Since many have been wondering: yes, you can fit sleeved cards in the divider they provide. http://imgur.com/a/t9MDw

I have all of the Hogwarts cards and starting decks in FFG sleeves and all of the dark arts in Mayday games sleeves. The hogwarts and dark arts decks are in the front (larger compartment) and the other cards are in the smaller space. I also put the tokens in bags (1 for influence, 1 more attack, 1 for the rest) because that narrow space in the side is too small to use effectively without them. The game boxes are empty, but I don't want to get rid of them just yet.

Everything is in there, but it's a tight fit. Some of the dividers stick up a bit naturally, but they shift into place when you put the player tableaus over them (no bending). Any more cards or things in sleeves and it won't work.

Looks great!

Here's a trick for you. Collapse all the boxes except Box 1 and Box 4. Place the collapsed boxes in the bottom of the well they came in and then lay Box 1 and 4 on top of them so they fit the entire area and you can see their largest faces. The player tableau's can now fit over this space without fear of bending the card tabs. The boxes will be a little springy but will settle to the right height after being stored for a day or so.

Did you use any sleeves for the location/villian cards? I am not sure what will work (if any)?

I always use this GeekList to check for sleeve size and count: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/164572/item/4733392#item4...

I didn't bother with the location or villain cards. Locations don't get shuffled, and the villains only once per game. To be honest I don't really like the sleeves I got for the dark arts cards. They are too big and they're the really cheap flimsy kind. They're also the only sleeves available for that size and shape of cards, so it's those or nothing.

Found it easy to store everything. In the right side of the insert (with the dice section being at the top) I have bags with the tokens & the lower right section has all of the book one stuff. In the longer section under the dice section I made index card dividers & with the sleeved cards I have all those books sectioned off & using the extra game boxes for the books to fill in the rest. Not great looking but works well at getting the game out & separating the books.
