As anyone who has the first edition of the game knows, the insert provided is, shall we say, interesting. I strongly suspect it is due to upgrades provided by the Kickstarter project that launched this game, but as you can see by the image provided by nello, the wooden tokens overflow their intended bin and spill over into the section for the larger cards:

I've heard rumours of people getting all the tokens plus the dice to fit into the smaller section, but these folks have strange wizard powers, and in an earlier age they may be subject to burning or worse. Not that I advocate such these days, but it would be nice if they could share their TARDIS-like technology with us mere mortals.

So, lacking elite stacking abilities, I decided to do the next best thing and bin the insert, replacing it with one of my own making from dollar-store foam core. Here's what I have:

The large cards fit snugly in their bin, and with the wall extending only half way across the tin it allows me to easily lift the entire stack.

The bin for the smaller cards and dice have two levels of foam core at the base, bringing the dice and cards closer to the top of the tin, again for ease of removal.

The tokens fit very nicely in their allotted bin. Atop all of this sits the rule book, and on the rule book sits this:

This is a small draw string bag from Artscow. It is used in game for the mystery pool. You can see the rule booklet poking out from under the bag. This does a fantastic job of holding the tokens in game.

If you're interested in the bag, it can be found at http://www.artscow.com/gallery/drawstring-pouch-small/cthulh..., and for other bags (including what is at this writing a valid coupon for a fantastic deal on bags and other items) check out Direct links to ArtsCow/CowCow draw-bag designs

I got some of the FFG Star Wars and 40K bags, and leave them empty in my game bag so that I've got them for any game that needs a bag - that saves me getting loads and having to leave them in each game.

These are what I got, they're a bit more expensive than other ones, but they look nice:-
