Unsure if the retail version comes with one too. This was the deluxe edition ordered via KS.
Giving credit where credit is due. Never seen this before so it was a nice touch by Game Brewer/Meeplemaker.
The insert comes with removable trays (for player pieces/resources), was easy to construct (no glue), nice and sturdy and also very pretty given it was printed to match the box inlay. One con is that it can be difficult to remove stacks of tiles since there's not much clearance for your fingers to grip them.
I'm assuming this approach is much cheaper than GameTrayzZz and as a serial game organiser I hope this becomes an industry standard thing moving forward.
No more baggies 2022!!!
I got JoTL for Christmas, but I'm worried it's a counterfeit because of the poor punchboard quality. I tried punching out the first damage tokens and every one of the 20 that I did caught on the paper and tore somehow.
A few of them were only left with extra paper tagged onto the token. That's annoying, but I can deal with that. Some, however, tore the paper on the token. 5 tokens out of 20 punched so far have visible nicks or tears in the paper or the grey board was pulled apart a little.
Here's what the back of the Punchboard looks like: https://imgur.com/a/yG7lPcx It's honestly not terrible, but it's bad enough that I'm worried I have a counterfeit copy. 25% of the tokens received damage when they punched out, and 100% of them failed to punch out cleanly.
What was your experience with the punchboard tokens? Should I be worried about the quality of my copy, or are they all like this?
Hi everyone. I live in Australia and recently purchased a copy of Le Havre that came with the expansion cards. While punching out the tokens, I came to realise that half the boards were incorrectly printed.
I immediately notified the local game store I purchased it at abd the owner was really great and told me he was going to source the correct parts for me. The problem is its been over two months now and he said it's a tough one to fix with a lot of shipping being delayed atm.
Does anyone know what the best way to go about this? Should I just contact the publishers or manufacturers straight up? Does any one have a print and play version in the meantime?
I'm trying to find a unique gift for my brother who loves history, and I came across a WW1 punchboard. After doing research, I still don't understand what they were used for. Can someone please explain them to me?

Available here. There are new (at least to me) tidbits on the next Root factions, John Company 2nd Edition, and discussion of Oath and many other topics as well. I always enjoy interviews with Cole.
I recently bought the Sins of Regret PDF and it came with the punch board, but it doesn't name any of the characters.
Are the punchboards supposed to represent specific characters or do I just pick and choose as necessary?
I noticed when I opened my copy of the game that one of the token boards has some cutouts but doesn't have anything printed on them. This is board #8.
Could someone let me know if this is normal, or if I need to get in contact with the publisher for a replacement?
Edit: Thanks for the answers, everybody.

There are a few omissions that kind of surprised me here. Although the Honorable Mentions grabbed a couple that I thought would have been in the Top 10 most other places.
I finally took out my KS copy to look at it. Then I tried to punch out the castles, towers, etc. Got through half of one board trying to construct and put it back away. For such great presentation on other areas, the amount of fat-fingered time it takes to build the cardboard means it'll be a small chip-away every once in awhile until I can play it.
You know what'd be great and I might have paid for? Plastic figures for these things instead of the miniature armies. Anyone see any 3 party producers of plastics ships, towers, castles for this?
I always feel wasteful in tossing the punchboard sheets after opening my games, but they're fairly (universally?) meant to be thrown away once you have your components. In fact, the only game I can think of that ever gave me even an inkling of a reason to keep the sheets was Commissioned, as it had a fantastic rendering of the game's logo on one of the sheets.
So, am I missing a big trend somewhere in the boardgaming scene? Failing that, is there anything to do with them after punching? (Ideal end circumstance for me: punchboards would be able to be origami'd into box inserts/foamcore-style dividers.)

Anyone else have a similar issue with their second printing? The graphics are curling off of the cardboard. Opened the box and all the components were dry. It wasn't exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity. Will Cephalofair replace, or do I have to get crafty with a glue stick or something? https://imgur.com/a/AVKGE
