Broken Token Organizer, Take 3

Unsure if people are aware, but Broken Token came out with their 3rd iteration of the PACG organizer recently. I assembled mine last night and am predominantly pleased with it over the previous iteration. It's gota nice wave theme that fits nicely with the S&S set I'm sleeving.

It's a tighter fit than the last version, which solves the biggest problem I had with the last one---that the alleys ended up too wide for the dividers. It was, in fact, so tight that I could not get one of the sides on. But that ended up fine because the dividers still fit tightly.

The big selling point they've added is that you can trim off the edges to fit a smaller box, if you wish. This is not a problem I have had, but if anyone else has, know that this issue has been solved as well.

I assembled mine Sunday evening, and have to agree that it's the best yet. For anyone that plays a lot of PACG, you SHOULD be buying these organizers.


lol thought you were on the 3rd ordered organizer and it was broken as well.

Definitely not this. Just wanted to let everyone know there was a newer and better version available. :-)


Now you dont dump your first and second edition organizers, just to get the 3rd edition one, right?

Silver Crusade

Nah, I'll hold onto my 2 second edition ones for now. Just wanted to let people know these existed

Are there any indications on the package which version you have? I just ordered one on Amazon yesterday....so when it comes i would like to see what "version" i got. I might return it and get the 3rd version if i can.

Thrump, they were not available on Amazon for a while (I had recently looked). I didn't know anything about the new version but my guess is that they stopped listing on Amazon while they waited to get the newer version in stock. So you will probably end up getting the new version if you ordered through Broken Token via Amazon.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Nice, i did get it through Broken Token on Amazon. They only had one left. I was trying to get 3.

You can tell it's the 3rd one by the wavy pattern on the dividers, a la the one in the link above. The 2nd one just had scoops.


I am very happy with the 2nd version. The organizer fit in all german and english versions of my games. No problem at all. Third edition is just a little bit more stylish imo.

I have several of both 1st and 2nd version. They both work fine at home, but when I started taking them to OP, they got turned on their side (to fit in my bag) and bumped around (traveling in the car) and both versions then had issues with the removable dividers popping out of the slot.

Last week someone had the 3rd version and the 'shoulders' on the new dividers are wider (in addition to the style change). This means you can't place two dividers in the same position in adjacent rows, but they are also a whole lot less likely to pop out now.

So I simply ordered two sets of the new dividers - extra dividers for pacg organizer - for each of my existing organizer inserts. This works like a charm, my 1st and 2nd edition organizers are just as good as the new one as far as the dividers no longer popping out.

I definitely had the problem with the alleys being too wide for the dividers, which lead to much cursing on my part. However, before I upgrade to 3rd Ed, I'm'a see if maybe my sets will have a permanent home in various Pathfinder Adventure Chests.

On a side note, my fiancée just picked up her own Skull and Shackles (why do so many people pluralize "Skull"?) set and commented on how feather-light it felt. I pointed out it didn't have five more adventures, a Character Add-on deck, and sleeves in it yet.

Yeah, a full sleeved set plus the insert is definitely starting to weigh enough to be classified as an improvised weapon. Watch out for barbarians.

I'm playing Brielle in SotS. The things she'll do with a caltrop bead... (*shudder*)

Heya, this is Greg from The Broken Token. I just wanted to chime in and confirm the changes in the last version.

We added the break-off tabs so the organizer will fit snug in all the boxes. The Rise of the Runelords box is what the original organizer was based on and they increased the size of the box slightly with Skull & Shackles and beyond.

Added decorative flair to the insert and dividers.

Added a fixed divider wall that spans across all card rows. This helps keep those long walls from flexing under the weight of the cards.

Increased the width of the divider tabs. As you guys already noticed, it was a trade-off between sharing slots with two dividers or having them slip out. The slipping was a major annoyance and felt this would be a welcome change.

Thanks again for all your support and feel free to write us with any complaints or suggestions. We'll never leave you unhappy with one of our products!

All the best,
Greg


Greg,

Is the organizer also available in a deluxe black walnut version?

Ahhhh... Suddenly it all makes sense! I didn't know about the different box-sizes, and the first set I put the BT organizer in was Wrath of the Righteous, and I had no end of trouble. Thank you, Greg, for the info!

Actually, that one is only available to US distributors. I love my deluxe in my S&S box.

Oh, come on ... there was no promo card. That's just teasing MyFly.

You're right - there isn't one promo card. There are five of them.


But seriously, though... 8>)

How have people found that fixed divider wall? I rather like being able to space my sections as much or as little as I please, and wonder if I'll find the fixed wall irksome.

Silver Crusade

The fixed wall is a little annoying, but not nearly so annoying as having my dividers fall out. I can make it work.


The fixed dividers arent compatible with a five promo card set.
This sucks ...


Thank you for sharing the news Eliandra.

I've got another v2 organizer lined up for Mummy's Mask.

I solved the ally width problem by shimming some of the dividers using the scrap wood from the Broken Token insert. It works pretty well and it solve almost all of my problems with dividers coming loose. I'll see how well the wood glue holds up over time.
