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!
