I have been looking at getting a Plano box to help store all the bits. Does anyone have a recommendation on which one to get that stores all the bits and fits well inside the box with all the game boards? Thanks.

I say get bead stackers instead.

Reason being you just unscrew each section and it can lay directly on the board for fast setup and cleanup. I can do it in less than a minute.

I can break out resources, an individual tray for each player, and food in their own little separate containers.

I swear by the things.

I use one that is nearly perfect for it. The only issue is you can't fit the dice cup in there without squishing it quite a bit. I'll need to look at it to get the model number. I'll try to get to it later tonite.

I used 3650.

I used a Plano 3500 box, took out the central dividers from the insert, and packed the civ cards and huts into tuck boxes. For food, resources, and tools, we take from the Plano box as needed and return them to the board, so setup is a snap.

I just dump all the pieces loosely into the box. A few benefits:

* I don't have to open anything else but the actual "box" and that saves time, and
* People respect the extra time it takes to set up so they tend to play better since a smidgen more time is invested.
* I like the leather cup. Reminds me of my tannery days.

I also use the bead stackers. They are awesome! I have two sets of 4 that house all four resources, and all four food increments (1, 2, 5, 10). Set up is a flash.

Here is an image that someone else posted of the circular bead stackers...

This person keeps the meeples in one stack where I keep the food. Then I just have a separate ziploc for each color of meeple. I also keep the tools and dice in ziplocs. Plus, I made tuckboxes for the huts and cards.

GSmith,

Do you happen to remember where you bought your Stackable containers? I got ones from Michaels craft store the other day, but they're too big. They are too wide, and thus dont allow the boards to sit flush, and so the lid doesnt close. Going to go out again to a few other craft shops this weekend, so just wondered if you remember.

Thanks!
