I have often seen people ask for ideas on how to store or organize their games and pieces, and I have seen some great replies, as well as custom ideas in game image galleries. I'd like to bring some of those creative storage and organization ideas to one place.

I also welcome ideas that haven't found an application yet. We have seen some ideas while browsing stores such as muffin tins, or a "pull-apart cake pan" we saw at Walmart that had great curved wells. We find some things in the silverware-storage aisle that have a lot of potential.

Please click the images to give the creators thumbs, as you are so moved

Using a box instead of the counter tray that is included:


The counter tray has two problems for me:
1. The counters tend to jump out of it when pressing the bottom of a compartment.
2. The lid does not stay open by itself.

GMT counter trays are too large to fit inside the game box, but I found this flat plastic box at a hobby store which fits perfectly.

This should work for all CCGs/CTGs.

We play with pre-designed decks. We chose two decks at random and play away. The decks get little adjustments as time goes by.

We store all our decks in these nifty boxes. The small box is a Holiday gift from one of our consultants (it used to have chocolate or some such,) and the large box is actually a Harry Potter 50 pack box.



The decks are held together with strips of paper held by tape.
When they wear out, I grab the junk mail and make more.

Quick and cheap.

RftG maybe not be the game most crying out for a neat storage solution, but fitting everything in neatly into one box after 3 expansions was getting a little tricky. My wife came up with the idea of cutting the insert of the original box so it made 3 separate areas. The middle one is perfect for holding the cards and goal tiles, with other bits and pieces distributed to the left and right (we have the role cards and the military strength trackers int he left and VP chits, Prestige points and solo game stuff in the right side (each bagged for convenience).



I like how it holds everything neatly but retains the look of the original box.

My little Race box. All the expansions (including the solo player bits) crammed into a wooden box that is narrower and shorter (but a bit deeper) than the original box. Of all the boxes I've done, this one has probably been the most successful in terms of presentation, organsation and utility.
