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!

Running with the Bulls = Dice Plinko

Running with the Bulls board game

As you might imagine, the theme of Running with the Bulls hearkens to the annual Running of the Bulls festival in Pamplona, Spain where bulls are let loose to run through the town streets.

In the game Running with the Bulls, players have a team of Runners (dice) that scramble through the streets of El Toro trying not to get trampled by the Bulls (big red dice) and trying to end up in favorable locations at the end of town.

The game is played over 3 “Days” (rounds) and the same process is followed each round. The player with the most points after 3 rounds is the winner.

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.

 

The Joke’s On You!

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.

But when we open our new game box, it’s mostly empty space.

What a disappointment!

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