Insert compatible with Great Western Trail (Second Edition)®, including the Rails to the North (Second Edition)® expansion. 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 act as a lid on top of the trays.
This image shows the top layer of trays. Note that the new board that comes with the expansion causes some lid lift, see below.
With the top layer removed, you can see underneath the remaining player trays, and other trays. Note the three worker, hazard and outlaw tile bags are stored in the space provided on the right hand side of the box.
The player trays are designed to store separately each player colour's cards, tiles, and pieces. There is space for the additional building tile and branchlet pieces from the Rails to the North® expansion. The player count tiles are stored under the wooden player pieces.
The insert includes two trays for cards to store the general cards in the game, all of which can be sleeved. There is one tray for the player and market cattle cards, and one tray for the objective and solo mode cards.
These are the remaining trays from the insert. Again there is space for all the simmental cattle cards to be sleeved.
When packing the box, first place the rule books on top of the trays. Next place the main game board, followed by the score pad, simmental board, player boards and their extensions. Lastly place the expansion board and solo board on top. This more than fully fills the box and allows for vertical storage of the game.
The new board that comes with the expansion will cause lid lift of 12 mm. If you don't have the expansion there is no lid lift, and the game and insert will fully fill the box meaning you can still store the game vertically.
Note: Insert designed for games with external box dimensions of 29.7 x 29.7 x 7.5 cm. Insert is also compatible with Great Western Trail: Argentina®. We have a separate design for the first edition of the game:FS Insert: Great Western Trail + Rails to the North.
