My review about the insert from Folded Space for Quacks of Quedlinburg
The team from Folded Space bring you board game inserts that are affordable, lightweight and add improved game play and storage to your favourite games! They regularly add new inserts to their collection.
This insert is made for Quacks of Quedlinburg and the expansions;
- The Herb Witches
- The Alchemists
I don't own the expanion The Herb Witches but only the last expansion The Alchemists.
Quacks of Quedlinburg is a huge favorite game with us and really comes to the table with regularly. The only thing that always bothered me was putting everything in the bags and then sorting out the ingredients again. When I received the expansion The Alchemists, it had to be put in the same box but that made it even more messier.
Because of the Folded Space insert for the base game and both expansions, setting up Quacks is really a treat. Everything is neatly contained in the various containers, the ingredients can even be stored separately so that the game is on the table within seconds. The cards are all in the right boxes, both the expansions and the base game. This also makes it easy to choose whether to play with or without expansion(s).
The trays for the ingredients, there are a few small and a few bigger trays
The trays for the different cards, these are for the cards belong with the base game and for the expansion The Alchemists.
The different trays for the the players, in each tray you place the starting
ingredients so you can start quicly.

My Conclusion & final rating:
Quality: The quality of the foam sheets are great, in around 30 minutes your insert is completely ready to use them into your game box. But beware, make sure everything is properly dried. Their inserts are made from sheets of Evacore - a memory foam to which quality printed card is laminated to add rigidity. The great thing about these inserts is that they add almost nothing in terms of weight. Most inserts are only a few 100 grams extra and you don't really notice anything.
I used wood glue for this myself but you can also use standard hobby glue for this. The most important thing is that everything is secure. As soon as you push the necessary parts out of the sheets, you can start gluing them. I think the quality is really good. It feels sturdy and you can use it over and over again, e.g. some games you don't even need other trays anymore.
Instructions: The instructions that come with it are very clear, it says exactly which sheet you need which parts from to assemble the trays. But if for any reason you have lost them, they can all be found online on the website of Folded Space.
How to use it: These inserts are really made for the specific games you buy them for though. Of course you can put a tray in another box but because everything is made with care for the specific game you are buying this insert for. Precisely because it is for the game you buy it for it has a huge added value, I think, you can set up the game tremendously fast because of this.
The game components are together in the right trays. Some games have no insert at all or no suitable insert and I am really in favor of this type of insert.
If you need some extra help on how to assemble the trays you can find a very well instruction on https://www.foldedspace.net/assembly
My rating for this insert is a 8 out of 10 dice. The rating that I have given in this small review has mainly to do with how useful the insert is to me personally. The quality of the inserts are top notch, good weight and the box hardly gets heavier because of these inserts.
I want to thank Folded Space for letting me review these inserts and to let me use them for my games. If you're interested after seeing my review and pictures then go to their website and order these inserts!
