I'm in a dire situation, people.

A crossroads, if you will.

I have all of the expansions for this lovely game of Arkham Horror and I have printed out all the card dividers for the game.

It is time to create the foamcore storage that will fit everything in 3 boxes. However, there... are... 5 big boxes: Arkham Horror, Dunwich Horror, Innsmouth Horror, Miskatonic Horror and Kingsport Horror... What do I do!? Which 3 boxes do I keep and which boxes do I throw out?

Oh the horror! I may go mad trying to decide. Help!

Speaking of insanity and Arkham Horror storage solutions, have you seen this?

Arkham Horror Case/Mod/Partial Remake Project (absurdly long post full of pictures - make popcorn first)

I did this earlier this year, and it has definitely helped with setup/teardown time:

That's amazing! Well done. Unfortunately, they don't ship the case to Canada and amazon.ca doesn't have it or else I would totally look into getting that.

Here's another one you might try:

A google search on vintage suitcases comes up with quite a few options.

There would be enough room for all of the covers.

Consider cutting the covers out and laminate them and/or glue them onto a slab or board and keep them as pad or tray or such.

I went looking at the amazon one a while back and discounted it because they listed the interior dimensions as < 11 inches which didn't seem like it would fit the board (I see you managed it ... is it troublesome fit?).

I ended up with the Artist Case which appears everywhere, which is slightly wider but not as tall but would prefer something a little more thematic. The hobby lobby one looks like it might do the trick. So cheers for that.

That... is... astounding! I can't believe the work people have put in to these.

I would be happy fitting everything in one of those cases. So what dimensions would I need?

I used lids from some, bottoms from others. At some point I switched out too as the old boxes were getting ratty. Hold on to your boxes, just in case.

The problem is I have part of my storage closet full of expansion boxes that I haven't been able to part with, however the time has come where I need that storage space... so I have to chuck boxes and boxes of expansions... cry

P.S. empty expansions boxes!

For the Amazon case it fits just right/snug though I did a bit of positioning:

Left from bottom:
4 game boards stacked (they sit perfectly flat)
All rulebooks
Book box with large cards
Wooden book box w AOs and epic battle cards

Right from bottom:
Investigator sheets
3 Plano boxes with tokens and small cards stacked

Middle:
Dice bag
Investigator marker bag

So I am thinking of keeping the Arkham Horror base game box, the Dunwich Horror and Innsmouth Horror boxes as I think they are the best looking ones. The other boxes... will have to go...
