I have several games that have loose playing cards. What are some good cases to store them? Is there a way to get customized playing card boxes cheaply? What about plastic boxes? Tuck boxes?

I know for a few of the more popular games, some BGG users have uploaded files for printing and assembling your own tuck boxes to house the cards.

Personally, I either use zip-lock baggies, or build something out of foam-core to house cards and components in.

I also use ziplock baggies. In all the games I have it works well enough to fold under the rest of the slack and pack them in carefully with the rest of the components and it is tight enough that they don't move all around and get damaged.

If you're having hull problems I feel bad for you son, I've got 99 problems but a breach ain't one.

I use Dragon Shield 4 compartment card boxes for all my PnPs without their own boxes and all those card games that come in drawstring bags like Love Letter and Cypher.

I recently ordered a game from DriveThru Cards and they sell simple plastic deckboxes, both standard and large, for $1 each (plus shipping but it's reasonable). http://www.drivethrucards.com/browse.php?keywords=deckboxes&...=

There is a wiki on Tuck Boxes on BGG that list a few tuck boxes making tools.

Most popular games with cards will have fan created tuckboxes already ready to print. Check out the "files" section of the games you have, somebody may have already done all the work for you

Elastic band then just throw the cards into the box wherever they fit.
