fully Cooperative Variant
We have found that it is better to play this game fully cooperatively instead of as 2 factions. It's faster, more exciting, and has less downtime.
Errata Fix-It Stickers
We created a few fix-it stickers per the Errata listed in the FAQ.
Dice Tracker Companion App
This app's main goal is to allow players to keep a count of any dice they get without spending resources when they achieve higher levels.
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.
NEWArtisans of Splendent Vale
This mini-insert for the small components tuck box keeps numbered meeples ordered and ready for action!
The best part of this insert is how fast it makes the hero skills table setup. 5 seconds, no joke.
NEWTyrants of the Underdark
This insert fits the first edition box. It has player trays for the houses and organizes the cards (including the expansion decks) to make setup a breeze.
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.
Runebound Second Edition
This design covers every expansion, limits the boxes needed to play, and features boxes for Adventure Variants and Character Decks.
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.
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).
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.
The best part about this one is the dungeon tile stacks bin. It makes setup much, much swifter.
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.
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.
Runebound Third Edition
This design covers every expansion, has tokens sorted for convenience, and features boxes for each scenario.
We got a gorgeous new fossil stone chess set, but it came in a decrepit green box, so we made our own.
World of WarCraft: The Adventure Game
We designed custom faction boxes for the character decks and tokens. We also made draw bins for challenge decks, and a neat drawer bin for discovery tokens.
We kept the original plastic insert in the base game box and built this insert for the Melee Expansion box.
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.
