Overkilled Storage- Caverna

When I first opened Caverna, I was taken aback by how much stuff there was in the box.

Caverna is the successor to the famous board game Agricola, and I prefer it immensely. For ease of play, I have kept the bits organised in a separate tackle box. I recently heard about Overkilled Storage, an Australian company that makes MDF board game inserts. Similar overseas companies have crippling shipping costs, so I gave Overkilled Storage a go.

I received a well protected package with each subassembly separately shrink-wrapped*, along with a set of colour instructions. Assembly took about an hour with the telly on in the background. The parts were a perfect effortless fit.
Completed trays- note the writing in the trays!

Bottom layer

... with cardboard token tray

and wooden bits...

Rules and player boards on top

Fits perfectly in the box.

There is a main tray which is a tight fit in the game box. All the bits have a receptacle tray, but space is still so tight the corn and wood ‘vegemeeples’ do need a little organising to ensure the next layer sits nicely. The player boards sit on top, with the entire game sitting neatly in the original box. It can be stored vertically without any bits falling out of their trays.

Recommended. And now I’ve freed up a tackle box!

*which seals in that lovely smell


  1. I played this once at a convention and the owner of the game had the same (or very similar!) organizers - seems like a "MUST HAVE" for the game. It was a lot of fun to play, but I've been resisting the urge to pick up Caverna because I already have too many games that I can't seem to find the time to play... and I play a LOT of games!

  2. Mmmmmmm, delicious board game luxuriousness!
