Karuba’s game insert even speeds up play

Insert Here Karuba game insert

It’s time to put another game insert from Insert Here to the test.

You may already know we’re fans of foam core game inserts. Not only do they keep the game components nicely organized, they’re also very light. So there’s hardly any added weight to the game box.

It’s even better when the game insert itself helps the game function more smoothly.

Well, that’s what Rob Searing (Insert Here) has done with the custom game insert for Karuba!

Level-up your parenting skills

Are you constantly leveling up your parenting skills?

Get your game boxes in order

Insert Here game insert Scoville

Our experience with Insert Here game inserts have been fantastic.

One of the things we love the most about them is how light they are. Since they’re made of foam core material, they don’t add any weight to the game itself. And when you’re talking about a game with tons of components, no additional weight is a great thing.

Another element we love across the board with all their inserts is how quick it makes both game set up and take down.

Machi Koro card game inside

It’s like an April Fool’s joke on unsuspecting families.

We see an enticing board game sitting on the shelf and think of the great stuff packed inside.

What a disappointment!

Sure the game may be very fun to play, but we still carry a feeling of being tricked.
