The Fate game box seems to be the perfect opportunity to keep the box small and design an insert which is better suited for travelling. So you could put the game in a backpack and take your ten favourite fighters with you.
I have Devastation and hate taking the game to my friends place. It is big, heavy and i can't store all the stuff in an orderly fashion so i can pull out a charakter in a couple of seconds. Also after putting it in my backpack and some city biking the game box is a mess.
What i would like to see is:
* a possibility to store all the fighter related stuff (cards,tokens,standup) in the same space for quick access.
* that the stuff in the box stays in place while travelling.
* enough space for people who sleeve their cards (i don't use sleeves but some people are).
What do you guys think?
Dignity. Always dignity!
Sounds great! Here's what I'm going to do:
Step 1 (and this one's important): Toss the insert
Step 2: Put each fighter's cards into the included character sleeve
Step 3: Put each character's entire kit into a snack size plastic bag
Step 4: Put stuff back in the box
The plastic bags keep each fighters' bits in the same bag
If the stuff shifts around a bit, who cares, it's all bagged
The character sleeves can handle every characters cards just fine with sleeves. Even Endrbyt in the Devastation box fits (just barely) into his character sleeve with sleeved cards.
This is by far the simplest solution. I have all my Devastation fighters in individual bags and it's a breeze to make a travel kit out of it. I pull out 10 fighters, all individually bagged, throw in 2 life dials and the round dial, a self printed cardstock board OR my roll up mat, and off I go.
I currently throw it all in one of those big gallon freezer bags, but I'll probably start using the Fate box and the travel sized board it comes with instead once that gets in.
