Mission: Red Planet: The Insert
Mission: Red Planet has the only insert that I have ever discarded. I'm not sure what game it was made for. This game is much better suited for an Alhambra-sized box, or perhaps even smaller. So now you have a box with a bunch of stuff floating all around inside. Yuck:
This is especially bad for the boards since they are so tiny:
Step 1: create 4 rectangular cardboard tubes--2 long, and 2 shorter with flaps sticking out:
Arrange them into the box like so. Notice how the 2 ends with flaps make it so that none of these can move:
Step 2: cut triangular shapes into each side a half inch down, forming shelves. Note how everything still fits in the smaller space with room to burn:
The boards now fit onto these shelves and are flush with the top of the box. Very little movement is possible:
I'm on a roll. I may try to fix my copy of Euphrates & Tigris tomorrow.
