Clans of Caledonia Insert V2
Note: Insert designed for game with external box dimensions of 22.4 x 31.1 x 5.0 cm. Insert compatible with Clans of Caledonia®. 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.
The revised design now works with both the original edition and revised edition of the game, with space for either sized player board. With the top layer removed you can see the second layer of trays underneath. Each clan has it's own tray for its coloured components. Each player will take a tray with his chosen colour of clan pieces at the start of the game. The goods tokens each have separate slots to give easy access during the game.There is one long tray for the export contracts. There are two trays for the coins, a tray for the clan tiles, and a tray for the port bonus tiles, scoring tiles, and other game pieces. The coin trays work equally well with either the card coins from the base game or the alternative metal coins. As mentioned above many of the trays can be used during the game to organise the components and make access by all players easy. The game boards need to be placed in the box in the following sequence. First go the player boards in a recess on the right hand side of the insert. Then go the rules, followed by the market and export boards. The map boards and MacDonald tile go last, with the player aids and score sheet next to them. this fills the box to the top, and with the lid closed flush the box can be stored vertically. The insert design also works with the original edition of the game, where the player boards are narrower being only 10 cm wide. When used with this edition the long export contract tray is assembled differently and is placed the other way round in the box as shown below. This leaves a narrower recess for the smaller player boards. The two alternative methods of assembling the export contract tray can be seen here. The top tray in the image is for the older edition of the game, and the lower one is for the current edition. This product consists of a flat-pack of 3 Evacore sheets. The trays require assembly, which is quick and fun, using ordinary PVA glue. Detailed instructions are included in the package.
