Recently I was given the opportunity to check out a new product from Go7Gaming. That product was the ZGH -003 Storage Solution for the Zombicide: Green Horde – No Rest for the Wicked Box from CMON. The insert came in a flat rate shipping package. Inside there were several laser cut wooden sheets wrapped together in a large ziplock bag with some full color instructions explaining how everything should be put together. After taking out the the sheets from the package, I read through the instructions and was then ready to assemble the product.
Now then, let me explain exactly what this product is and what it does. First off, this is an insert for the expansion for Zombicide: Green Horde but it will also hold lots of extra materials. Once it’s been assembled, the insert makes it possible to keep all of the different miniatures, cards and tokens that come with the game separate. For me, I’ve added the miniatures from Wulfsburg, along with the equipment and zombie cards that go with it. The insert looks really great when it’s finished. It even comes with some tags so that you can label each section for what’s inside. Of course you’ll be able to see a bit more about that a little later. At this time, let’s go ahead and cover what all you get and the basic instruction on how to assemble this insert. We’ll start off by separating out all the different wooden sheets. As you can see, there’s a lot of sheets of wood to be assembled. Each piece is cut so that you can easily punch them out from the main sheet that they’re attached to.
If you’ve read any of my reviews for Go7Gaming inserts, you already know that glue is pretty much a staple for building these things. It’s not an absolute necessity as you can use other things like tape, but it’s definitely the best option. With this review I won’t be telling you each time when to add glue to your pieces. Just be aware that if there are 2 pieces being put together, you’ll want to apply glue between them both. With that said, let’s begin the assembling process starting with the large mini tray.
To build this tray you will start off by placing the base down on the table. You will then need to connect the left side outer wall and the inner wall together with the base. Next you will attach the inner wall to the long outer wall and connect it to the base as well. From there you will connect the 2 outer walls at the top and bottom of the base, attaching them to the sides and base. Finally you will attach the last outer wall and connect it to the base, inner wall and outer wall. Once you’re finished, it should look something like this.
After you’ve let everything dry, you’ll be able to place dividers and splitters into this tray to make room for individual storage of minis. When finished with this, you may have something that looks like this.
Once you’ve finished with the large mini tray, you’ll need to move on to the base insert. This holds the bulk of the items that come with the expansion and will also provide extra room for other pieces as well. As with the previous tray, you’ll need to start by placing the base down on your table, making sure to align your holes in the proper direction, as shown on the instructions. You’ll then attach the inner divider wall to the inner wall. You’ll then need to connect that wall to the larger inner wall. The right side tabs of the other 2 inner walls will be connected to this larger inner wall, noting the arrangement on the tops of these. This whole structure is then connected to the base, which should look like this once attached.
After you’ve finished with all that, you’ll start adding the outer walls, beginning with the bottom wall, attaching it to the base and the inner divider walls. Next you’ll attach the left outer wall to the base and inner walls, followed by the top outer wall and lastly the right outer wall. What you should end up with should look like this.
With all that assembled, you’ll insert the smaller dividers near the bottom and the larger dividers near the top, like so.
Once all that’s done, you’re finished. You can then decide what goes where and place the appropriate name tabs as you see fit. That completes the assembly process for this insert.
At this point, I would normally explain how the different components of the game look. However since this is an organizer and not a game, I’ll describe the packing and insert instead. Everything came prepackaged in a flat rate shipping box. Since I received the bundle of all 4 organizers for Zombicide Green Horde, my shipping box was splitting open mostly due to the weight. Inside the box, everything was for this insert was placed inside a large zip lock style bag with all the wooden pieces shrink wrapped together. Everything looked very nice and there were no problems with anything. The wooden sheets are nice and thick and are very easy to punch out the different pieces. If you decided to use glue or tape, you’ll need to supply your own as the organizer does not come with any included. Assembling the product was fairly simple, and didn’t take that long to finish. Overall the materials look great and everything is strong and durable. I’m very pleased with every aspect of the materials.

At this time, I would normally be explaining the rulebook of the game. Instead, I’ll cover the instructions that came with the insert. The instructions came on two sheets of double sided paper. There was a detailed process that walks you through each step of assembling the insert. There are plenty of pictures to help you see exactly what piece goes where when assembling. Everything is explained very well and I didn’t find it difficult to figure out at all. Everything is well written and looks good. One thing that was unclear was just what all I should place inside this organizer. I did turn to the website to get some ideas and basically waited till I had everything put together and stored to see where I’d need to put the extra miniatures and cards that I left over. That’s why I chose to place the miniatures from Wulfsburg in this box, along with the smaller euro cards. I felt this was an appropriate place to keep these separate from the base game. Overall, I’m pleased with the instructions.

For this section, I normally would be explaining how the game played and my thoughts and feelings on it. However since this is a product review, I’ll give my thoughts on the assembly process as well as anything that I feel is important to note. It didn’t take a long time to put everything together here. After all, it was only a large mini tray and the base insert. As a matter of fact, this was probably the easiest of the 4 inserts that I assembled. Figuring out where everything went was a bit challenging. Thankfully I was able to look on the website to get a good idea of what went where. Just like with all Go7Gaming inserts, this one also is a bit loose around the joints and connections so be aware that you’ll need some glue or something to hold it all together. Once I got everything together I realized that I still have a lot more room for a lot more pieces. Not sure what all else I can or will place in there but I’m sure something will come up. For now, there’s just a lot of extra dead space, that’s even after all the add ons and extras that I got with the game and expansions. I almost wonder if I’d be able to just move the stuff in this box to one or more of the others and would be able to completely eliminate this box. Not sure, but will think about no doubt. In any event, if you only had the core game and the No Rest for the Wicked expansion, I’m sure this insert would be a big help. As it is, I added the stuff from my Wulfsburg box into this one to free up at least one more box. May try to reconfigure some things and see what I can come up with. Either way, the box is stronger now and a bit heavier to boot. Overall, I think this one is nice and it holds everything together quite well. I would recommend this to anyone that owns the expansion and the base game. Just be aware that you may have more free space than you know what to do with.

The Go7Gaming ZGH-003 Storage Solution for the Zombicide: Green Horde – No Rest for the Wicked Box is a great way to get your game organized, especially if you have a lot of extra pieces from the Kickstarter. It has plenty of room for all the pieces from the No Rest for the Wicked expansion, as well as being able to store lots more, as you can see from my pictures. The materials are very good and hold everything in a well organized way. The only problems is determining where to put everything and what to do with all the extra empty space. I will say that the website was helpful at determining where each piece from the expansion went. My own ideas led to filling in a bit more of the box. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow. The insert has a ton of room…possibly too much room. Even so, it looks great and fits everything in the box really well. I would recommend this for owners of the No Rest for the Wicked expansion, especially if you have a lot of extra stuff that you need to store. Overall this is a nice insert that does it’s job.
