    Absolutely fantastic. Blew away my expectations with quality.
    I’ve purchased game inserts from 3 other companies (g7g, tbt, & mr), and this is by far my favorite insert, both for assembly effort and appearance of the final product.

    The only downside is that the words on the side of the inserts aren’t really legible unless you try pretty hard, but they aren’t ~really~ necessary to use the insert, and I don’t believe the competitors have any, so I’m not counting this against them.

    Assembly does require glue, but I far prefer that to hammering away at my pieces for hours. (It annoys my neighbors in the apartment building.)
    Required no sanding, no incredible amounts of effort to remove from the runners.

    Final note:
    The confirmation emails and such are pretty bad with information. It’s unclear whether or not your product is being cut, shipped, etc for a while. The first email of “payment received” doesn’t really say anything. Just wait at most 2 weeks, and you should receive an email saying “product has shipped” or something.

    Superb product. The engineering of the insert is a Tetris-like marvel, with all the components fitting neatly and precisely in the original Mage Knight game box. It really does hold the original game as well as all the expansions, and I sleeve my cards, too. The insert greatly reduces game set-up time.

    Construction is straightforward with clear directions. if you don’t like building things, you might be put off a bit by the effort required. Trust me, you will find that it is time well spent. The finished product is both functional and gorgeous to look at. Just buy it already!

    I gotta say, *everything* about this insert impressed me. While it took quite some time to build, the end-product was *well* worth it!

    Thematic touches on all of the deck holders, along with very clear labels on each section, make finding cards very easy and look great sitting out on your table next to the game’s components. Mage Knight involves a lot of shuffling, and yet the base-game’s box is completely incompatible with a sleeved copy of the game… there just isn’t enough room! The Daedalus insert solves the sleeved-card-storage problem effectively.

    As for the game’s other components, this quick-start does even more. I was very pleasantly surprised with how well the enemy tokens are presented (although the hexagonal Ruins tokens have a very hard time actually fitting in their designated pace… it’s a design oversight that does little-to-nothing to hold the product back, but still worth mentioning). The box for the character minis is also sturdy enough to keep them from being damaged.

    Speaking of the characters, each one has a little “coffin” where their level-up tokens and various other character-specific chits are kept, and these coffins do a *great* job of speeding up the game’s set up. They’re the highlight of this product, for me, as they’re good at their job, as well as being very fun to handle or hand to a player. If you have *all* the expansion characters (Wolfhawk, Krang, and Bravelar) then you’ll have to store one of them in a not-so-coffiny space next to General Volkare’s big round token, which is a shame, but since the every-expansion-ever version of the game has a prime-number of total characters, it’s hard to imagine an elegant solution for storing them all. Besides, the expansion that includes Bravelar seems to be universally un-loved by the Mage Knight community, and Krang is almost impossible to find; this means you’re likely to have a maximum of six characters anyways, either by necessity or because no one actually bought Shades of Tezla 😛

    Oh, and the map-tiles holder is cool as hell, too! This expansion comes with a number of trays (such as this one) which you can simply set onto the table and *boom*, you’re done with that stage of setup.

    Overall, I’m very happy with this product: It stores *all* of Mage Knight in the original box, it protects the damage-able components, it looks beautiful as hell when sitting next to the game pieces, and it greatly speeds up setup and teardown of this very-lengthy game. While I can’t claim it’s *perfect*, it’s as close to perfect as any reasonable person can ask for, and it accomplishes its objectives far better than the Broken Token alternative. I’m *very* happy with this thing, my friends are jealous, and I’m happy to recommend it to anyone who asks. This thing is top-tier.

    This insert is easily the best one in my collection. At first I was a little disappointed that I HAD to glue all of the pieces together. I was hoping I could get away with just building the trays and they would be “good enough” without using glue (similar to some BrokenToken inserts). Now that I did it and have played 3-4 times, I could not be happier with this purchase. Fantastic insert and 100% worth it!

    Mage Knight is my favorite game and I wanted to deck my copy out with something beautiful and functional. I was horrified to see I was going to have a massive craft project on my hands. But I discovered very quickly that I rather enjoyed assembling and gluing. Now I find myself excited to play just to use the inserts. Could not be happier.

    Well made and absolutely gorgeous. I always thought “who needs inserts?” But now I want everything to have an insert!!! It did take 3 hours to put it all together, but I’m very meticulous. It was very easy to do with the instruction guide.

    The original reason I got it for Mage Knight was to reduce set up time. MK is a long enough game as it is, and set up just makes it worse. This insert not only solves set up, but gives everything a nice place to play pieces out of instead of dumping them on the table. Highly reccomend it.

    I had just ordered an insert from another company when a friend of mine showed me this insert for his Mage Knight. I was blown away and immediately ordered this. The assembly was simple and it stores everything I have for Mage Knight. It’s beautiful and really makes setup/storage easier. I also just like showing off the insert to my other friends. It is by far the best game insert I have ever bought.

    Fabulous insert, looks wonderful and is really functional too!! 🙂 I am not a particularly “handy” person, but constructed it myself with no problems at all. I found myself taking Mage Knight out just to check out the cool component storage. But it, really does help with set up and clean up time immensely, and makes Mage Knight so much more likely to hit the table again!! 🙂 Thanks Daedalus!! 🙂

    Wow. The amount to which this thematic, elegant, functional, and cleverly designed insert improves Mage Knight cannot be expressed in words. It is no longer gameplay, it is now an experience. Purchasing this insert is one of the nicest things I’ve done for myself all year.

    If you love Mage Knight, get this!

    This is a great insert that will take this great game to new heights. With room for all three expansions (sleeved with Ultra Pro) this insert fits snugly in the game box. This means that this insert handles transportation and vertical storage quite well!

    When it comes to looks this insert is pure eye-candy. From the text and etching on the card trays to the map tile holder this insert looks awesome!

    There’s some construction involved and if your’e not the handy kind you might want to check out the pre-constructerd option.

    Very impressed by this insert. First one I bought, basically because setup time was taking away half the fun for me. The quality of the insert is great, great look with the dark brown colouring! Small note: while putting it together, your hands may get stained. All components fit nicely, room to spare even here and there. The lid even closes just fine for me (but it is a snug fit, definitely no room for additional paperwork). The only thing difficult to incorporate is the Shades of Tezla expansion (because of the large amount of extra tokens). However, my advise would be to not get that expansion at all (due to the many manufacturing issues of the components), in which case this will suit your needs perfectly.
    All in all, a big must have, cannot go wrong with this.
    Also, fast and relatively cheap delivery (I live in Belgium, importing from the US is a very expensive hobby), with a personal note from Daedalus.
    A feel good experience all the way, keep up the good work!

    I have a few inserts for my games, but this one is easily the best one. Every piece is well made and looks great. It can fit Mage Knight with all of its expansions, as well as sleeved cards. The components all interlock for a good snug fit in the box (although with all of the manuals it does raise the lid slightly), and a good portion of the pieces can simply be set right on the table and used for play. The enemy token holder is especially nice, removing the need to stack the enemy tokens at all. This is a fantastic insert and I look forward to whatever else Daedalus can come up with.
