Can anyone recommend a case for storing the cards?
Are those sold for the card game Cards Against Humanity ok?
Cheers.

The Broken Token has some nice cases sized for LCGs. Personally I'll be using a binder for player cards and probably baggies for the others (right now, at least).

Like all the newer FFG LCG, this game is coming out in a 12"x12"x3" box. There are inserts for this size but be aware your collection is almost certainly going to outgrow it in a very short while.

I would recommend the Hobby Lobby Artist Case with vertical insert (Broken Token or otherwise).

You highlighted the Euro-Card organizer. Did you mean to? Not saying you are wrong, I do not know the difference between the two. I was looking at this one:

Back to the "In original box" style inserts. If you go that route, you want this insert:

The other option was for the older style boxes that came with games like Netrunner and LotR. How quickly you run out of room is going to largely depend on a few things.
1. How many Cores do you plan on getting? (If two, get two inserts and store your unneeded cards in a separate deck box) This will give you a good amount of storage for maybe 3-4 cycles (unsleeved)
2. Are you a sleever? If you are in the sleeve everything camp, you should just get the hobby lobby case in my opinion. Sleeves eat up storage space fast.

On another note, there are a few other companies that do this stuff. I know some people like go7gaming. I do not have any experience with them, but I have been a huge fan of the Broken Token products I have used.

Where are you getting the 3" dimension? Amazon shows it as 2" and the images seem to show the shallower box. I don't see anything on the FFG site. I've been asking about this all over BGG and no one responds. If it's the 3" box, I'll go ahead and get the organizer, but I've not seen any proof at all of that.

I'm planning on bagging the tokens in clear plastic bags, and a linen Cthulhu bag for the test tokens to be randomly drawn.
But my question was about that storage case. Given that the CAH cards are 6x9 cm, whereas FFG's for this game are 6.3x8.8 cm, is the case a good fit?

I don't know what size CAH cards are, sorry. One other thing to consider is organization. Most of the CAH organizers that I have seen are kind of just big boxes to dump a bunch of cards in. If you want dividers and organization (or sleeves) I think there are better solutions.

Does the standard organizer hold sleeved cards nicely?

On BGG Version list, it's written: "11.80 x 11.80 x 3.00 inches".

I hope it's correct, because I ordered two inserts for this size :|

However, on this picture:



It seems the size is 2'' thick.

Anselmo, as a Brit you could check out this guy: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/opticalpower/game-store...

He's currently finishing his kickstarter but is apparently going to set up a website selling game boxes. They're pretty good value.

It is in the same size box as Conquest and Game of Thrones, which is FFG's new standard size for LCG coresets. So, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is definitely 2", not 3".

You'll just have to dig out some of those original Arkham Horror big box expansions

This is correct, it is the exact same size as my Conquest boxes.
