Since I already had the plans from EOoG up I used some of their dimensions to create the base box and walls. I really liked the way they carved out an inset on top that the board and rules could sit down in so I used that idea as well. Then I started applying my own ideas to the project.
I had three main goals in mind that I wanted the insert to achieve.
- Utilize the box space efficiently
- Assist in set up and tear down of the game
- Assist in play of the game
The first seems obvious but can be hard to achieve. It needs to store components tightly but allow for easy access. The second and third are very important to me. If I am going to the trouble to design and create an insert it had better do something more than store the game. If the components are organized correctly set up and tear down time can be minimized and it can actually be functional while playing the game.
