Title: What organization scheme is used by the included inserts?
Post by: phonological loop on May 22, 2018, 04:58:56 pm
I have the base game (2nd edition big box) and a few expansions. Included in each box is a paper organizer insert with the names of the cards on it. You stick the insert in the middle of the box and it tells you where to put each card.

The problem is that I don't understand the organization scheme used by the insert, which makes it a headache to set up games. What is the logic behind the insert? I ask so I can find cards more efficiently. (And why is it not simply in alphabetical order in each box?)

(Almost certainly this has been asked before, but I could not find an explanation using Google or the search feature on this forum. My apologies, and thanks in advance for the help.)

Assuming yours looks the same as this one?

The action cards are in alphabetical order. Coppers and Curses are in the middle presumably because they need a much bigger slot; and the insert is just easier to produce if the large section is in the middle. The other every-game cards are at the end; I think it would make more sense to put Gardens in with the action cards; as it's still just a Kingdom card.

Oh, I see now. Each expansion is indeed in alphabetical order (I was not looking very closely  :-[).

The big box was what primarily confused me, but it too is in alphabetical order by set. I was confused because I have not learned to distinguish between base set and Intrigue cards (since I got them all at once, in one box).

I'm not usually this much of an idiot, I swear.
