The game takes up so much table space. Does anyone know of an app I can use to randomise card draws? That way I can keep the cards in the box.

No app, but we use two business card holders to conserve table space https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001F4PV2W/ref=oh_aui_de...

Card Warden.

It's a little clunky. There's a bit of a learning curve to figuring it out. It takes a few hours to get all the cards scanned. But after setting it up, when I've played solo and 2 player, we didn't need any physical cards besides the gear and artifact decks. HUGE space and time saver.

*Edit: To clarify. Card Warden is an app. As far as I know, it's only in the Apple Store.

Card Warden is best used on an iPad or similarly sized device. We don't use it for Gear, Artifact, or Encounter cards (since some Encounters have lasting effects, we place those on the table AND if you play with Advanced Encounters where certain cards are linked to specific tiles, it's easier to search through a deck of cards to find a particular one than to dig through the app.

A few suggestions about Card Warden. Scan all your card backs FIRST. That way when you are choosing the card back for the card you are scanning, you don't have to scroll through ALL your card scans.

Don't crop the face of Threat cards so closely that you can't tell which level they are by the border. You might end up putting a card back into a wrong deck.

Don't scan every card, just scan each unique card face. When building your deck you can put in multiples of that card to replicate which ones you actually have.

I made a deck shuffler for Loot, Scavenge and Threat Decks. You'll have to populate it it since FFP won't let anyone display their content.

But this does save some room. It's expandable as well.

I use PD-11205 from here. It saves a LOT of space, and is really well made.

I'll take a picture of my setup when I get home.

So far I have two plastic business card holders (useful for other games too like Myth) and a broken token card holder which holds the larger, heftier decks (and I need at least one more of those).

Sure it would be nice to have them all in an app, but isn't it part of the fun to have all the cards to draw?
