FS-GLOJAWv2 Insert

The insert of Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion ensures that you can pack everything properly for a game. Whereas in the standard box there is an insert that is not really suitable in our opinion, because, among other things, you have quite a lot of pouches and have to constantly search for the right monsters for the particular scenario. The small insert just fits the small game pieces but everything else unfortunately does not.

And again Folded Space is here to the rescue, with a colored insert which makes it even more fun to adventure in Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion.

So yes, everything can be better then just random plastic bags but we really like these inserts from Folded Space. This one colored and looks so great on the table.

My Conclusion & final rating:

Quality: The quality of the foam sheets are great, in around 20 minutes your insert is completely ready to use them into your game box. But beware, make sure everything is properly dried. Their inserts are made from sheets of Evacore – a memory foam to which quality printed card is laminated to add rigidity. The great thing about these inserts is that they add almost nothing in terms of weight. Most inserts are only a few 100 grams extra and you don’t really notice anything.

We used wood glue for this but you can also use standard hobby glue for this. The most important thing is that everything is secure. As soon as you push the necessary parts out of the sheets, you can start gluing them. We think the quality is really good. It feels sturdy and you can use it over and over again, e.g. some games you don’t even need other trays anymore. 

Instructions: The instructions that come with it are very clear, it says exactly which sheet you need which parts from to assemble the trays. But if for any reason you have lost them, they can all be found online on the website of Folded Space.

How to use it:
 These inserts are really made for the specific games you buy them for though. Of course you can put a tray in another box but because everything is made with care for the specific game you are buying this insert for. Precisely because it is for the game you buy it for it has a huge added value, we think, you can set up the game tremendously fast because of this.

The game components are together in the right trays. Some games have no insert at all or no suitable insert and we’re really in favor of this type of insert.

If you need some extra help on how to assemble the trays you can find a very well instruction on
