Village Insert (FS-VIL) - Folded Space
Note: Insert designed for game with external box dimensions of 29.5 x 29.5 x 7.0 cm.
Insert compatible with Village®, and the Village Inn® & Village Port® expansions. The design provides both efficient storage and improved game play. Many of the trays can be utilised during the game, and they greatly aid set-up and clear-away times. The rules and boards act as a lid on top of the trays.
Here you can see the top layer of trays. Note the space left between the trays at the bottom for the black and green bags that come with the game.
With the top layer removed you can see the second layer of trays underneath. Note that in the top right corner the player farmyard boards act as lids on tray beneath. The smaller building overlays (the brewery and graveyard tiles) that come with the expansions are also stored here.
With the farmyards and other building overlays removed you can see the last two token trays in the top right corner.
You can also see on the right hand side next to the two card trays the ship tiles stored on their side in a slot for them.
This is a close-up image of the player trays. Each player colour is in a separate tray, with space for all five player piece sets. When setting up the game players simply take their colour tray and use it in-game to store their pieces next to their farmyard.
Here you can see the two tray for the goods tiles. Each is made to be longer and thin, so that they can be placed on the board next to the crafts section of the board during the game.
These are the trays for the remaining tokens. Again all are designed to be able to be placed around the board in easy access of all players during game play.
Here are the game cards trays. One for the playing-card sized cards, all of which can be sleeved with quality sleeves (FFG sleeves used in testing). The other tray is for the setup tiles.
As mentioned above all the trays can be used during the game to organise the components and make access by all players easy.
At the bottom of the image here you can see the recess left for the sea travel board and the inn tile. The card trays are higher at one end so as to stop these boards moving around when the game is transported or stored vertically.
Finally the board and game rules go on top, filling completely the box space. The lid closes flush over everything and allows for vertical storage.
This product consists of a flat-pack of 4 Evacore sheets. The trays require assembly, which is quick and fun, using ordinary PVA glue. Detailed instructions are included in the package.
