OK, so I know and like the Ikea KALLAX system for the "standard" square boxes (e.g. Arkham Horror) since they fit in there so well. But is there something better for the rectangular boxes (e.g. Agricola)? Or something popular with adjustable shelves?

Additionally I'm getting more and more games lately that just don't fit well onto most shelves. For example: Kingdom Death, Cthulhu Wars, Shadows of Brimstone, and FFG "coffin" boxes. Are there any good options for these?

For reference the home I'm likely moving into will have a large game room and lots of room for game shelves. Specifically I have the following wall segments and I'd like to get shelves on most if not all of them: 6.5', 12', 4.5', and 4'.

I use Billy Bookshelfs with or without the backing. Age of Discovery is stored vertical on one, no problem.

I just wanted to point out that KALLAX works great with the FFG coffin boxes, per this pic of my game room...



I just used a four-compartment unit on top, took out the first and third shelves, and laid it on its side. Works great!

Those look good, thanks! I haven't noticed them before for some reason.

Just thought I'd share that I went the KALLAX route when I moved house. Agricola, Le Havre, etc. fit fine. You can see them in this pic (second compartment up, furthest on the right)...
