I’ve been thinking of a good way to organize Elder Sign and expansions, so I sought out plans for inserts and was amazed to find people selling dozens of different types.

Some of this shit cost over a hundred bucks.

Insanity!

I ended up cutting up two of my old STF prototype boards and spent under two hours on it. Like, simple shit, no planning. Design goals were to make a system that I could pop in and out of the box easily and not have a pain to set up every time.

Literally ghetto built this with hot glue and foam core... and a bit of pilfered ribbon.

Saved at least 30$.

That looks really good. How many expansions do you have in there?

Nice! Glued and pinned foam core is ace for custom made inserts. For my copy of Cthulhu Wars I made some that were able to fit the following in the core box: the minis for all 8 factions (minus the High Priests), the plastic gates and the HP Lovecraft first player marker.

Just Unseen Forces as that’s the only one I have that isn’t a “replacement” (Gates). Gates will have its own in its box.

Oh, wow nice! Could you show us some more pictures or some more of the design or how you glued everything down? I'm trying to build an organizer for Cosmic Encounter but I haven't found a way to get good results yet.

Sure. I’m playing tonight so I’ll post then.

100% of the glue is hot glue.

Just glued each mating surface with hot glue. Because I used my Italian ruler (TM) and didnt measure shit except relative to the card depths and heights using the stacks as they sat, I had to add that little leg at the back.

The flat piece glued into the box holds the small card tray so it doesn’t flop about, and the stantions behind hold up the back tray so it’s supported on both sides.

I wanted to make it like monopoly banks, so it is easy to get the cards out.

Tools used:
Stanley Fat Max 25mm utility knife
Cutting Board
High temp hot glue and cheap dollar store gun
2 12x18 sheets of foam core board
Carpentry Speed Square
