Since last week I'm the proud owner of Paths of Glory, which is my first wargame with a poster as board and small counters without anything to store them. So here's my question: How do you store the board, counters and cards in order to keep everything in mint condition?

I put all the counters in ziplocks and the cards in protectors (and then in a big ziplock or deck box). The board and rules just go into the box.

I'm not a huge stickler for condition, honestly, so I just use the little bags that came with my copy....

Small baggies are great because it keeps all the units in seperate compartments. Counter trays are awesome, but I think there may be too many counters for that in this game.

Counters in the baggies that came with the game, cards in protectors in the boxes (100 capactity) the protectors came in. With the all the extras (Players Guide, 2001 map and the 2004 mounted map w/rules) the lid doesn't lay flush anymore, but I'm reluctant to put the old maps & rules elsewhere or take the cards out of the boxes.

Thanks for the answers, this evening I'm going to 'bag' the game.

Quick question regarding card protectors---(since a card or two have already been damaged by overenthusiastic players)--can you still shuffle the cards in those things without taking them out?

I bought the cheapest transparant cardprotectors (2,50 for 100 sleeves), Magic-size. The cards shuffle not as good as they would do without, but they shuffle without falling out of their sleeves (unless you really go wild!).

Yep, you can either use transparent protectors or if the damage is obvious enough to id the card, you can buy some protectors that have a colored background (in this case get 2 different color, 1 red 1 black )
