Chelsea Wirth of Makezine.com decided to create an insert for her copy of Settlers of Catan. The reasons are elegantly explained by her:
"I feel as though I speak for most Settlers of Catan board game fans when I say that nothing is more disheartening than opening the box and looking down at a chaotic disaster of cards and hexagons. After painstakingly sorting out all the pieces last time I played (delaying for at least 10 minutes my unfortunate defeat by an opponent with the longest road), I decided something had to be done. Although it does nothing for my mediocre Catan skills, this board game box insert is a great and easy way to organize all the pieces while still using the original box."
I enjoy biking and hiking in the great outdoors, playing and designing board games, and drinking amazing craft beer.
