Codenames Organizer from The Broken Token Review

In my household, space is at a premium. When I found out that the Codenames Organizer from The Broken Token would hold the base game, the Deep Undercover variant, and Codenames: Pictures, it was a no-brainer to purchase.

Like other inserts from The Broken Token, wood glue is required to complete the assembly. I also use a rubber mallet to ensure the pieces fit flush but that’s not really a necessity. Assembly was a breeze.

Once completed, the insert fits all cards neatly into the organizer. I was able to keep all of Deep Undercover sequestered from the base game in its own section which is helpful as that has cards that not everyone wants to play with. It will not fit sleeved cards as the spaces are a little tight and the oversized cards, for Codenames: Pictures and the tiles for the spies and civilians won’t necessarily fit snug and securely like the other cards. I only ever noticed the cards getting loose when traveling but it hasn’t seemed to cause any damage whatsoever. Putting all the expansions and base game in this insert will make the box quite hefty but nothing that should make transporting this game difficult.

All three games condense into one box and make storage and traveling a breeze. I also see no reason why Codenames: Duet (or other versions, such as Marvel or Disney) wouldn’t slot into one of these sections either in place of any expansion or the base game. The size of the completed insert would fit each and every box.

The only negative I have about the insert is that with each section filled, there’s no place for the sand timer to go. I don’t have a major problem with this as we rarely if ever use the timer and if we do need one, it’s 2020 and there are twenty devices in my home that can act as a timer for me.

Overall, I highly recommend this insert and will probably buy a second one. It condenses three boxes into one and allows the perfect amount of mixing and matching for the game that I want. It’s a much superior storage solution than just having loose cards or cards in bags.
